British Mystery

Finished Dec 3
Midnight Fugue by Reginald Hill
Dalziel has come back to work, although there is some concern whether he is ready to be back, even by himself. When he gets up one morning to go off to his first case review meeting, he gets sidetracked and is approached by Gina Wolfe, in search of help regarding her missing husband. Gina has been sent to Dalziel by her fiance, a policeman Dalziel met years earlier.
What starts off as a favor by Dalziel turns into a murder case and the reasons started many years before. There is a lot going on here, but Hill manages to meld things together wonderfully. As we move back and forth between the different characters, we watch to see motives, mistakes, and methods. Once I got into this I stayed up past my bedtime to finish it.
