    REALLY a good writer….his Dalziel / Pascoe series is a police procedural series set in England….it ties in friends and family, and other events besides “just” murders……the series grows and develops as time passes.

    Can’t recommend it highly enough! Very funny at points, heartbreaking at others! Unfortunately Kindle has ONLY three of the Dalziel/ Pascoe series on Kindle (the books are all available on Amazon) which is just criminal considering some of the trash that IS on Kindle!
