Publisher's Summary

Andy Dalziel of the Mid-Yorks CID has witnessed a murder, but it was though dark glass and he was being sick at the time. Now he finds the case shrouded in uncertainty and a string of contradictory statements. And who is his anonymous letter writer threatening suicide? Meanwhile Dalziel's colleague, Peter Pascoe, has returned from a long convalescence uncertain about his job, his marriage, or his motivations whilst having to act as a moderator to the strong-willed Dalziel. In the background and, occasionally, the foreground, are the York Mystery Plays with their Director, Eileen Chung, who uses and abuses her vast range of talents to get the cast, site, and show she wants. But mysteries linger long after the performances, mysteries with no solution.


What the Critics Say

"Hill is at his best here....This latest mystery confirms his place among top British writers who produce solid stories of detection that succeed as first-rate novels exploring human character." (Publishers Weekly)

poor quality audio

excellent writing as always.
sound quality is abysmal, muffled with occasional speed changes as well. Adjustment of treble (increase) and bass (decrease) and listening for a few hours has made it tolerable.

Sorry to say

I normally love the Dalziel and Pascoe books and have many read by Colin Buchanan and Shane Dooley. I am sorry to say that this the reader of this one, I find virtually impossible to listen to, the sound is so muffled. It's a great story, the usual complex of delights but I will be seeking out another version.
