Bookmarks Magazine's Reviews > Good Morning, Midnight
by Reginald Hill
British writer and Dagger award-winning author Reginald Hill isn't just verbose; he's prolific as well. That the 21st installment of his Dalziel-Pascoe series (after 2003's Death's Jest-Book) turns its attention to America and international arms conspiracies strikes some critics as evidence that Hill's mid-Yorkshire has been tapped out of story ideas. Worse yet, The Scotsman believes Dalziel has devolved from a character to a caricature. On the western side of the Atlantic, the critics welcome Hill's intricate plots, large vocabulary and wit, and intelligent approach to the mystery genre. Hill "keeps the reader mesmerized," noted the Providence Journal.
