Publisher's Summary

Superintendent Dalziel had a somewhat cynical view of what college administrations spent his taxes on. But when he and that over-educated Sergeant of his, Pascoe, were sent to investigate a disinterred corpse at Holm Coultram College, he hadn't reckoned on a rash of fresh killings. While Pascoe rekindled an old flame on the staff, protesting students identified Dalziel as a 'fascist pig'. The Superintendent smiled with satisfaction...if that's how they wanted to play it.

Advancement of Learning

This is not a review of the book, but rather the reader. He's awful. His voice is tinny and hard to understand and his manner of speaking, or reading, is rhythmic and shrill. I kept trying to get around it, but it was no use. I couldn't get past the first chapter.

What the heck?

The narration sounds like its coming from the bottom of a rain barrel --- muffled, fuzzy and the same for ALL the voices,,, how can Pascoe and Dalziel sound alike?
I have no idea what this story is about. Tried a couple of hours but couldn't handle more

Enjoyable story, ruined by dreadful reading

Would you try another book written by Reginald Hill or narrated by Brian Glover?

Any of Reginald Hill books makes a good read so would always buy further books, except if read by Brian Glover who is awful, primarily because of constant changes of sound level

Bad recording

Although I persevered with this, the quality of this recording is shocking. Made it difficult to enjoy as I was constantly straining.
