Four long novellas about Dalziel and Pascoe: "Fat Andy" Dalziel, the crude and wily Yorkshire su­per­in­ten­dent, and Peter Pascoe, the university-educated, much politer detective inspector. The stories include their first meeting and their last case, set in the future of 2010, in­ves­ti­gat­ing a murder on the moon. The stories are en­ter­tain­ing, combining decent plotting with good char­ac­ter­i­za­tion.
