Abstract:

An inheritance draws a shady long-lost relative out of hiding in "the most elaborate mystery in the Yorkshire series" (Kirkus Reviews). Reginald Hill "raised the classical British mystery to new heights" when he introduced pugnacious Yorkshire Det. Inspector Andrew Dalziel and his partner, the callow Sgt. Peter Pascoe (The New York Times Book Review). Their chafing differences in education, manners, technique, and temperament made them "the most remarkable duo in the annals of crime fiction" (Toronto Star). Adapted into a long-running hit show for the BBC, the Gold Dagger Award-winning series is now available as ebooks. Gwendoline Huby's passing has left her relatives more aggrieved than grieving. The wealthy and dotty widow has bequeathed the bulk of her fortune to her son, Alexander, missing in action since World War II. Then a stranger appears at the funeral claiming, against all odds, to be the phantom benefactor. Imposter or rightful heir' For Dalziel and Pascoe, a prickly situation is made even more so when Alexander is murdered. But when a second body turns up-this time in the CID's parking lot-the Yorkshire detectives can't fathom a connection. Until they dare to look a little deeper into the Hubys' family plot. Child's Play is the 9th book in the Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
