5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, 1 Oct 2009

This review is from: Under World (Paperback)
I'm a long-term fan of Reginald Hill, and I bought and lost this many years ago. I decided to re-read my Dalziel and Pascoes and couldn't put up with the missing link, so purchased it again. It was as wonderful as I remembered, and the sub plots in this book make it one of his very, very best, even better than Death's Jest Book which in my opinion is his best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Underworld, 7 Feb 2011
This review is from: Under World (Paperback)
[[ASIN:0684189313 Underworld: A New Dalziel-Pascoe Murder Mystery]

The Dalziel & Pascoe series is familiar to many people from TV. The books are better - witty, thoughtful, wide-ranging both emotionally & politically, but never losing the lightness of touch characteristic of classic English crime-writing.

This is one of the best. Ellie, Peter Pascoe's wife, is easing back into the workplace following the birth of their child, by teaching a course to young workers on day release. Among them is a rather Lawrentian young miner, who longs to leave an area saturated in the bitter memories of the era of mine closures & the prolonged, ultimately defeated, strike. A dark secret involving his own father & the disappearance of a child ties him to the pit, & the scarred landscape. Ellie's marriage comes under some strain as she tries to balance her leftist & feminist tendencies with loyalty to Peter. It doesn't help that she's attracted to the wild boy, who both literally & metaphorically takes her down into the underworld. Unlike him, she escapes in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up to the usual high standard, 18 Mar 2013

This review is from: Under World (Paperback)
Despite having seen most of the books in the adapted TV series, these books are still worth reading as they give far more depth to the characters and allow Dalziel in particular to shine in a more colourful manor
