Read full description of the books:
I really enjoy the Dalziel/Pascoe series but this book is not on the top of my list. It has pluses but the minuses got it a little lower rating than I usually give Hill's books.
First, the minuses: There is too much Pascoe and not enough Dalziel. Fat Andy is what gives this series such a great ambiance and in this story he is away at a conference in London. Toward the end, we get to be with him a bit more but it is his personality that makes the books so appealing. Second, there is too much Ellie Pasco, the uber liberal wife of Detective Pascoe. She is either walking picket lines or trying to convince her friends not to send their children to public schools (which in England is a private school). Her proselytizing gets very old very fast.
The pluses are that the storyline is very clever......the manager of a plant thinks one of his accountants is killing people for his own advancement in the company, although the deaths do not look like murder. Pascoe takes it pretty much with a grain of salt but promises to look into it. Then things begin to look interesting and some red herrings may not be as red as they formerly appeared. The second plus is the twist ending which is rather a surprise and (view spoiler)[ puts paid to the saying that crime doesn't pay and that criminals are always brought to justice. (hide spoiler)].
Good read but just not one of Hill's best of the series.
