The fourth Dalziel and Pasco police procedural.
Dalziel participates in Peter Pascoe´s wedding; afterwards he goes on holiday in an extremely wet Britain. Of course it turns into a kind of busman´s honeymoon.
The plot did not strike me as too credible, but Dalziel´s meeting with the privileged Fielding family in an environment much like The Lady of Shalott was quite funny. And believe it or not, the big man shows a soft spot or two when he gets to know the charming widow Bonnie Fielding.
An enjoyable read, and I am looking forward to the ten volumes or so I have on my shelf.
NB: please pop over to Ann Summerville´s blog “Cozy in Texas” later today when she publishes an interview with me. Ann is the writer of a couple of cosy crime series.
