A Dalziel and Pascoe Novel
When Detective-Superintendent Andy Dalziel witnesses a murder across the street from his own back garden, he's sure he knows who the culprit is. But is he mistaken? Peter Pascoe thinks so. Dalziel senses the doubters around him. To make matters worse, he's being pestered by an anonymous letter-writer, threatening suicide.
Meanwhile, the effervescent Eileen Chung is directing the Mystery Plays. And she has Dalziel in mind for the role of God. He shouldn't have too much difficulty acting the part.
