9780007313150: Asking for the Moon

Pascoe's Ghost finds the inspector investigating the fate of a woman who seems to have slipped out of the world, and hasn't been seen by a soul for a year-unless you count her brother, who claims her ghost is haunting him. Dalziel's Ghost sees the man who normally wouldn't be seen dead in a graveyard expressing a surprising interest in "the other side". One Small Step, looks to the future where murder on the moon requires the personal intervention of Commissioner Peter Pascoe... All four of these tales are told with the panache and ingenuity that has won Reginald Hill his reputation as probably the finest British crime writer of the modern era.

From the Publisher:

"Reginald Hill has raised the classical British mystery to new heights."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A lot of people write classic detective stories, but Reginald Hill is one of the elite few who write classy classics."
--The Baltimore Sun

"The real joy of the Dalziel-Pascoe books is the writing and the characterizations. Mr. Hill has such disparate writers as Trollope, Beerbohm, Sayers and Shaw in his blood."
--The New York Times

From the Inside Flap:

Spanning the careers of two of crime fiction's most esteemed police detectives, these four short mysteries are revelatory episodes in the complex relationship between Dalziel and Pascoe.  In the opening tale, the chilling start of the Dalziel and Pascoe partnership--never before revealed--is cemented by a killer and his shotgun.  In another, the duo investigates the fate of a woman no one has seen for a year, except her brother, who claims he is being haunted by her ghost.  Then the detectives keep vigil at an isolated farmhouse, waiting to see what is making things go bump in the night.  Finally, a jump in time to the year 2012, and the partners' last case: the first man murdered on the moon.  Set against Yorkshire's brooding landscape, Asking for the Moon shows the full spectrum of Dalziel's eccentric brilliance, the evolution of Pascoe's professionalism, the zenith of Reginald Hill's incomparable talent...and the very best British mystery can be.
