Pequena biografia
Hill was born to a "very ordinary" working-class family—his father was a professional footballer long before sportsmen earned riches—but began reading young. His mother was a great fan of Golden-Age crime writers, and he discovered the genre while fetching her library-books. After National Service (1955–57) and studying English at St Catherine's College, Oxford University (1957–60) he worked as a teacher for many years, rising to Senior Lecturer at Doncaster College of Education. In 1980 he retired from salaried work in order to devote himself full-time to writing.

Resenhas

The plot cleverly weaves the strand of two separate stories, an Australian girl trying to find out what happened to her grandmother decades ago and a Spanish would be priest with a centuries old secret to uncover. While I found the Sam character to be not particularly likable, everything was well plotted and it was an interesting and enjoyable read

The first in the series but already shows signs of good things to come. The characters are sufficiently developed to provide interest , the victim and relatives even more so than the detectives. The plot builds gradually with small twists or herrings. Will definitely find more of the series to try.

Although some of the earlier Dalziel and Pascoe books can contain some cringey sexism, this installment was bearable. The main story is that three elderly men have died under suspicious circumstances and it seems like too much of a coincidence. Having three crimes to investigate allows for some freshness in the pacing, shifting from one story to another, and there are some highly relevant ponderings from various characters about aging and mortality.

Chief Superintendent Andy Dalziel and PC Peter Pascoe are sent to Holm Coultrain College to investigate the red-haired skeleton unearthed on campus.

A bronze memorial sculpture was being relocated to make room for a lab facility. When the base was pulled up bones fell out of it. This did not set well with a number of people.

There were conflicts among the faculty and among the student body. Originally an all-female campus (students and faculty), changes had been made. To keep up with the times, it was decided to change to a mixed campus, to help bring in more money for expansion. The old guard of the faculty was against it.

Among the student body was Franny Roote, well dressed, good looking, smooth moves and quite a following among the students, especially the females. What is his draw?

Talk of a Satan cult on campus, with faculty and student members, séances, and mid-night rituals cloaked in secrecy, are rumoured. Could there be ties to the skeleton?

Who is the skeleton? When was the death and by who and how? Other murders take place on campus and questions arise about the relationship between these happenings.

Dalziel and Pasco have a full slate of clues and suspect to tie into for the solutions. Twists, turns and blind alleys make for a complicated challenge for these men. Also a good read for the reader.
