Lecturers having it away with students, witches’ sabbaths on the sand dunes, a body buried under a statue in the gardens…

So when Dalziel and that over-educated sergeant of his, Peter Pascoe, are sent to investigate a disinterred corpse at Holm Coultram College, he hadn’t reckoned on a rash of killings.

While Pascoe rekindles an old flame on the staff, protesting students astutely identify Dalziel as a ‘fascist pig’. The Superintendent smiles with satisfaction. If that’s how they want to play it…

Review:

Praise for ‘The Stranger House’:

Grim, gory, fascinating, enraging and entertaining.’ Independent

‘A mystery novel but far more than that. It's gripping… Hill is wonderful.' The Times

‘Exhilarating' Sunday Times

‘You're enthralled by the cunning of the plotting… great.' Observer

‘It's a complex, multi-layered plot… it takes a master like Mr Hill to turn it into such an absorbing and atmospheric mystery.' Sunday Telegraph

Praise for ‘Good Morning, Midnight’:

‘A real treat. The characters are deftly drawn, the plot constantly delivers surprises and the assured narrative demonstrates again what a terrific writer he is.' Observer
