Arms and the Women (Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries)by Reginald Hill
Synopses & Reviews
Someone attempts to abduct Ellie Pascoe, and her friend, Daphne Alderman, is assaulted by a man keeping watch on the Pascoe house. Dalziel, Pascoe and Wield feel certain there must be a link here with one of Pascoe's cases, either current or past. Only DC Shirley Novello wonders whether perhaps these events might have more to do with Ellie than her husband.
While the men concentrate on their individual theories, Ellie, her daughter Rosie, Daphne, and Novello (their official minder) head for the coast to the supposed safety of the Alderman's holiday home, Cleets Cottage. But their flight proves somewhat futile as Ellie's would-be abductor continues to send her letters of possibly threatening intent, composed in a strange Elizabethan English.
Hill's stunning novel featuring the improbable inspector duo of Andy Dalziel and Peter Pascoe, along with Sergeant Wield, opens with an attempt to abduct Pascoe's wife, Ellie. She is able to flee to safety, but staying away from this persistent stalker is no easy task.
