The brilliant new crime thriller featuring Dalziel and Pascoe from the Top Ten Bestseller, Reginald Hill Like father like son! But heredity seems to have gone a gene too far when Pal Maciver's suicide in a locked room exactly mirrors that of his father ten years earlier. In each case accusing fingers point towards Pal's stepmother, the beautiful enigmatic Kay Kafka. But she turns out to have a formidable champion, Mid-Yorkshire's own super-heavyweight, Detective Superintendent Andrew Dalziel. DCI Peter Pascoe, nominally in charge of the investigation, finds he is constantly body-checked by his superior as he tries to disentangle the complex relationships of the Maciver family. At first these inquiries seem local and domestic. What really happened between Pal and his stepmother? And how has key witness and exotic hooker Dolores, Our Lady of Pain, contrived to disappear from the face of Mid-Yorkshire? Gradually, however, it becomes clear that the fall-out from Pal's suicide spreads far beyond Yorkshire to London, to America. Even to Iraq.But the emotional epicentre is firmly placed in Mid-Yorkshire where Pascoe comes to learn that for some people the heart too is a locked room, and in there it is always midnight.

    Mentre Dalziel giace in coma, gravemente ferito da una bomba, ed un gruppo di vigilantes cammuffati da templari è intenzionato ad eliminare tutti gli estremisti islamici e i loro simpatizzanti, Pascoe, malamente affiliato ad una sezione antiterrorismo di Manchester, cerca di capire chi abbia messo la bomba e chi si nasconda dietro gli pseudonimi medievali.
    Statico e prolisso, non è certo uno dei migliori della serie, l'intreccio non appassiona e si arriva in fondo solo per sapere se, alla fine, Dalziel morirà o no.
    Il che, per un giallo, è un po' pochino.
