About the Author

Reginald Hill was brought up in Cumbria, and has returned there after many years in Yorkshire. With his first crime novel, A Clubbable Woman, he was hailed as `the crime novel's best hope' and twenty years on he has more than fulfilled that promise.


While one of a police duo follows up on a cache of suicidal letters, his partner is cast as God opposite a murder suspect playing Lucifer in a contemporized medieval mystery play. According to PW , this mystery ``confirms Hill's place among top British writers who produce solid stories of detection that succeed as first-rate novels exploring human character.'' (July)

`These novels last, like a grand malt whisky'
Mail on Sunday

`One of Britain's most consistently excellent crime novelists'
The Times

`One of the masters of the modern police procedural'
Sunday Telegraph

With language that ranges from the purposely vulgar to the awkwardly sublime, author Hill ( An April Shroud, LJ 4/1/86, Deadheads, LJ 5/1/84) traces progress in Detective Andy Dalziel's latest case. Two cases actually coexist, but the rude, callous, fat, and overbearing Dalziel virtually ignores a series of suicide letters from a woman while attempting to prove that a suicide he witnessed was murder. Village inhabitants, meanwhile, prepare for presentation of a cycle of medieval mystery plays in which director Eileen Chung, ironically, wishes Dalziel to play God. Dalziel harasses the suspects in the ``murder'' case, eventually uncovering everything from drug dealing to multiple murder, but he leaves the suicide letters to assistant Pasco. Crisp prose and dry wit add momentum, culminating in bizarre twists and a heartfelt thrust at the end. Recommended for most collections.
