Review Text

This second case for Yorkshire's Supt. Dalziel and Inspector Pascoe is just as snappily written as their American debut (Ruling Passion, 1977). But Hill stuffs in a few too many kinky secrets here, however tastefully he may handle them. Pascoe has reason to suspect that a local porno-film company is really making "muff" films - in which an unsuspecting actress is actually killed on screen. The only copy of the film in question disappears in a theater fire, the cinema proprietor murdered in the bargain. Meanwhile, Pascoe's dentist is accused of impregnating a teenage patient, but adultery and teen sex are the least of the domestic licentiousness to be revealed - some of it involving raunchy senior citizens. Undeniably lively doings, with foul, fat Dalziel and lean, dour Pascoe (his liberated wife is a mixed blessing) still a truly abrasive team. Yet, with a new kink on every page, there's no time to focus on the cops, the seedy local color, or anything in particular - making Hill #2 more readable than memorable. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
