Baker & Taylor While investigating the seemingly unrelated death of a motorist and a motorcyclist, Dalziel and Pascoe soon become pawns in the twisted game of a clever sociopath known as the Wordman who submits Dialogues and other literary clues after he murders his victims.
Blackwell North Amer In the Beginning was the Word...And the Word was Murder. A motorist dies after plunging off a bridge...A motorcyclist is found dead after a fatal encounter with a tree. Two apparently innocuous tragedies...until two Dialogues are submitted to a local literary competition, claiming responsibility for the deaths. But has anybody heard the Word? When a beautiful, unscrupulous journalist meets her Maker in fact, and then in fiction, as victim of The Third Dialogue, Dalziel and Pascoe take note and find themselves involved in a deadly duel of wits against an opponent known only as the Wordman: a brilliant sociopath who leaves literary clues in his wake...and who hides in plain sight. Contestants, are you ready?
