They'd moved everyone out of Dendale that long hot summer fifteen years ago. They needed a new reservoir and an old community seemed a cheap price to pay. They even dug up the dead and moved them too.But four inhabitants of the valley they couldn't move, for nobody knew where they were.

This was Andy Dalziel's worst case and now fifteen years on he looks set to relive it.It's another long hot summer. A child goes missing in the next valley, and old fears arise as someone sprays the deadly message on the wall of Danby: BENNY'S BACK!Music and myth mingle as the Mid-Yorkshire team delve into their pasts and into their own reserves of experience and endurance in search of answers which threaten to bring more pain than they resolve.… (més)

When a child goes missing, it reminds Dalziel of a similar case many years ago in the same locale. It's an interesting setting: a town has been evacuated and destroyed at the time of the old case to make way for a new dam. The residents were moved to a nearby village and though many still remain from the former case, the main suspect has disappeared long ago. Has he returned to commit another crime or is this new disappearance unrelated? ( )

The country village of Dendale is being evacuated prior to its valley being flooded for a new reservoir, but before that can happen, three young girls go missing and the primary suspect, Benny Lightfoot, disappears too. Fifteen years later, another girl goes missing in the village to which Dendale residents had been relocated, and somebody has written “Benny’s Back” around the region. Dalziel failed to solve the case fifteen years ago; can the parallels help him to solve this one now?....This is the seventeenth Dalziel and Pascoe novel, and a very fine addition to the series. Not only do we have the past and present crimes to solve, but we spend a great deal of time with Pascoe, who is full of rage and fear after his daughter Rosie contracts a very serious illness. There’s both professional and domestic strife, and a mystery that kept me guessing right up to the very end; recommended! ( )

Das kleine Dorf Dendale (bzw. das, was davon übriggeblieben ist), untergegangen in den Fluten eines Stausees zusammen mit dem Rätsel über drei verschwundene kleine Mädchen, taucht nach 15 Jahren nach einer langen Hitzeperiode wieder empor. Und mit ihm auch der damals verdächtige Benny? Graffity im benachbarten Ort Danby, wo die meisten der Bewohner Dendales nun leben, behaupten dies zumindest. Und als erneut ein kleines Mädchen verschwindet, scheint die Lage klar: Benny ist wieder da!
Superintendent Andrew Dalziel, der bereits mit dem Fall vor 15 Jahren beschäftigt war, macht seine damalige Erfolglosigkeit noch immer sehr zu schaffen ebenso wie vielen anderen seiner Kollegen. Es beginnt ein erneutes Hinterfragen der damaligen Vorgänge und scheinbar verheilte Wunden werden durch die neuen Untersuchungen wieder aufgerissen. Mit seinem unnachahmlichen Charme ('Ich denke, George...hat sein Gehirn über den Gesundheitsdienst bekommen, und jetzt wird's vom Immunsystem abgestoßen.') treibt Dalziel die Ermittlungen voran, um diese Fälle endlich zu klären.
Ein überaus fesselnder Krimi, der bemerkenswert unblutig daherkommt. Obwohl keinerlei Gewaltexzesse oder konkrete Bedrohungen beschrieben werden, steigt die düstere und angespannte Stimmung spürbar an. Hill gelingt es, den Druck und die Belastung, unter dem die Beamten wie auch die betroffenen Familien stehen, ebenso überzeugend darzustellen wie er bei Leserinnen und Lesern die Spannung erhöht, indem er sie auf die unterschiedlichsten Fährten führt. Als ob dies nicht schon mehr als genug wäre für eine gute Unterhaltung, lässt er seine Figuren über die wahren Werte des Lebens philosophieren und zeigt so ganz nebenbei, wie Menschen mit dem Verlust ihrer Heimat umgehen. All dies ist zudem noch in einem guten, leicht lesbaren und immer wieder auch amüsantem Stil verfasst, so dass man dieses Buch mit Fug und Recht als einen rundum gelungenenen Krimi bezeichnen kann.

Similar concept to Peter Robinson's In a Dry Season, handled very differently, though. Hill is really terrific at mixing high and low, comedic and the wrenchingly sad, and the ambiguous. His scope is . . . well, Shakespearean. Not the grand Shakespeare--more the Shakespeare of Henry IV. It is a tribute to Hill that he carries that scope so lightly and naturally. ( )

"On Beulah Height" is the first book I've read by Reginald Hill. I came across it almost by accident - through a swap on PaperBackSwap.com. Another member wanted to do a trade and I couldn't find anything on her shelf that I recognized, so I decided to take a chance on this book, based on its synopsis.

Wow! I am so glad I did. Hill's work epitomizes everything that is good about British mysteries: a small village, eccentric characters, wry humor, flawed, but brilliant detectives, suspenseful, but with little or no graphic descriptions of violence. British mystery writers seem to be able to describe a crime with as much as they don't say as with what they do.

I didn't see the resolution of the mystery coming, even though it was there in front if me all of the time. And in my opinion, this is a good thing! I find it irritating when a writer resolves a mystery by introducing information at the end of the story that we weren't privy to at least somewhere before in the story. However, when a writer resolves a story in such a way that you say to yourself, "how could I have missed that?" And you want to read the book all over again, just so you can fully appreciate the clues that you misinterpreted or completely missed before - well, that is an excellent mystery in my book!

Hill's work is reminiscent of that of other British mystery writers I've enjoyed, such as Robert Barnard and Michael Gilbert. "On Beulah Height" reminds me once again why it's so important to take a risk with an author I'm not familiar with. Before this book, I'd been somewhat stuck in my reading, I'd read several books that were good, but not remarkable, and I wondered when I was going to come across that next really good book. "On Beulah Heights" was it and I'm so thankful that there are another 23 books in the Dalziel and Pascoe series I now can look forward to reading! ( )
