It’s difficult writing reviews in a series of books, unless of course one has really deflated you. Fortunately, this isn’t the case and Mr Hill has triumphed once again with a delightful story full of more twists and turns than Spaghetti Junction.

The crime writing genius of the man behind Dalziel & Pascoe, but in a comedy setting. Lots of fun.

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.

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.
