An innocent man is on the run in a Hitchcockian psychological thriller by the author of the outstanding Dalziel and Pascoe mysteries (The New York Times). Best known for his Dalziel and Pascoe novels, which were adapted into a hit BBC series, Reginald Hill proves himself to be a master o. .Taking a break from a sour marriage and a bitter wife, Harry Bentink is looking forward to the long-needed respite.

Fell of Dark" is a non-Pascoe and Dalziel, one off crime story. Basically, the tale of a man wrongfully accused of the double murder of two young women that occurs on a hiking trail that the protagonist and a friend have been following in the north of England. The accused man panics during a police interrogation and takes off cross-country to evade the trailing cops. Bearing in mind that it was written by the incomparable Reginald Hill and carries the hallmarks of clear prose and introspective characters, the premise that an innocent, rational and respectable upper-class businessman would attempt a getaway from the cops just doesn't hold much water.

Set in his native Cumberland, this was Reginald Hill's very first novel and its cleverly interwoven strands of dete. Then two girls are found murdered in the high fells, and suddenly there's no doubt about it. He's running.

"Fell of Dark" is a non-Pascoe and Dalziel, one off crime story. Basically, the tale of a man wrongfully accused of the double murder of two young women that occurs on a hiking trail that the protagonist and a friend have been following in the north of England. The accused man panics during a police interrogation and takes off cross-country to evade the trailing cops. Eventually, this evasion evolves into an attempt to find the true killer(s).

I found the storyline to be a bit much to accept. Bearing in mind that it was written by the incomparable Reginald Hill and carries the hallmarks of clear prose and introspective characters, the premise that an innocent, rational and respectable upper-class businessman would attempt a getaway from the cops just doesn't hold much water. His impulse is just to get away from an accusation, even though he knows that there is no real long-term refuge possible. Running parallel to the main murder/escape storyline is the protagonist's internal agonizing over the state of his marriage. His wife eventually becomes part of the escape, but their relationship remains a puzzle to the reader by book's end.

I'm a huge Reg Hill fan and mourn his passing like crazy. He was a terrific writer of both crime and straight fiction. But even with its flashes of very fine writing, "Fell of Dark" is not one of his better books. I read it mainly because I have gone through 95 percent of Hill's work and needed a fix.

Reginald Hill is one of my favorite mystery writers. I read this a while ago and liked it. Hill is an excellent writer. His voice is consistent and the characters are interesting. I recommend all of his novels, especially the Dalziel/Pascoe series.
