A ravage wood pocked with water-filled craters, men in uniform and a skeletal hand reaching out of the mud - this is not a World War I battlefield, but Wanwood House, a pharmaceutical research centre. It is another case for Dalziel and Pascoe.

The old trick of splitting a central character into two very different parts and using the tension to create literary sparks has worked for writers as diverse as Rex Stout (Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin) and Patrick O'Brian (Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin). Nobody in the mystery field does it better these days than Hill, whose down-and-dirty Inspector Dalziel (pronounced Dah-eel in the A&E TV series) jigs and jousts wonderfully with his smart, sensitive sidekick Pascoe. Their latest outing is one of the best in the series, with Pascoe digging up some old bones and family secrets from his own past. (Other Dalziel/Pascoe books include Blood Sympathy, Exit Lines, Pictures of Perfection, A Pinch of Snuff, Ruling Passion.)From the Publisher:
Reginald Hill, who The New York Times says "has raised the classical mystery to new heights," returns with The Wood Beyond, a textured and psychologically intricate mystery featuring crude Inspector Dalziel and sensitive Inspector Pascoe.
Dalziel, Pascoe, and Wield, their sergeant, are called in to investigate the discovery of some very old bones that were found in a pit near a large pharmaceutical research laboratory, where an animal rights group is protesting. While they begin to investigate this bizarre unearthing, Pascoe discovers some startling information about his grandfather, a Yorkshire soldier during World War I. As he pursues this eighty-year-old mystery, the current investigation continues, until both cases converge in a stunning and unforgettable climax.
