Summary

The damage inflicted on a killer has led him into darkness—and a London detective now faces the most puzzling case of his career, in this taut crime thriller. From the moment he entered the world, Martin was cursed—suffering from withdrawal symptoms because of his mother’s drug abuse, taken home to a world of hunger, pain, and neglect. Eventually landing in care, his sensory abilities are nearly destroyed after years of violence inflicted on him by his mother’s boyfriends. Tormented by his life as an outcast, Martin dreams of being able to hear and smell and taste like ordinary people—and in a desperate bid to feel alive, he turns to murder . . . DI Ruben Jameson suddenly finds himself tracking a serial killer. But as he braces himself for the usual escalation and provocation, events take a strange turn—and for the first time, he wonders if he may be dealing with a predator who is trying to stop himself. Now Jameson must find the perpetrator before he slips quietly back into anonymity, never to face justice . . .

    A Yorkshire mining town is haunted by a mysterious tragedy in this “admirable addition to Hill’s Dalziel/Pascoe series” (The Washington Post Book World).   Reginald Hill “raised the classical British mystery to new heights” when he introduced pugnacious Yorkshire Det. Inspector Andrew Dalziel and his partner, the callow Sgt. Peter Pascoe (The New York Times Book Review). Their chafing differences in education, manners, technique, and temperament made them “the most remarkable duo in the annals of crime fiction” (Toronto Star). Adapted into a long-running hit show for the BBC, the Gold Dagger Award–winning series is now available as ebooks. Colin Farr has returned to Burrthorpe—and to judgmental whispers. His father had once been implicated in the disappearance of a little girl, and his apparent suicide confirmed the suspicions. Defensive, troubled, and handsome, Colin’s only comfort is with his protective and infatuated tutor, Ellie, wife of Inspector Peter Pascoe. But their increasingly questionable relationship isn’t all that’s testing Pascoe’s patience. So is solving the crime that’s plaguing Colin’s family history. But when another murder rocks the mining town, and all clues point to Colin, Pascoe and Dalziel must descend into the darkest depths of Burrthorpe to unearth its secrets. Underworld is the 11th book in the Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    Linking the dying words of three slain strangers proves risky for Dalziel and Pascoe in this “shrewd . . . and deft” mystery (The New York Times).   Reginald Hill “raised the classical British mystery to new heights” when he introduced pugnacious Yorkshire Det. Inspector Andrew Dalziel and his partner, the callow Sgt. Peter Pascoe (The New York Times Book Review). Their chafing differences in education, manners, technique, and temperament made them “the most remarkable duo in the annals of crime fiction” (Toronto Star). Adapted into a long-running hit show for the BBC, the Gold Dagger Award–winning series is now available as ebooks.   On the same night, three old men are offed: One is found in the icy rain sputtering the name “Polly” before expiring; another mumbles “Charley” after being beaten in his bathtub; and most alarmingly, the final words of the third, a cyclist knocked off the road by a drunk driver, implicate Superintendent Andrew Dalziel in the fatal hit and run. Bearing the brunt of three seemingly disparate investigations while proving his partner’s innocence, Peter Pascoe follows a confounding trail that leads to one victim’s family secrets, a shady retirement community, and corruption within the CID’s ranks that’s putting more than Dalziel’s already dicey reputation in peril.   Exit Lines is the 8th book in the Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
