Superintendent Dalziel had a somewhat cynical view of what college administrations spent his taxes on. But when he and that over-educated Sergeant of his, Pascoe, were sent to investigate a disinterred corpse at Holm Coultram College, he hadn't reckoned on a rash of fresh killings. While Pascoe rekindled an old flame on the staff, protesting students identified Dalziel as a "fascist pig." The Superintendent smiled with satisfaction…if that's how they wanted to play it.

Clever, amusing Brit policier, with many a sideswipe at academe. My first in the Dalziel/Pascoe series, and I look forward to reading the rest.

This is my first in this series , but it is actually the second book, with A Clubbable Woman being the first.I found the witty repartee between Dalziel and Pascoe to be quite entertaining. A dead body is found on the grounds of Holm Coltram College. After finding two more bodies within the academic confines, solving the case becomes more and more complex. Are all the murders connected to each other in some way?Filled with secrets, debauchery, and Dalziel's bad attitude, this book was a delight to read and I look forward to continuing with the series.
