Storyline

What happened to little Mary? Eight years ago, the town was sure they knew: Benny, a boy with a metal plate in his head, who also disappeared. When another little girl is gone, Dalziel's squad investigates, but Pascoe is sidelined by his daughter's meningitis. Mary's bereaved family adopted Betsy (now called Elizabeth), who has become a well-known singer; she has come home to sing a requiem for Mary. Townspeople claim to have seen Benny; his aunt had a visitor asking about money close to her death; Betsy's fathers (birth and adopted) and even little Rose Pascoe are crucial witnesses.

D & P's best.
9 November 2007 | by bradjanetSee all my reviews

The saddest, best scripted and best acted offering in the "Dalziel and Pascoe" saga sees the two detectives investigating a long buried mystery which resonates tragically in the present ...a fine series at the top of its form, before it became top heavy when Warren Clarke became executive producer and excellent characters like Sgt. Wield were dropped in favour of more concentration on the Dalziel character.

The two Reginald Hill "D & P" novels that are crying out for a production, but which were strangely overlooked, were"Arms and the Woman", (possibly because the plot centres on Ellie, Pascoe's wife) and "Pictures of Perfection", (possibly because it concentrates on the character of Sgt. Wield ... also because it's a character piece where nothing much happens. It is my favourite of Hill's highly entertaining books).
