It starts with a phone call to Superintendent Dalziel from an old friend asking for help. But where it ends is a very different story.
Gina Wolfe has come to Mid-Yorkshire in search of her missing husband, believed dead. Her fiance, Commander Mick Purdy of the Met, thinks Dalziel should be able to take care of the job.
What none of them realize is how events set in motion decades ago will come to a violent head on this otherwise ordinary summer's day.

I never fancied the television series and so I would probably never had read this had I not read The Woodcutter by the same author . Now I'm hooked. I found it difficult to stop listening to, loved the characters and the storyline and thought it had a very satisfactory ending. Perfect in fact from start to finish.
"If you liked The Woodcutter, you'll love this"
An excellent book with the same narrator as The Woodcutter. Fast paced and well written. You do not have to have any prior knowledge of Dalziel to enjoy it. I would definitely recommend it.
"Briliant, entertaining book."
This was the first Dalziel and Pascoe I have listened to and it didn't disappoint. I had just finished listening to The Woodcutter read by Jonathan Keeble and I picked this book because it was the same narrator. The story keeps you interested from the beginning and you feel like you know the characters really well. The plot and ending are brilliant and I listened to the last chapter several times. I now want to listen to more Dalziel and Pascoe.
