The thing with Reginald Hill is that almost all of his books are intelligent, engaging and full of well-developed characters. So the spectrum of writing is good to incredibly good. This early D&P entry, "A Killing Kindness" is closer to the good end than to the great. Author Hill puts a heavy focus on the procedural side of detective work as the dynamic duo plus the estimable Sergeant Wield track a serial killer with a penchant for explaining himself/herself with quotes from Shakespeare. Additional color is added with a look at English gypsies who inhabit the story start to finish.

For regular fans of Dalziel and Pascoe, who haven't gotten to this novel yet, this is number five in the series, chronicling a well-developed relationship between the two cops and including a pregnant Ellie Pascoe and a still-in-the-closet and lovelorn Sergeant Wield. It's a good read with plenty of indications of the great things that are to follow in this series.

A Killing Kindness is an early Dalziel and Pascoe book. It has the usual pace, humour and insight that Reginald Hill brings to all his books. If you are a fan and not read this one yet, then I can recommend it to you. You will discover some of the background to Wield, and to Pascoe's marriage.

The book is a well written story that holds the readers attention throughout, plenty of twists to keep you guessing, well it kept me guessing because the book was incomplete, the book was a good number of pages short of the required amount. There were more shocks trying to deal with amazon customer service than this book could ever contain.

A dreadful copy. Ex library stock, it is scruffy with a torn front page. Very disappointing.

I always enjoy the duo from Yorkshire but the denoument of the plot, hinted at in the title, was unconvincing.
