I'm a huge fan of Reginald Hill's Pascoe and Dalziel stories, but this collection of P&D short stories left me kind of scratching my head about what the author had got up to. There are two stories-in this collection of four-that are classic Pascoe and Dalziel. Pascoe has become a major police authority in the European Federal Police and Dalziel is working as a retired consultant. The big surprise here is that they are called to a crime scene on the surface of the moon.

Asking For The Moon book. These four short Dalziel/Pascoe mystery stories cover the beginning of their working relationship, two mysteries with "ghosts", and a murder on the moon reunion. Not to be missed by Dalziel/Pascoe fans, but one of the book length mysteries would be a better introduction to this series/these characters. Feb 17, 2013 Peter Hall rated it liked it.

We are like Rottentomatoes or Metacritic for books. We also do book giveaways. Reginald Hill is a native of Cumbria and former resident of Yorkshire, the setting for his novels featuring Superintendent Dalziel and DCI Pascoe, 'the best detective duo on the scene bar none' ('Daily Telegraph'). Their appearances have won him numerous awards including a CWA Gold Dagger and Lifetime Achievement award. They have also been adapted into a hugely popular BBC TV series.

Pascoe's Ghost finds the inspector investigating the fate of a woman who seems to have slipped out of the world, and hasn't been seen by a soul for a year-unless you count her brother, who claims her ghost is haunting him. Dalziel's Ghost sees the man who normally wouldn't be seen dead in a graveyard expressing a surprising interest in "the other side". One Small Step, looks to the future where murder on the moon requires the personal intervention of Commissioner Peter Pascoe... All four of these tales are told with the panache and ingenuity that has won Reginald Hill his reputation as probably the finest British crime writer of the modern era.

The alpha and omega of the Dalziel and Pascoe stories. This book of 4 short stories has two from a previous collection - Pascoe's Ghost and Dalziel's Ghost, so I was a bit disappointed to have purchased only two new stories; however, they were worth it ! The first story is the initial meeting - in not very good circumstances - of the characters. It was a treat to see how the relationship started. The last story in the book was written by Mr. Hill on the 20th anniversary of the first book in the series. He said he looked at the fact that 20 years had passed, but not for the characters, so he decided to write a story about what might have happened to them if time was passing at the same rate. He wrote the story in 1990 but set it in the then future of 2010. Space travel has not developed as he predicts, but the story of now Eurofed Commissioner Pascoe and retired Dalziel solving a murder on the moon is quite a neat tale. Well worth getting this book for just those two stories. If you have not read the other two in the previous short story collection ( Pascoe's Ghost and other tales ) they are both quite interesting as well.

I'm a huge fan of Reginald Hill's Pascoe and Dalziel stories, but this collection of P&D short stories left me kind of scratching my head about what the author had got up to. There are two stories--in this collection of four--that are classic Pascoe and Dalziel. In "Pascoe's Ghost" you get a zig-zag murder mystery with an homage by author Hill to Edgar Allan Poe. "Dalziel's Ghost" is a net full of red herrings that showcases the big man's mental agility and deviousness and his fondness for playing with partner Pascoe's mind.

The book's first story, "The Last National Service Man," is a comic masterpiece, and chronolgically, is early in the P&D partnership.

"One Small Step," the collection's closing story, projects the pair into the distant future. Pascoe has become a major police authority in the European Federal Police and Dalziel is working as a retired consultant. The big surprise here is that they are called to a crime scene on the surface of the moon. Picture the rhino-sized Dalziel in a space suit! There is some over-the-top humor laced into this story--Dalziel brings new meaning to the "mile-high club." But on the whole, I thought the story had a little too much fantasy and zig-zag to be credible.

There's a lot of fun in this collection and it serves as a good intro to Pascoe and Dalziel for those who haven't given them an earlier try.

I am saving this one. Five years from now I will read it again. That means something when you are talking books of this gender.

  • Qwert
Hill is marvelous, as always.

If you love Reginald Hill, you'll love this recording. These smaller stories add insight to his Dalziel and Pascoe novels.
