2008 Contemporary Mystery Nominee

RT Rating

Modern mystery great Hill combines the often erudite viewpoint and vocabulary of the well-educated Brit with the insane humor of Monty Python. His latest about Yorkshire detectives Andrew Dalziel and Peter Pascoe is told from many viewpoints, including hilarious e-mails and an oral diary. His perfect voice incorporates humor, intelligence, an intricate mystery, surprise endings and well-developed characters for a fabulous book.

Dalziel is recovering from an injury at a private clinic in the sea resort
of Sandytown. When the obnoxious but rich and powerful Lady Denham ends up dead, the mystery is on. The deaths and the hilarity continue as Dalziel and Pascoe work on solving the mystery, each in his own way. (Harper, Nov., 528 pp., $25.95)
