Summary

Hill is on top form in this sixth story in the Dalziel and Pascoe series. When Mary Dinwoodie is found choked in a ditch following a night out with her boyfriend, a mysterious caller phones the local paper with a quotation from Hamlet. The career of the Yorkshire Choker is underway.If Superintendent Dalziel is unimpressed by the literary phone calls, he is downright angry when Sergeant Wield calls in a clairvoyant. Linguists, psychiatrists, mediums – it’s all a load of nonsense as far as he is concerned, designed to make a fool of him. And meanwhile the Choker strikes again – and again.

Critic reviews

‘Few writers in the genre today have Hill’s gifts: formidable intelligence, quick humour, compassion and a prose style that blends elegance and grace" (Donna Leon, Sunday Times)
‘The finest male English contemporary crime writer" (Val McDermid)
"Reginald Hill’s novels are really dances to the music of time, his heroes and villains interconnecting, their stories intertwining." (Ian Rankin)
