From Yorkshire to the sleepy village of Thornton Lacey is only a morning's drive, but for Detective Sergeant Peter Pascoe, the distance will close off part of his life forever. Motoring down for a reunion with old friends, he arrives to find not a welcome but a grisly triple murder. Out of his jurisdiction, Pascoe is in an untenable position: one of his oldest friends is wanted for murder, his boss is ordering him back to Yorkshire, and his instincts are telling him that the local constabulary will never suspect that the crime's true motive lies not in the obvious places, but in the unexplored zones of passion within a twisted heart.

Reginald Hill was brought up in Cumbria, and has returned there after many years in Yorkshire. His Dalziel and Pascoe novels are amongst the best-loved and most admired in crime fiction. They have been adapted by the BBC, won many awards and are top ten bestsellers.From AudioFile:
Detective Sergeant Peter Pascoe's weekend with old friends (and away from his tyrannical boss, Andy Dalziel) turns into a nightmare when he arrives to find three of the party murdered. Narrator Brian Glover takes a little getting used to. He gives his author/narrator so much character that he threatens to overwhelm the story. Still, it's refreshing to hear a voice with some spice in it pouring forth an engaging story with unabashed gusto. Glover's accent may require some adjustment for American ears, but it's worth the effort. J.N. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
