Description

Three times Detective Chief Inspector Pascoe has wrongly accused dead-pan joker Franny Roote.

But over his investigation looms the huge form of Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel.

engrossing attention-getter

Riveting, excellent character development. Engrossing with well-written literary story line. DI Pascoe and his family, relationships with friends and many questions I've had over the years are finally clearly delineated. Entertaining and satisfying, no loose ends, but an avenue for a continuation.

Pure pleasure

I've now "read" several Dalziel and Pascoe novels and have enjoyed every single one. This one was no exception. The character development was seamless and gave me an intimate sense of each character. While complex, the plot was effectively told. Shaun Dooley is a perfect narrator for these stories - using a unique tone for each character, like watching a play unfold. Kudos to both author and narrator!

Hill IS addictive

One of the reviewers who posts here has said repeatedly that listening to HIll's books is addictive and I have come to agree with him. I love listening to these books which continue to have delightful characters. They are also well plotted, humorous, suspenseful and intelligent. The reader of the last three Hill books is one of the VERY best. I wish he would redo some of the books about which other readers have complained. Evelyn

confusing without the back story

I did enjoy this, as do all the Dalziel & Pascoe novels, but here it feels like the sequel to a storyline I haven't read, something about an unresolved serial killer (?), and the previous book of the series is unavailable from audible.

Tedious in the Extreme

I could hardly get through the first hour of this book. So far it consists of smarmy tedious letters being written to Pascoe by some criminal he helped put away. I can't bear to go on, way too tedious for me. Ugh. What a waste of my credits.

Death's Jest-Book

I did not care for this story at all. I dislike certain filthy words concerning women included in this book. I also dislike the narration by Shaun Dooley.
Wish I had Saved my credit,

Could not follow the narration

Better read than listen, narrator just lost me.

DeathŽs Jest Book

Sehr spannendes Buch, das an Epilogue of the Dead anschließt. Wunderbarer Vorleser. Der Plot ist sehr komplex, aber schlüssig. Alle interessanten Nebenfiguren sind diesmal als Hauptpersonen dabei, Ry Pomona, Hat Bowler und Franny Roote. Einige Einsichten zum Tod haben mich tief berührt. Unbedingt anhören!
