Dalziel & Pascoe #04: An April Shroud Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

After seeing Inspector Pascoe off on his honeymoon, Superintendent Andy Dalziel runs into trouble on his own holiday. He accompanies his rescuers back to their rundown mansion, where he discovers that Lake House's owner, Bonnie Fielding, seems less troubled by her husband's tragic death than by the problem of completing the Banqueting Hall. Prompted not only by a professional curiosity — why would anyone want to keep a dead rat in a freezer? — but also by Mrs Fielding's ample charms, Dalziel stays on. By the time Pascoe reappears, there have been several more deaths...

Synopsis:

A country-house mystery. The phrase evokes an image of 1930s fops in dinner jackets, starched family retain¬ers, pale fingers dripping strychnine in the gin. It does not evoke an image of the belching Andy Dalziel, and yet there he is, on an enforced holiday, fetched up at a crumbling country manor, and sticking his bulbous nose into circumstances surrounding the late owner's unusual demise. As this is 1972, rather than 1932, the fops are sporting t-shirts and excessive facial hair, and the family retainer is knocking ash in the micro¬waved stew. But there is a femme, and while she may or may not be fatale, she's fabulous enough to waken even Dalziel's long dormant romantic dreams. Peter Pascoe could apply the brakes, but he's on his honeymoon, establishing his own romantic dreams with Ellie. For good or ill, love is in the air.

Synopsis:

Must reading for Dalziel-Pascoe fans.Hill creates real characters, and he has raised the classical British mystery to new heights. --New York Times A welcome addition to a popular series. --Library Journal
