The second book in the Dalziel and Pascoe series sends the two mismatched Yorkshire policemen among university students-a group for which Andy Dalziel has no great love. In fact, when he hears a dead body has been found on the grounds of Holm Coultram College, he thinks of it as a rather good start. This is 1971, and the police force does not enjoy the warmest of relations with the Ivory Tower. Nevertheless, Dalziel takes himself to college, where the single corpse is followed by another and then another, until even Dalziel is forced to admit that someone is going after the academic community with rather excessive zeal. As the investigation grows more complex, help arrives from some unexpected corners, Dalziel's callow young sergeant proves surprisingly insightful, and everyone involved gets some useful education. About the Author Reginald Hill has written more than 50 novels, including the Dalziel and Pascoe series and 24 stand-alones. Three of the stand-alones - Who Guards a Prince, Death of a Dormouse and The Spy's Wife - are available from Felony & Mayhem. Hill's many awards include the prestigious Cartier Diamond Dagger award for Lifetime Achievement in Crime Fiction, as well as an Edgar award and a Golden Dagger award for Best Crime Novel of the Year. Dalziel and Pascoe has been made into an enormously popular TV series, broadcast in both the U.S. and the UK.
