But over his investigation looms the huge form of Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel.

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.

Tedious in the Extreme

I could hardly get through the first hour of this book. So far it consists of smarmy tedious letters being written to Pascoe by some criminal he helped put away. I can't bear to go on, way too tedious for me. Ugh. What a waste of my credits.
