A Diamond Dagger Award winner. Just because lawyers are rude and expensive doesn't mean P.I. Joe Sixsmith killed two of them. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Meanwhile, a young track star is being threatened with all sorts of nasty things if she shows up at the right place--a new sports complex--at the right time.

More Joe Sixsmith. He wears well!
Caroline Cormack
The crime writing genius of the man behind Dalziel & Pascoe, but in a comedy setting. Lots of fun.
Kirsty Darbyshire
The third Joe Sixsmith novel; I don't think there are many more. I'll certainly read them anyway. Not top class Hill but very decently written and well plotted with plenty of humour.
This is the first mystery I have read in Hill's Joe Sixsmith series. I think the Dalziel and Pascoe series is better, but this was entertaining.
Richard Aldred
My first non-Dalziel book by Reginald Hill; entertaining enough, frequently quite amusing, but not especially good.
Not quite on a par with "Good Morning, Midnight" by the same author, but enjoyable nonetheless.
This series is growing on me. The main characters are imperfect, but immensely likable.
very witty and well developed story. Liked it alot.
Joe wins through nicely
