Book Description

Oct. 27 2009 Dalziel and Pascoe

“Reginald Hill is quite simply one of the best at work today.”

Boston Globe


There is no end to the praise mystery writer Reginald Hill has already earned for his British police procedurals featuring Chief Inspector Peter Pascoe and Detective Superintendent “Fat Andy” Dalziel. Having recently bested Harlan Coben, Val McDermid, Michael Connelly, and James Patterson for the Crime Writers Association’s Mystery and Thriller People’s Choice Dagger, the master returns with The Price of Butcher’s Meat—as a recuperating Andy Dalziel (following his close brush with mortality in Death Comes for the Fat Man) gets involved in the murderous politics of a not-so-peaceful seaside community. The Price of Butcher’s Meat is more “great stuff from one of the greats, and a true must for fans of British crime” (Denver Rocky Mountain News).

Product Details

Product Description

From the Back Cover

A bomb couldn't kill Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel—but his convalescence at the Avalon Clinic in the quaint seaside resort of Sandytown ("Home of the Healthy Holiday") just might. Sneaking out to the local pub provides Fat Andy with a bit of necessary diversion, allowing him a pint or two on the sly, plus an update on the world of trouble outside the clinic—including the very different plans of a pair of powerful landowners for putting Sandytown more prominently on the map. But when a rather macabre murder calls Chief Inspector Peter Pascoe onto the scene, Fat Andy realizes that Avalon itself is no sanctuary from the lethal secrets of the local elite—or from the death tide that now, suddenly, is rising quite rapidly.

4.0 out of 5 stars The price of butchers meat April 26 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It is time vendors such as Amazon learned to let us know the book has more than one title ! I bought A Cure for All Diseases by the same author only to find it is the same book but the European title ! The book is OK but not up to the usual P and D standard .

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard work Nov. 8 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love virtually everything Reginald Hill writes, but this book is the first of his that I actually gave up on. I think I got to around 100 pages and it was so boring that I gave up. Luckily I had borrowed it from the library and hadn't spent money on it. Nothing happened at all. Unusual for Reginald Hill. I was very disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please can I push Charlotte off a cliff? Feb. 4 2013
So, it is supposed to be an Austen spoof. All right then, but Miss Austen had a wonderfully clever, economical style. Reading this makes you realise how brilliant she was. Almost two hundred pages into any Austen novel, something substantial would be happening. I have trudged to page 180 and can bear no more of charley@whiffle.com. Hill warns us before the story begins that he may have run a little mad. Mad? How did he stay awake while writing it? Having given us to understand that Dalziel is a unique creation, he has created a Mini Me for him in Charlotte. I have patiently suffered the two of them whittering away without saying anything of interest for 180 pages!!. And who can picture Dalziel sitting in his room obediently talking his innermost thoughts into a recording gadget. He'd had met the suggestion with ripe language. Thank you everybody on Amazon.com for the reviews. I now face the thought that there are endless red herrings and dead ends to trudge through and several endings. It's not like me to throw in the towel, but you'd have to put a gun to my head to make me read on. Life is too short. Another 435 pages!! I'm told it picks up a little. It would have worked if Hill had used Austen's brilliant economic style, but after 180 pages of merely learning who is who, quite frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. (Oh, sorry, wrong book).
