Product description

Product Description

The brand-new Bill Slider Mystery - David Rogers was a doctor, handsome, charming and rich. He lived the lifestyle of a consultant – expensive clothes, top restaurants, exclusive clubs – until someone killed him in the hallway of his lovely million-plus-pound house. But when Bill Slider and his firm are thrown into the mystery, they soon discover that nothing is as it seems, for though David’s girlfriends are plenty, none of them can tell Slider anything about where he worked or what exactly he did . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Ha! 1 March 2017

I knew from the first time he was mentioned who the bad guy was. Took Slider and company a great deal longer to figure it out. As per usual, though, the author didn't give full disclosure till the last few pages. That's okay. It was a good story and carried one along. I'm so glad I found Harrod-Eagles. None of my favorite authors have a book coming out any time soon, so I would have been desperate for something good to read. Slider definitely fills the bill!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent police procedural, wonderful characters; a pure pleasure to read 11 July 2011
By L. J. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com

First Sentence: "You look terrible," Slider said as Atherton slid into the car.

Inspector Bill Slider and his team are investigating the murder of David Rogers, shot in his home at point blank range by someone with a silencer. Everything about him indicates he has considerable money, except his bank statement. Yet, the crime doesn't appear to be one of passion or of robbery. With very little evidence, few clues, and no obvious motive, the police are having a difficult time finding the killer. Does the answer lie with one of the many women in Roger's life, with his past or with his shadowy job? The deeper they go into the investigation, the bigger and more complex the case becomes

Reading Cynthia Harrod-Eagles is pure joy. Her love of language is evident on every page as exemplified by her dialogue, wry humor and evocative descriptions..."a well-dressed elderly couple, so tiny and immaculate they could have earned spare cash standing around on wedding cakes." There are hunger-inspiring descriptions of food, from the grab-and-go to a particularly delicious dinner.

Each of the characters is fully-fleshed out and the relationships realistic. It is so refreshing that the protagonists have normal, stable lives and aren't angst-driven or alcoholic, yet there is nothing cloying about the way in which they are presented.

American readers may not be familiar with some of the terms or expressions, yet these are British police who use British vernacular. The meaning of those expressions that may not be known to the American audience can easily be gleaned for their context and add to the veracity of the story.

The plot is developed bit-by-bit from a single murder to something unexpected. This is a serious crime which becomes more serious as the story progresses. At the same time, it is presented in the manner of a traditional mystery in that overt violence is left off-stage. The case is investigated by a team using procedure and following the clues; no tricks but a few very effective red herrings, no sudden revelations. At the same time, it was interesting to learn that, in Britain, one can rent a gun from a dealer for a day. It's that information and attention to detail which greatly enhance the story.

Most of all, I come back to the use of language. There are subtle puns, visual similes and metaphors, and the most wonderful malaprops which are attributable to one of the characters. The cleverest part is that the other characters are so accustomed to them, they are commented on only once and you feel that is more for the sake of the reader.

"Body Line" is an excellent, traditional police procedural with wonderful characters and a very well-constructed plot that is pure pleasure to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reccommend! 15 June 2015

I like most of Harrod-Eagles's books in this series! Well defined characters, humor, good plotting and page-turning fun with the main characters. Highly recommend!

I feel I may have missed the first in this series and am not sure what it was. Can someone let me know the title. I've been reading Harrod-Eagles Slider books for years and years and cannot recall the first or even the second title. The ones where he meets Joanna.
I think I've likely read them all and hate not having a new one to read. I thoroughly agree with Jerry Bell's review. I'm near to finishing the one I'm reading now and want another right away!
5.0 out of 5 stars Blood Lines as a title is misleading in a way! 19 April 2016

Addictive series. But every one in this series (16) could stand up separately. Fortunately there are 16 in the series. I only have a few more to read!
5.0 out of 5 stars I am fairly new to this author but love her and have every one I could find 13 October 2014

I am fairly new to this author but love her and have every one I could find. I am Australian - she is English. We speak the same language and I appreciate her English humour and view of the world. Makes me homesick.
