"Reginald Hill is quite simply one of the best at work today."--Boston Globe There is no end to the praise mystery writer Reginald Hill has already earned for his British police procedurals featuring Chief Inspector Peter Pascoe and Detective Superintendent "Fat Andy" Dalziel. Having recently bested Harlan Coben, Val McDermid, Michael Connelly, and James Patterson for the Crime Writers Association's Mystery and Thriller People's Choice Dagger, the master returns with The Price of Butcher's Meat--as a recuperating Andy Dalziel (following his close brush with mortality in Death Comes for the Fat Man) gets involved in the murderous politics of a not-so-peaceful seaside community. The Price of Butcher's Meat is more "great stuff from one of the greats, and a true must for fans of British crime" (Denver Rocky Mountain News).

A bomb couldn't kill Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel--but his convalescence at the Avalon Clinic in the quaint seaside resort of Sandytown ("Home of the Healthy Holiday") just might. Sneaking out to the local pub provides Fat Andy with a bit of necessary diversion, allowing him a pint or two on the sly, plus an update on the world of trouble outside the clinic--including the very different plans of a pair of powerful landowners for putting Sandytown more prominently on the map. But when a rather macabre murder calls Chief Inspector Peter Pascoe onto the scene, Fat Andy realizes that Avalon itself is no sanctuary from the lethal secrets of the local elite--or from the death tide that now, suddenly, is rising quite rapidly.
