This installment in the Dalziel and Pascoe series features police politics, allegations of homosexuality on the CID, family intrigue, and two murders. As is often the case, Dalziel somehow manages to resolve it all. Narrator Colin Buchanan, having played the role of Pascoe in three BBC series based on the novels, brings a wealth of experience to his reading. His Dalziel is as close to Dalziel as a reader can get. And Pascoe is, of course, Pascoe--never completely on top of what's going on and far behind Dalziel in pursuit of the several plots. Buchanan's presentation of Sergeant Wield's emotional traumas is also superb. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
