The brilliant new crime thriller featuring Dalziel and Pascoe from the Top Ten Bestseller, Reginald Hill The locked-room suicide of Pal Maciver exactly mirrors that of his father ten years earlier.
In both cases, Pal's stepmother Kay Kafka is implicated.
But Kay has a formidable champion in the form of Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel...An obstructive superior is just the first of DCI Peter Pascoe's problems.
Disentangling the tortured relations of the Maciver family is any detective's nightmare, and the fallout from Pal's death reaches far beyond Yorkshire.
For some, it seems, the heart is a locked room where it is always midnight...
