  • The Death of Dalziel by Reginald HillI'm a massive fan of Dalziel and Pascoe, and have practically grown up watching the TV series. However, I didn't realise they were books until I found one in a charity shop. It was probably the wrong Dalziel and Pascoe book to start with, but nevertheless it was brilliant. For me, Dalziel and Pascoe will always be Warren Clarke and Colin Buchanan, so I had no problem picturing them. The dialogue was really well written and several times I laughed out loud, wh [...]

  • Wow! How did I miss Reginald Hill!? This was fantastic: great characters, interesting plot, great writing. Gotta love a man who sends me to the dictionary. Good turns of phrase, too, my favorite being: "a smile touched [his:] lips without getting a grip" Sometimes coming in on the middle of a series leaves you in the dark, but I never felt that with this book. The characters were so vividly drawn that I was completely involved in their stories. My only quibble is that some key plot twists depend [...]

  • I can't believe I am almost done with this series. Another great novel from Hill. I really enjoyed it-like meeting old friends. Only two to go. I am so sad that Hill dies and Dalziel and Pascoe are almost done as well.

  • It was a fascinating process to watch; Pascoe works his way through survivor's guilt to find those responsible for putting Andy Dalziel in a coma, and winds up assuming his boss' attitudes, mannerisms, occasional outbursts of harsh speech to friends and colleagues alike - and, aware of it, also assumes more guilt for the insensitivity he shows. Another look, also, into the inner workings of the "funny buggers", MI5 or 6, the UK's FBI/CIA equivalents, with whom Pascoe has to work to solve this ca [...]

  • Two mutton pasties, an almond slice and a custard tart are not the normal order that a superior officer would give to a subordinate faced with a possible armed siege. But then, Andy Dalziel's never been one for all that official mucking about and Hector's never been one that anybody really believes. Number 3 Mill Street, an Asian and Arab specialist Video store, is an address flagged for low level interest by the Combined Anti-Terrorism Unit. Inspector Ireland's not convinced that Dalziel is tak [...]

  • Although I've followed the adventures of Dalziel and Pascoe on TV, this is the first Reginald Hill book I've read. It's alleged that, unlike Colin Dexter with John Thaw's Morse, Reginald Hill does not approve of Warren Clarke playing Andy Dalziel in the TV adaptations of his novels (he isn't fat enough to play the Fat Man for a start). Hill denies it, of course (or at least he denied it in a recent interview I read), but his latest book represents a formidable challenge to the TV adapters. For t [...]

  • 4 & 1/2 stars. i've been reading Reginald Hill since his first book came out, but this one is particularly good, and a bit of a tour de force to write. essentially Peter Pascoe has to, in the absence of Andy Dalziel, become him in order to solve the case. which has some interesting consequences for Pascoe. and at the same time Dalziel is present only in dream, and the dream sequences are far from the usual boilerplate, just like Dalziel himself. eventually all of it fits together into the ca [...]

  • I chose this book because the title made me laugh, and the blurb on the back was intriguing. I LOVE this book because it's truly well done. Even though the reader's actual knowledge of the titular character is done through flashbacks and quotes, I love the guy. I cannot wait to go back in the series and start from the beginning, Fat Andy rocks. And it's testament to Hill's ability to properly characterize that a first time reader absolutely got the sense of, of all things, a man in a coma!The ot [...]

  • Audio.This was a good book to listen to. Excellent narrator and the story fairly romped along.This is #22 in Reginald Hill's popular Yorkshire series of Dalziel and Pascoe.Caught in the full blast of a huge explosion, Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel lies on a hospital bed, with only a life support system and his indomitable will between him and the Great Beyond.His colleague, Detective Chief Inspector Peter Pascoe, after recovering from his injuries, is determined to bring those responsibl [...]

  • A 'brilliant' murder mystery from the UK, and not focused on London. Interesting insight into modern day England, its conflicts and deverse ethnic groups. Character-based rather than plot, its part of a series. Character humor, good dialogue, not gruesome or sensational. You want to be chums with these fellows.

  • Thoroughly entertaining, witty, full of literary quotes and allusions, and with a cast to die for. There are plenty of brilliant reviews of this excellent book, so I won't go on at any length about it. Suffice to say Hill never puts a foot wrong in this book, and there's not a word that's unnecessary.

  • I adore Andy Dalziel. I had to slow down on this book because I did not want it to end. Andy's comatose thoughts were PERFECT Dalziel - funnylgarsweetunbelievably touching.

  • Brilliant. Surprising. Modern topics which concern the world today. I began with book 1, written 1970, loved its time setting language and the nittygritty of the tangled web we weave in british village community life, with the mystery and and menace of the population trying to hide its secrets, watch each other, including the dogged quiet determination of wheels and cogs turning in Dalziel and Pascoe's analytic and instinctive brains to find a solution while being part of that community. We coul [...]

  • While investigating reports of an armed person in a deserted part of town, Pascoe and Dalziel are caught in a big explosion - so big that the Fat Man is left comatose and in grave peril. Pascoe recovers quickly, though, and he is determined to discover who would dare do such a thing to Dalziel…. This very brief description of the plot of Reginald Hill’s "Death Comes for the Fat Man" just scratches the surface of the story; as this long-running series goes on, the reader notices more and more [...]

  • (Second book I've read in this series, and I'm looking forward to many more.)The crime is a local explosion that is apparently tied to war and terrorism -- but by whom? And to what end? The "hook" to this series is We spend a great deal of time in the minds of the savvy, unscrupulous, foul-mouthed lead, Andy Daziel, and his better-behaved junior officer Pascoe. But we also see the story through the eyes of the assorted suspects, police, friends, and family characters, all well drawn. I appreciat [...]

  • More of the excellent Dalziel and Pasco Yorkshire set mysteries. Funny with literary allusions. Hill is well educated and his language is what we want to see in a British mystery. This time, Dalziel is in a coma, but his consciousness is still floating about. Pasco is pissed and looking for the responsible party, a mysterious group of British vigilantes targeting Muslims. Ending is not that tidy with some loose ends suggesting leads to future books.

  • I had never read this series -- which began in 1973. Something the author Peter Robinson said in an interview in 2012 led me to look at the Daliel and Pascoe novels and I am glad I did! Although this is one of the last, sadly the author Reg Hill died, it was well plotted, had well-drawn characters, and raised interesting questions about lines we draw or erase depending on our circumstances.

  • Can there really be only two books left in this truly wonderful series?? Imagine life without Andy, Peter and Edgar? No? Either can I.

  • Come for the plot, stay for the characters. While the plot of this novel is somewhat interesting (and topical), dealing as it does with terrorist hideouts, counterterrorism units and East/West tensions, it is the characters that really make this novel. At the start of the book, Dalziel and Pascoe are caught in an explosion at a suspected terrorist house. Pascoe, being sheltered by Dalziel's massive bulk, gets off much more lightly than does Fat Andy, who spends most of the book hovering between [...]

  • It was better than I expected. Some English terms were lost on me, but I generally understood the slang.

  • Each of the novels in the series is different, but the tongue in cheek mood of Hill’s writing is present in almost everyone, and this is no exception. Dalziel might be in a deep coma but he cannot lie supine in his bed, he must fly over the book, by sheer size making Pascoe move in the right direction. So Peter takes this investigation in the bull like manner of Andy: by theft, lies, and every outrageous way one doesn’t expect of him. I was expecting to give the book a 5 and my reluctance wa [...]

  • Andy Dalziel (usually pronounced Dee-elle), a large English detective and Peter Pascoe, his better educated (and it's presumed, classically handsome) subordinate are two characters that Reginald Hill has used in a number of murder mysteries. He usually uses them in a way that allows him to make clever digs about class and education in the UK, while they solve crimes there.This book is slightly different. Dalziel is severely wounded (and spends the remainder of the book in intensive care) when an [...]

  • half way through. good beach reading. my prediction: it's gonna be the good guys who are the bad guysp. i'm done. and it was the good guys who were made to be the bad guys. I'm tired of this nonsense; we ought to get warning labels: Warning, a politically correct novel: all Moslems are good guys; all Christians/soldiers (whatever) are evil. Just tell me up front. Hill just got my last dollar. Note: it's not that there are not bad guys among us; there definitely are! it's helpful to remember that [...]

  • Reginald Hill is one of those authors who is always trying something new in his Dalziel and Pascoe mysteries -- most often in terms of structure. This 22nd novel in the series uses the parallel story structure of several previous entries in the series but the big innovation is sidelining his star, D.S. Andy Dalziel, comatose following a bomb blast soon after the beginning of the novel. This novel focuses on D.I. Peter Pascoe as he venture into the world of anti-terrorism, investigating the explo [...]

  • I could hardly put this one down. Several mystery writers have dealt with the current terrorism and anti-Islamic crisis. I suppose fiction flies under the radar, because nobody has denounced these varied viewpoints yet.Hill is always multi-faceted. Here we have second and third generation British Muslims, some of whom seem to have a distinctive British view of the Prophet. Then there is the whole range of human reaction, official and unofficial, to terrorist acts.At the center as always are Andy [...]

  • I first read this on 5 January 2008 and I had wanted to read again for some years but for some reason it was never available in the library. I felt that the author really hit his stride with this series in the 1980s and the stories got better and better until "On Beulah Height" in 1998. After that I felt his next few books tried to be a bit too clever and complicated but that this book was a real return to form as were the next two books in the series before his death. This is an exciting and of [...]

  • This is my third book by Reginald Hill. His books have lots and lots of characters. In reading this one, I actually kept track (on paper) of all the different characters as they were woven into the plot. Once again (as with others of Hill's books) the plot is quite complex. Even at the end, I had quite a time figuring out exactly who did what. This book is for those who really enjoy a good mystery, one with lots of characters who might have "done it." Andy Dalziel, the "Fat Man" of the title is [...]
