Dalziel is disgusted by college life...
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 13, 2022
Superintendent Daziel and sergeant Pascoe are dispatched to a small college to investigate the finding of a skeleton. It appeared under a large cement base when an eight-foot tall bronze statue was moved.
As they work to identify the victim, Dalziel grows more and more disgusted with the student body. They engage in foolish demonstrations. They’re disrespectful and uncooperative. They dance naked on the beach late at night. The teachers are an odd bunch too, always bickering among themselves.
Dalziel and Pascoe have made no progress, when a naked woman student is found murdered among the dunes. The plot of this police procedural is quite eventful. Both policemen get quite battered, and Pascoe has some delightful overnights with an old girlfriend.
I enjoy fat Dalziel and handsome Pascoe as a team, although the solution of the crimes in this case isn’t exactly straightforward. But I’ll definitely continue with the series.
