AN APRIL SHROUD - Reginald Hill
This is an early installment in the Dalziel and Pascoe series from 1987 with the majority of the story featuring the "Fatman " only.
This is very much like a Agatha Christie novel with all the events taking place at a country house where our hero finds himself stranded during flooding. Very much a 'who dunnit' and great fun.
The standard of dialogue and humour is of the usual high standard with a high body count and Dalziel managing to get the girl ,for a while anyway.
