Reginald Hill is one of my all time favorite mystery authors; he ranks right up there with Dorothy L. Sayers in my book. This entry in the Dalziel-Pascoe series is a bit different in that he uses a character's emails and tape recordings of Andy Dalziel's to tell the story. The tape recordings from Dalziel's point of view are hilarious and must have been a lot of fun to write. The story is complex, the characters well drawn and there is a character from previous books who makes a reappearance in a rather creepy way. A new one just came out and I can't wait to get it..... Oh, through the introduction to this you learn that Hill is a "Janeite", i.e. a Jane Austen devotee, so it is fun to see the parallels in this novel to her unfinished novel "Sanditon".....
