Still very good, but not his best,
This review is from: The Death of Dalziel: A Dalziel and Pascoe Novel (Paperback)
Here the pairing of policemen Dalziel and Pascoe is broken early as an explosion at a crime-scene puts Dalziel in a coma and in hospital. Pascoe goes solo in his efforts to find out what happened but feels blocked by colleagues in an anti-terrorism unit. The mysterious Knights Templar, Muslim characters and terrorism all play roles.
Hill's trademarks are there : he writes well, builds a sound plot and is good with his characterisations.
The story is interesting without being complex or overly challenging.
I have not read all of the Dalziel and Pascoe books, but I would say that this is on par with those I have read; it falls shy, however, of the standard set by Hill in "The Stranger House" and some of his other novels. 9/10
