Reginald Hill, who The New York Times says "has raised the classical mystery to new heights," returns with The Wood Beyond, a textured and psychologically intricate mystery featuring crude Inspector Dalziel and sensitive Inspector Pascoe. Dalziel, Pascoe, and Wield, their sergeant, are called in to investigate the discovery of some very old bones that were found in a pit near a large pharmaceutical research laboratory, where an animal rights group is protesting.  While they begin to investigate this bizarre unearthing, Pascoe discovers some startling information about his grandfather, a Yorkshire soldier during World War I. As he pursues this eighty-year-old mystery, the current investigation continues, until both cases converge in a stunning and unforgettable climax.

A flat out great novel. Not to be missed. Hill's next great novel in the Dalzeil Pasco, Wield series, On Buelah Heights, follows.

Thereafter, Hill and the series veers increasingly off the track until Death Comes For The Fatman finally begins to redeem it. Hill simply writes far too much for any six human beings.

Easily the finest ensemble style series in all of crime fiction.
