"When we last heard from Superintendent Dalziel (aka The Fat Man), he had suffered serious injuries from a terrorist bomb blast. Now he's convalescing in Sandytown, a seaside resort. But a murder is committed, and DCI Peter Pascoe is called in to investigate. The Fat Man, though officially off duty, finds a way to involve himself in the case. Jonathan Keeble voices Dalziel with a deep, gravelly voice and a thick Yorkshire accent. He is less successful with the other voices, especially the female characters--one of which, Charlotte Heywood, plays a prominent part through emails to her sister. Still, Keeble delivers the humorous parts perfectly, and the tone and tempo match the writing. Fans of the series will especially enjoy this. S.S.R. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
