Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Spanning the careers of two of crime fiction's most esteemed police detectives, these four short mysteries are revelatory episodes in the complex relationship between Dalziel and Pascoe.  In the opening tale, the chilling start of the Dalziel and Pascoe partnership--never before revealed--is cemented by a killer and his shotgun.  In another, the duo investigates the fate of a woman no one has seen for a year, except her brother, who claims he is being haunted by her ghost.  Then the detectives keep vigil at an isolated farmhouse, waiting to see what is making things go bump in the night.  Finally, a jump in time to the year 2012, and the partners' last case: the first man murdered on the moon.  Set against Yorkshire's brooding landscape, Asking for the Moon shows the full spectrum of Dalziel's eccentric brilliance, the evolution of Pascoe's professionalism, the zenith of Reginald Hill's incomparable talent...and the very best British mystery can be.

Synopsis:

A special treasure for fans of Reginald Hill's renowned Yorkshire detectives, Dalziel and Pascoe!

This gathering of unusual adventures includes the long-anticipated story of the case that brought Dalziel and Pascoe together for the first time. "The Last National Service Man" is the story of the duo's first reluctant encounter. A necessity for any devoted Dalziel and Pascoe fan, this witty, ingenuous volume also includes "Pascoe's Ghost", "Dalziel's Ghost", and "One Small Step".
