GOOD MORNING MIDNIGHT - REGINALD HILL

The popular series featuring Yorkshire police officers Andy Dalziel and Peter Pascoe returns in this latest installment.  Some ten years ago, family members discovered the body of the head of the family - to all appearances dead by suicide - having  hooked one of his toes around the trigger of a shot gun.

Now in a grisly scene of deja vu, the body of his only son is discovered in the same room, dead under the same circumstances, with the same music playing on the phonograph and the same book of poetry open on the desk.  Pascoe's curiosity is aroused when Dalziel seems overly eager to declare the case and open and shut suicide.

An intriguing and numerous cast of characters inhabit the story - with incest, adultery, sexual obsession, chronic illnesses, unresolved grief and disinheritance plaguing the dead man's extended family, while the multinational corporation owned by family members is involved in the worst kind of international double dealing.

Two other enigmatic deaths occurring in far off places bracket the story.  The reader must absorb the full horror of the nature of these two deaths - the characters in GOOD MORNING, MIDNIGHT will remain unaware.

A compelling read by one of the best authors around!
