An enjoyable Dalziel & Pascoe story, with liberal quantities of Emily Dickinson allusions, and a background that draws heavily on the Matrix Churchill ("Arms to Iraq") case of the 90s. The plot develops largely through a series of conflicting, tape-recorded witness statements.Interestingly, the BBC TV version of this story dropped the arms-dealing part of the story altogether, and replaced it with a more domestic scandal involving toxic waste - were they concerned about it hurting their overseas sales, I wonder?

Pal Maciver's body is found behind locked doors. The shotgun close by is obviously the weapon of choice. All signs SCREAM 'suicide' ... and that is what Detective (DCI) Peter Pascoe's boss wants him to list it as and close the case. However, Peter simply cannot bring himself to do so. ........................ Peter's boss, Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel, was the officer that investigated the 'suicide' of Pal's father ten years ago. Both Macivers died exactly the same way. Pal's stepmother and an arms dealer make it all murkier still. One thing Peter knows for sure: the answers could shatter the police department to its very foundation. ............................. **** A very good mystery, but the 'suicide behind locked doors' scenario has already been played to death. The author does manage to throw in a surprise or two though. If you are a fan of this series or simply enjoy a good mystery, I can certainly recommend this one. ****

A decade ago a man committed suicide in the Moscow House in Yorkshire. Now his son Pal Maciver kills himself in the same place in the same manner while his spouse Sue Lynn was playing patient-doctor in the bed of her lover Tom Lockridge. Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel and Detective Chief Inspector Peter Pascal head the inquiries into what is obvious, a locked door suicide......................... As the police investigate, Andy seems to be thinking with his wrong head as he appears to compromise the case by his relationship with Kay Kafta, widow of Maciver the father and stepmother to Maciver the son. Even stranger is that Andy led the inquiries into the father¿s suicide. As the international corporate world and government spies intersect the investigation, Peter worries that Andy is covering up the working of a killing feline due to desire for the merry widow....................... GOOD MORNING, MIDNIGHT is an entertaining Dalziel and Pascal police procedural more for their battling (seem like a married couple) than the actual investigation. Peter is very concerned that Andy has stepped over the ethics line to protect Kay and wonders if the DS did the same ten years ago. This is a terrific British cop series with the investigations always fun to follow, but this time especially pleasurable is when the lead couple fuss, fight, and fume.........................
