Publisher's Summary

When Mary Dinwoodie is found choked in a ditch following a night out with her boyfriend, a mysterious caller phones the local paper with a quotation from Hamlet. The career of the Yorkshire Choker is under way.... If Detective Superintendent Dalziel is unimpressed by the literary phone calls, he's downright angry when Sergeant Wield calls in a clairvoyant. Linguists, psychiatrists, mediums, it's all a load of nonsense as far as he's concerned. But meanwhile the Choker strikes again and again and again.

This is how it should be

Why aren't all Audiobooks as classy as this? Wonderful writing, but above all, a five star interpretation by Colin Buchanan. If only some of the dreary, story wrecking narrators would listen to this guy. He is equally as good on all of the other Reginald Hill books in the catalogue.

Another in a great series

Hill delivers another good crime story with his crusty Dalzell and plodding Pascoe. Colin Buchanan should read all of Hill's work because he is simply the 'voice' of Hill for me. And the acerbic wit of Dalzell makes me laugh out loud at times. An enjoyable listen!
