9780006490005: On Beulah Height (A Dalziel & Pascoe Novel)

‘Hill is an instinctive and complete novelist who is blessed with a spontaneous storytelling gift’ Frances Fyfield, Mail on Sunday

They moved everyone that long hot summer fifteen years ago. They needed a new reservoir and an old community seemed a cheap price to pay. They even dug up the dead and moved them too.
But four inhabitants of the valley they couldn’t move, for nobody knew where they were. Three little girls had gone missing, and the prime suspect in their disappearance, Benny Lightfoot
This was Andy Dalziel’s worst case and now fifteen years on he looks set to relive it. It’s another long hot summer. A child goes missing in the next valley, and old fears arise as someone sprays the deadly message on the wall of Danby: BENNY’S BACK!
Music and myth mingle as the Mid-Yorkshire team delve into their pasts and into their own reserves of experience and endurance in search of answers which threaten to bring more pain than they resolve.

Review:

'On Beulah Height must rank as his best yet... Reginald Hill's novels are really dances to the music of time' Ian Rankin, Scotland on Sunday 'Few writers in the genre today have Hill's gifts: formidable intelligence, quick humour, compassion and a prose style that blends elegance and grace' Donna Leon, Sunday Times

From the Back Cover:

"'On Beulah Height' must rank as his best yet…Reginald Hill's novels are really dances to the music of time, his heroes and villains interconnecting, their stories entwining"
IAN RANKIN

They moved everyone out of Dendale that long hot summer fifteen years ago. They needed a new reservoir and an old community seemed a cheap price to pay. They even dug up the dead and moved them too.

But four inhabitants of the valley they couldn't move, for no one knew where they were. Three little girls had gone missing, and the prime suspect in their disappearance, Benny Lightfoot.

This was Andy Dalziel's worst case and now fifteen years on he looks set to relive it. It's another long hot summer. A child goes missing in the next valley, and old fears resurface as someone sprays the deadly message on the walls of Danby:
BENNY'S BACK

"All Reginald Hill's novels are brilliantly written, but he has excelled himself here"
'Evening Standard'

"A long, richly complex, often lyrical and genuinely haunting crime novel"
'Daily Telegraph'
