The highly anticipated return of Dalziel and Pascoe 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. A Welsh tabloid journalist senses the story he's been chasing for years may have finally landed in his lap. A Tory MP's secretary suspects her boss's father has an unsavoury history that could taint his prime ministerial ambitions. The ruthless entrepreneur in question sends two henchmen out to make sure the past stays in the past. And the lethal pair dispatched have some awkward secrets of their own. Four stories, two mismatched detectives trying to figure it all out, and 24 hours in which to do it: Dalziel and Pascoe are about to learn the hard way exactly just how much difference a day makes!

So sad to know he died, and will never read another of his books.

Much enjoyed. Sad to think this was the last one. Pardon the pun, it was a good note to go out on!

One of the best yet. Hill manages to continue to develop Dalziel's character.

My first and probably last Insp Dalziel story. Not able to connect with the characters.

Really enjoyed this book. I think it's the best one yet of this series.

A good Dalziel & Pascoe mystery -- even more confusions than usual, and coincidences. All sorted out in the end though. We don't see much of Ellie or Pascoe this time.
