9780061451973: Midnight Fugue (Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries (Paperback))

Reginald Hill, award-winning author of The Price of Butcher's Meat and Death Comes for the Fat Man, returns with Midnight Fugue, a riveting new crime novel featuring Yorkshire coppers Dalziel and Pascoe as they tackle the case of a detective who went missing seven years ago under suspicious circumstances. Taking place within the space of a single October Sunday and alternating between Mid-Yorkshire and London, Midnight Fugue is a riveting, complex mystery that builds to a dramatic, twisting conclusion.

Review:

"Hill juggles multiple intertwined subplots and characters, inflicting plenty of murder and mayhem on the populace before Dalziel wraps it all up in one 24-hour day. As clever and twisty as ever, this is another winner from an old master."--Portsmouth Herald

"The sleights of hand that Hill manages to pull off are stunning, not to mention the sly, wry style of a rogue with a dry wit and a sharp eye. . . . It's a tour de force that Hill manages to pull off with ease."--Providence Journal

"[The] most amusing and satisfying of all the Dalziel and Pascoe books. . . . A master of the British police procedural."--Tampa Tribune

"The short time frame of British author Hill's strong 24th Dalziel and Pascoe procedural (after 2008's The Price of Butcher's Meat) maximizes suspense without sacrificing either characterization or humor. . . . Numerous subplots don't slow the pace, a testament to Hill's skill in putting all the pieces together."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Hill's achievement here should be savoured. . . . It's a tiny perfect thrill of perfection. This is one of Hill's best novels, one of the best this year or any year."--Globe and Mail (Toronto)

A must for series fans--Booklist

"This seemingly simple case turns into a major puzzler... Hill writes of these tricky matters in a fluid and witty style that eventually lifts the old lion from his torpor and restorse him to roaring health."--New York Times Book Review

"Hill keeps a particularly nasty surprise up his sleeve for last. The accelerated timetable gives Dalziel and Pascoe's 24th a Rube Goldberg effervescence that contrasts effectively with the pervasive sadness beneath."--Kirkus Reviews

"This complicated mystery with great characters and a fast pace will attract Hill's loyal following and fans of British police procedurals. Hill is a very talented wordsmith as well, and his works should appeal to those seeking out well-written, carefully crafted crime novels."--Library Journal

"[Hill] does it again in his new Dalziel and Pascoe book, Midnight Fugue, succeeding in brilliant fashion... His writing is assured and relaxed. His touch is deft, and he even allows Fat Andy to show a caring and sentimental side, something surprising in the great old copper's senior years."--Toronto Star

One of the best of the Brits, Reginald Hill, adds another winner to his resume and another chapter to the saga of Dalziel and Pascoe--with Midnight Fugue--San Diego Union-Tribune

From the Back Cover:

Still recovering from a near-fatal bomb blast, Superintendent Andy Dalziel is eager to get back up to speed--and loses an entire day in the process.

Agreeing to help Gina Wolfe search for her missing husband--a policeman who vanished years earlier under a very dark cloud--"Fat Andy" doesn't realize that events set in motion decades ago will come to a violent head on this otherwise ordinary summer's day. Caught up in an intricate composition played up-tempo by a vicious gangster and his politician son; a tabloid journalist chasing the deadliest story of his career; and a desperate wife/widow/fiancee unaware of the target on her forehead, Dalziel has only twenty-four hours to pursue this twisting piece to its shocking, discordant conclusion--hoping that justice will not be among the ultimate victims.
