Wow! How did I miss Reginald Hill!? This was fantastic: great characters, interesting plot, great writing. Gotta love a man who sends me to the dictionary. Good turns of phrase, too, my favorite being: "a smile touched [his:] lips without getting a grip..." Sometimes coming in on the middle of a series leaves you in the dark, but I never felt that with this book. The characters were so vividly drawn that I was completely involved in their stories. My only quibble is that some key plot twists depend on coincidences-- not completely improbable, but noticeably unlikely. Minor point, though, and I can't wait to read to read more in this series.
