engrossing attention-getter

Riveting, excellent character development. Engrossing with well-written literary story line. DI Pascoe and his family, relationships with friends and many questions I've had over the years are finally clearly delineated. Entertaining and satisfying, no loose ends, but an avenue for a continuation.

Pure pleasure

I've now "read" several Dalziel and Pascoe novels and have enjoyed every single one. This one was no exception. The character development was seamless and gave me an intimate sense of each character. While complex, the plot was effectively told. Shaun Dooley is a perfect narrator for these stories - using a unique tone for each character, like watching a play unfold. Kudos to both author and narrator!
