Three old men shuffle off their mortal coil on the same chilly night. There seems at first to be nothing to connect their deaths to each other, much less to the sulferous whiffs of police corruption that are riding on the Yorkshire breeze. But trust Andy Dalziel's thick fingers to trace the links between all three of the elderly gents, the dirty cops, and a pheasant shoot.
