‘These novels last, like a grand malt whisky’
Mail on Sunday
‘One of Britain’s most consistently excellent crime novelists’
‘One of the masters of the modern police procedural’
"Hill's wit is the constant, ironic foil to his vision, and to call this a mere crime novel is to say Everest is a nice little hill".
Frances Hegarty, 'Mail on Sunday'
A ravaged, cratered wood, a man in uniform long dead- this is not a World War One battlefield, but Wanwood House, a pharmaceutical research centre.
Peter Pascoe attends his grandmother's funeral, and scattering her ashes leads him too into war-ravaged woods in search of his great-grandfather who fought and died at Passchendaele.
Seeing the wood for the trees is the problem for Andy Dalziel when he finds himself fancying an animal rights activist, despite her possible complicity in a murderous assault and her appalling taste in whiskey.
'The Wood Beyond' presents a cast of fascinating characters and a mind-bending puzzle, leading us to the wild side of pastoral, through fields where nothing may safely graze, into woods where no bird dare sing…
"This is as good as the English detective novel gets".
