    1. To begin with, I have one confession and one warning. Reginald Hill is my absolute favourite author. I could read his shopping list and rave about it, so I have no pretence here of objectivity.Now the warning. If you have yet to read Reginald Hill’s DEATH OF DALZIEL (published in the U.S.A. under the title Death Comes for the Fat Man) then stop right now. Don’t read any further, because it is impossible to write a review of A CURE FOR ALL DISEASES without creating a spoiler for Hill’s prev [...]

    2. One of my favorite British mystery series is Dalziel and Pascoe and this one does not disappoint. In the book immediately preceding this one, Dalziel is almost killed by a terrorist bomb. But it appears nothing can kill Fat Andy, so this book begins as he is a patient in a rehabilitation center, recovering from his injuries. The author uses a little different format for this series entry as it is written in the form of e-mails and taped conversations, interspersed with regular narrative. At firs [...]

    3. 3.5Part epistolary novel [in emails] owing more to Agatha Christie than to Jane Austen, with far too many characters and an entertaing, convoluted plot. Had Hill divided the cast in half and then in half again, we could have come to know the characters [BIG SPOILER] (view spoiler)[ and not had that 'huh' moment at the end when the killer that we hardly know at all is revealed. (hide spoiler)]In spite of its surplus of potential culprits and creaky resolution, I enjoyed the heck out of this book [...]

    4. The author has taken the last unfinished novel of Jane Austen (Sandition) and set it in 21st century England. Instead of local gentry, sea cures and bathing machines, we find local gentry and development and planning to make "Sandytown" the capital of the healthy holiday.Hill follows Austen conventions to a point - the heroine finds true love, but the main business of the novel is murder and its investigation by Daziel and Pascoe. The novel contains its usual facsinating insights into character [...]

    5. Just finished this, and, well, as usual I'm elated at having found another good Dalziel/Pascoe and sad that this one's over. Unlike some writers (coughMarthaGrimescough), Hill hasn't gotten stale. He's even changed his writing style and pacing, so the books aren't formulaic. This one is almost epistolary (e-mail and digital recordings rather than actual letters) and while I suspected the actual culprit, it wasn't until the end that I knew or did I? This isn't a clean/tidy solution case, it's got [...]

    6. This book picks up where Death come for the Fat Man left off. I enjoyed the variety of ways the story unfolded; as emails, transcripts of recordings, and basic narrative. There were lots of twists and turns, and they were resolved satisfactorily in the end. Reginald Hill is a great writer.

    7. This is my night read from 11:30PM - around 1:00AM. I often wake up at three and do some owl reading as well. The book suits this light but engaging and wonderful peek into English mystery.

    8. A bit long, but certainly not slow, Hill's modern murder mystery take on Austen's Sanditon takes liberties but doesn't mock the original, even if the best parts for me were at the very beginning. The character of Charley and her gossipy emails to her sister were pure reading joy, likewise the lovely Tom Parker and his daughter Minnie. Some plot bits were a stretch and I'd have enjoyed much more Diana Parker but the beauty and humor made this a four-star book. I'm not sure if I'll try out the res [...]

    9. I seem to be giving a lot of books a 4 star rating lately. Maybe I'm feeling generous, maybe I've just been reading a lot of good books. If you have never read a Reginald Hill book, don't start with this one. This is the 23rd book in the series and relationships develop along the way and there is quite a lot of references to earlier books. The other problem with the book (discounting the fact that it's 500 pages long) is that about half of the book is told through a major character emailing her [...]

    10. This episode in the Dalziel and Pascoe series is a clever update of an ancient plot. Lady Daphne Denham is so annoying that when she turns up dead, it is hard to find anyone who doesn’t have a motive. The murder takes place in the burgeoning health resort of Sandytown where Det. Supt. Dalziel is recovering from the wounds acquired in a terrorist attack in the previous book. The psychologist in charge of his case has given him a digital recorder and part of the fun of the novel is hearing event [...]

    11. After about 50 pages, I couldn't get into this book and didn't see myself getting into it within another 50 pages or so (100 pages being my normal predictor of whether I'll be able to finish a book or not). The writing style just really bugged me, particularly the chapters that were written in email format. Those chapters were written in a real life kind of way, complete with misspellings, incomplete sentences, random abbreviations, and in general, the way that a lot of people talk, I suppose. B [...]

    12. For parts of the book, the author uses the literary contrivance of showing his readers e-mail messages sent from a young lady in Yorkshire to her sister who is working as a nurse in Africa. It reads like Young Adult romance fiction with a measure of gossip. I found it unappealing.No crime is committed until 165 pages into a 477-page book. I almost quit reading the story before I got that far. It was very dull and boring. The ending is unsatisfying. The author seems to be experimenting with diffe [...]

    13. If you're looking for a light read that you can pick up at any time, this is a good choice. If you're looking for an intelligent and fascinating storyline that keeps you on the edge of your seat, keep looking. Hill tries to utilize a disjointed, postmodern style of writing to tell the story from the point of view of Charlotte. This style can be used very effectively (see Douglas Coupland's JPod), but can also be obnoxious (see this text). Never before have I read a paragraph containing nearly tw [...]

    14. This was a slow starter and it is part of a series of books. It did get rather good toward the end as the pace picked up. HOWEVER, there were TOO many twists and turns of plot, prompting me to flip frantically back and forth between pages to see which character I had missed at a crucial placement. Turns out that three with the same last name was just too much, it all blurs at that bit. I may read another by this author, but not for a while. I enjoy a slower revelation, rather than everything all [...]

    15. This was fine, not nearly as good as his best. I literally skipped the first 160 pages or so (up til the second part) because the fonts types and stylized email writing were nearly impossible to read. You can get away with bad grammer and punctuation in an email because they are short. Ten page 'emails' with no punctuation are nearly unreadable and certainly annoying. Skipping this many pages did not affect my ability to read the rest of the mystery, which I feel backs me up on my assertion that [...]

    16. Dalziel returns from the dead to insert himself, not strictly speaking as a detective, but an irascible convalescent bystander, into Pascoe's investigation. With a Christie-esque set of characters at a barbecue where the victim is offed, and the reappearance of one of Andy's favourite bête noires, this brilliant series continues with the same earthy Yorkshire humour as ever.

    17. Of the many Reginald Hill books I have read this is my least favorite. Dalziel is even more crude in his thoughts than his spoken word if such can be imagined. The first time reader would find Pascoe colorless.

    18. I love Reginald Hill, despite the fact that he's been becoming more and more fanciful lately. But still. This one is OK, but way too long (you get a sense that he really likes his characters and has a hard time giving them up). The mystery is not particularly compelling, but OK.

    19. While Superintendent Andy Dalziel is convalescing at a health resort in coastal Sandytown, DCI Peter Pascoe is in charge, and he’s finding that he likes that role quite a bit. When one of the primary movers and shakers in Sandytown is strangled and gruesomely roasted, Pascoe has the opportunity to shine; but Dalziel, starting to feel better, wants to get in on the action too, with potentially disastrous results…. I don’t want to say much about the plot of "A Cure for All Diseases," the 23r [...]

    20. (My first book read in this excellent series.)Takes the English "cozy" mystery and ramps it up quite a bit. There's a grouchy reprobate recovering from injury, a young Brit in her 20's is eyeing the local horseflesh, and there is of course a veddy veddy British Grande Dame who is lady of the manor. Add in various local color, medical personnel, alternative health specialists, real estate schemes, and various poor-but-attractive relations and you've got a tasty stew. The interactions and antics o [...]

    21. A big fan of some of Reginal Hill's books though generally a far lesser fan of the Dalziel and Pascoe series. I remain to be convinced about them. And this one might just have put me off for life. I just did not get it. Couldn't get on with the email-speak chapters. After 3 or 4 chapters i still couldn't spot the story. So i gave up. Life is too short for confusing books. So glad i borrowed from a library and didn't waste money on.

    22. Pascoe is taking over as Dazliel convalescences after nearly dying in the last book. Murder brings the detectives of Mid Yorkshire back together for their penultimate case. Andy is in fine form but Peter misses the mark as the weight of leading proves too much. The book is overlong by about a third and it makes the reader nostalgic for Reg Hill’s earlier and tighter writing.

    23. well I read it and it was quite e.ntertaining in an undemanding sort of way but there are an awful lot of words for not much reward was one of a pile I was given so I don't feel cheated but I would if I'd bought it!

    24. One of the best in this excellent series. Just don't start with this one if you're new to Dalziel & Pascoe -- continuation of a long running backstory and relationship is a big part of what makes this book so enjoyable.

    25. A slow start to this book with a very detailed build up of characters.Thought I was not going to like the email/ recorded narrative but soon settled into it.Easy to read but quite complex in plot , amusing too A great read .

    26. This book is about 200 pages too long. compared to previous Dalziel books it simply doesn't make the grade. It is boring.

    27. read for Jane Austen book club;really enjoyable romp, particularly with Austen Sanditon references; author was a Janeite. and introduced here to a delightful detective.

    28. This new Dalziel/Pascoe mystery by Reginald Hill takes Supt. Andy Dalziel (pronounced DeeEll), who's convalescing from the bomb that put him in a coma in the last book, to Avalon Convalescent Home in Sandytown, a sleepy little coastal village in Yorkshire. Sandytown is a coming place what with the Avalon hospital facilities, a new hotel and healthful sea air. Members of the leading families, the Hollises, the Parkers and the Denhams, hope that attracting alternative medical practitioners such as [...]
