‘These novels last, like a grand malt whisky – rounded, rich, intoxicating … Here is an author at his formidable best’ Frances Hegarty, Mail on Sunday
They moved everyone that long hot summer. Didn’t matter that your family had lived and worked and died in Dendale for centuries, they needed a new reservoir, and an old community seemed a cheap price to pay. They even dug the dead up out of the churchyard and moved them, too. But four inhabitants of the valley they couldn’t move, for nobody knew where they were. Benny Lightfoot and the three little girls he was suspected of abducting.
Fifteen years have passed. It’s another long hot summer, and as the thirsty sun brings all the old stones of Dendale village back into the light of day, another girl disappears and across the parapet of an old railway bridge someone sprays the words: BENNY’S BACK!
Old griefs and fears are resurrected, and for Andy Dalziel old guilt, too, as the case that got away comes back to haunt him. Peter Pascoe, watching his own young daughter fight for life, faces the unbearable reality of losing a child. But there are lights along the dark way, as Sergeant Wield tries to bring his partner to terms with a growing menagerie, as WDC Novello tries to impress her masters without compromising her feminist principles, and as PC Hector, Mid-Yorkshire’s contribution to the Care-in-the-Community programme, stamps his own indelible mark on the investigation.

‘Hill is among the most entertaining and invigorating detective novelists writing at present’
London Review of Books
Reginald Hill was born and brought up in Cumbria, and has returned there after many years in Yorkshire. With his first crime novel, A Clubbable Woman, he was hailed as ‘the crime novel’s best hope’ and twenty years on he has more than fulfilled that prophecy.
