Mystery stories by the Diamond Dagger–winning author, “one of the masters of the modern police procedural” (The Sunday Telegraph).
A man whose wife has been missing for a year gets some strange phone calls—as well as a visit from Detective Inspector Pascoe—in a novella that pays homage to Edgar Allan Poe.
A female journalist faces skepticism from the police when she reports an assault, and finds she may have to confront the attacker herself.
A family man wonders what sort of trouble the previous occupants of his new house were mixed up in—and finds some clues that were left behind in the move.
These stories—and four more—from the author of the series starring Inspector Peter Pascoe and Superintendent Andrew Dalziel take us on a tour of the shadowy corners of Yorkshire, England, from a stormy churchyard to a gloomy attic, with tales of lust, greed, envy, and, of course, murder.
