What kind of place is this to work in? In normal conditions I mean. It's a funny atmosphere surface. But lots of oddities. We're very isolated for a start and instead of improving on lines of communication with the university, socially and administratively I mean, there's been a kind of contraction into an even tighter little circle. Or groups of little circles. For instance?' asked Pascoe in his turn sipping his coffee.

An Advancement of Learning is Reginald Hill's second Dalziel and Pascoe novel, first published in 1971. Written in 1971 it is very much a book of its time. I read it quickly, as the two detectives uncover plenty of disagreements and power struggles in both the staff and student bodies – from rivalries to revelries on the beach, and more dead bodies turn up before the mystery is solved. And reading it has made me keen to get on the next book in the series, Ruling Passion, which I’ve started almost straight away!

"An Advancement of Learning" is the second Dalziel and Pasco mystery republished under the terrific Felony and Mayhem label. The revival of these early classics is a major service to readers who can't get enough of the D&P duo and other excellent mysteries from the 70s and 80s.

"An Advancement of Learning" takes the intrepid detectives to a small English college to investigate the appearance of a body that turns up when a campus monument is moved. The uncovered corpse turns out to be that of woman memorialized by the sculpture under which it had been resting for several years. With that novel beginning, the story moves on to explore the complex characters and relationships of the faculty members and antics of the student body. The latter component of the story feels a little dated--the book was written in 1971--but otherwise, the plot is intricate enough to provide a very entertaining read.

The Dalziel/Pascoe relationship was already well established by author Reginald Hill at this early date and their prickly but productive interaction is, as always, more than half of the reading fun. There are a number of other broadly defined characters here that bring piquancy to the book, including the appearance of Ellie Soper--lusty, outspoken and beautiful--who will eventually become Pascoe's wife and figure in several future books.

This is an excellent read that suffers only slightly from its 38-year old context. Well worth the money and time.
As always, Reginald Hill fills his stories with interesting subplots as well as thoroughly strong plot lines. I find it hard to put the book down once
I am into the story.
I am reading all of this series from the first to the end. Enjoy Reginald Hill's writing. This particular book has a plethora of characters and two plots going on, but still very enjoyable.
Witty, very well written,for a change, great sense of humor and comments on actuality. Interesting personages. good plot scenario.and unfolding of it. This is my first book -introduction from this author. I really enjoyed the reading. Will read more of this man.
This is a very well-written detective murder mystery with a surprise ending. The dialog is realistic, and the plot is believable. I enjoyed it very much.
This tv show pretty much follows the sequences of the book. However, there are some dry spots in the book that are confusing and seem to be off the track of the murder and more involved in the personnels personal issues. Had I not watched the tv show I would have been a little lost and some the details. Ellie is introduced for the first time, even though her and Pascoe had known each other in the past and she's not really a nice person, I really like the TV's "Ellie" better than the book charactor. Hopefully this will change.
An interesting mystery coupled with Dalziel being out of his environment surely entertains. Pascoe's re-encountering Ellie gives us a new peek into his future.
Reginald Hill is the master of mystery novels. We have read almost all the Dalziel & Pascoe series, and a few of Hill's other novels. They're all excellent, engaging, with character development that is outstanding. Want a good read?
