    Superintendent Dalziel had a somewhat cynical view of what college administrations spent his taxes on. But when he and that over-educated Sergeant of his, Pascoe, were sent to investigate a disinterred corpse at Holm Coultram College, he hadn't reckoned on a rash of fresh killings. While Pascoe rekindled an old flame on the staff, protesting students identified Dalziel as a 'fascist pig'. The Superintendent smiled with satisfaction...if that's how they wanted to play it.

    Very disappointing!

But when his boos, 'Dandy' Dick Elgood, suggested to Peter Pascoe that Aldermann was a murderer, then retracted the accusation, the inspector was left with a thorny problem. Though by then a police cadet had dug up some very interesting information about Patrick's elegant wife.

Inspector Pascoe is called in to investigate the first death, but when the dying words of the accident victim suggest that a drunken Superintendent Dalziel had been behind the wheel, the integrity of the entire Mid-Yorkshire CID is called into question.

    Great listen

    Loved the story. Narration brilliant, Andrew Buchanan's wonderful narration really enhanced a very well written story.
