Reginald Hill

Reginald Hill is a native of Cumbria and a former resident of Yorkshire, the setting for his outstanding crime novels featuring Dalziel and Pascoe, 'the best detective duo on the scene bar none' (Daily Telegraph). His writing career began with the publication of A Clubbable Woman (1970), which introduced Chief Superintendent Andy Dalziel and DS Peter Pascoe. Their subsequent appearances, together with the adventures of Luton lathe operator turned PI Joe Sixsmith, have confirmed Hill's 'strong claim as our finest living male crime writer' (Sunday Telegraph)and won numerous awards, including the Crime Writers Association Cartier Diamond Dagger for his lifetime contribution to the genre.



Synopsis of this title

Sarah's heart bleeds for the troubles of the world - its violence, torture, poverty, famine.

Michael on the other hand prefers life as seen through the view-finders of his favourite film-directors. He dislikes suffering humanity in general and the other people on his Italian package holiday in particular. But circumstance and Sarah get him involved despite himself-with a battered wife, an Italian boy, a jealous husband, two Florentine whores, and a strange pair of drifters who join the group at Sarah's instigation.

In Venice things get worse with a near-drowning, a botched seduction, an accusation of poisoning, a beating-up, and Michael being questioned by the police about a murder and the films of Fred Astaire. More serious still are the questions Sarah is asking about their marriage. And by the end of the book she at least knows what real blood looks like.
