Title: Underworld (The Dalziel and Pascoe Mysteries Book 10) Author(s): Reginald Hill Publisher: MysteriousPress.

'Hill is an instinctive and complete novelist who is blessed with a spontaneous storytelling gift' Frances Fyfield, Mail on Sunday When young Tracey Pedley vanished in the woods around Burrthorpe, the close-knit community had their own ideas about what had happened, but Deputy Chief Constable Watmough has it down as the work of a child-killer who has since committed suicide -- though others wondered about the last man to see her alive and his fatal plunge into the disused mine shaft. Returning to a town he left in anger, Colin Farr's homecoming is ready for trouble, and when a university course brings him into contact with Ellie Pascoe, trouble starts! Meanwhile Andy Daziel mutters imprecations on the sidelines, until a murder in Burrthorpe mine forces him to take action that brings him up against a hostile and frightened community!

A mystery remains in a Yorkshire mining town. Several years ago, a young child, Tracey Pedley was killed, and a miner, Billy Farr, who treated her as his own, was the last to see her alive. He is now dead under mysterious circumstances, as is another man, a salesman who confessed to two child killings, and committed suicide.

Now, Billy's son, Colin, has returned home from the sea, and taken a job in the mines. He wants to restore Billy's reputation. Sometimes violent and hot tempered, he has enemies in the town, including his supervisor, and was thrown over by his fiance foe another, more sedate man, but makes friends with Ellie,the wife of Peter Pascoe, a policeman who partners with his Deputy-Superintendent, a jovial fat man named Dalziel. There are conflicts among the police, too. A retired officer, disappointed professionally and politically, is telling tales of police work to the press, and has always disliked Dalziel, who in turn, thinks little of him.

While a mystery, Underworld is at its heart a series of character studies and human responses under varying circumstances. It is a time of social change and personal upheaval. This is a very well written and interesting tale, with as a bonus, an unusual and inventive way in which various killings, including the little girl's, are revealed.

"Under World" is another great story from Reginald Hill, who once again gives his story's characters depth and complexity that match the book's creative story line. "Under World" is set in a small coal mining town in the north of England where the drama of the book is preceded by a series of child abductions and killings. The town has been sitting on many family secrets connected to those crimes for years when a prodigal son--a wild and violent adonis--returns after years away and brings the community's accumulated poisons to the surface. The intrepid detective team of Dalziel and Pascoe are dragged into the ensuing explosions both professionally and personally as the younger detective's academic wife becomes irrationally attracted to the prodigal.
Some of the book's action takes place underground in the mines, but this is mostly a story about what's happening below the surface of the lives of the town's population. Both contexts provide some mild claustrophobia to the reader, but just enough to make the novel interesting. An excellent read.

Reginald Hill is in top form in the little-reviewed and under-appreciated UNDER WORLD. Most of the action is set in and around Burrthorpe, a small mining town suffering from a siege mentality. The Dickensian citizens of Burrthorpe are battling both economic and social depression, caused by declining revenues from coal and the murder of a young girl and the suicide of her suspected killer. We know instinctively that the bodies are buried in the underworld tunnels of the coal pit. But this an alien world for all outsiders, and, if Pascoe and Dalziel go there, what are the chances they can find their way out? Meanwhile, Ellie Pascoe is at the edge of a different sort of pit herself. Her passions have been stirred by one of her students, the charismatic, devil-may-care Colin Farr. She's been tempted by his kisses, but will she sink to adultery and forever blacken her relationship with Peter and Rosie?
