From Internationally bestselling and Diamond Dagger award-winning mystery author Reginald Hill, "A master of the British police procedural" (Tampa Tribune), comes a riveting novel of suspense featuring Yorkshire cops Andy Dalziel and Peter Pascoe
Andy Dalziel, back at work after a long convalescence, is finding it harder to get back in the swing than he anticipated. It doesn’t help when he manages to skip a day and sets out for a Monday morning meeting on Sunday. So when old acquaintance Commander Mick Purdy of the Met asks him to help Gina Wolfe, who has come to Mid-Yorkshire in search of a husband missing for seven years, he is glad of what seems like a harmless diversion to get his hand back in.
But things soon start getting serious. Gina’s husband was a DI under strain after the death of their young daughter and under suspicion after serious leaks from a case he was working. Is he in fugue, or is he in flight? Or was he simply removed from command by the subject of the enquiry, entrepreneur Goldie Gidman, who has worked his way up from East End loan shark to City financier. A major political contributor and father to a rising young MP, Gidman himself is under the scrutiny of a left-wing tabloid journalist. And up in Yorkshire, Gina is being shadowed by two ruthless henchman from Gidman’s past.
Taking place within the space of a single October Sunday and alternating between mid-Yorkshire and London, Midnight Fugue is a complex, action-packed, page-turning story that builds to a dramatic conclusion and one last surprise.
