All of this is great fun to watch expand through the novels but if the mysteries in each book were not interesting, the series would not work. Some in the series are stronger than others, but all of them are, at worst, interesting and at best throughly engrossing. It is always murder, sometimes by murders caught in the circumstances of their lives, sometimes by madmen, and occasionally by the good gone wrong.
There are some notes that jar. Ellie Pascoe is the weakest of the characters, seen as a feminist first and often strident, which does not quite seem to fit with her husband and often seems one dimensional. Every now and again, one of the books will wander a bit, making the reader wonder what Hill really wants to talk about. But the writing is strong, literate, often witty and spare enough to allow the reader to build an affectionate picture of the characters and countryside without being cloying. The suspects become more complex as the books progress and some of the best are the most recent. My only regret is that I did not start the series at the beginning and that I have read them all, and miss the pleasure of having a Dalziel and Pascoe story to look forward to. I've stolen the list, in order, from Wikiopedia:
1. A Clubbable Woman (1970)
2. An Advancement of Learning (1971)
3. Ruling Passion (1973)
4. An April Shroud (1975)
5. A Pinch of Snuff (1978)
6. A Killing Kindness (1980)
7. Deadheads (1983)
8. Exit Lines (1984)
9. Child's Play (1987)
10. Under World (1988)
11. Bones and Silence (1990)
12. One Small Step (novella) (1990)
13. Recalled to Life (1992)
14. Pictures of Perfection (1994)
15. The Wood Beyond (1995)
16. Asking for the Moon [SS] (1996)
o "The Last National Service Man"
o "Pascoe's Ghost"
o "Dalziel's Ghost"
o "One Small Step"
17. On Beulah Height (1998)
18. Arms and the Women (1999)
19. Dialogues of the Dead (2002)
20. Death's Jest-Book (2003)
21. Good Morning Midnight (2004)
22. The Death of Dalziel (UK Title)/Death Comes for the Fat Man (US Title) (2007)
23. A Cure for All Diseases (2008)
The plot line was intriguing, holding interest and offering surprises, although at times the dialogue, particularly the interactions at the rugby club, felt tedious without a positive impact on the storyline.
I plan to try the second novel in the series so I can see how the duo develops as a team as well as individual characters because in the first novel character development was limited.
This edition includes an opening word from Hill about his early plans for his writing career and his relationship to these characters.
A highly recommended work and a highly recommended format by the publishers.
