Product Description

DCI Bill Slider tackles the coldest of cold cases in this absorbing mystery.

A young couple discover human remains buried in the garden of their new house: could this be the resting place of 14-year-old Amanda Knight, who disappeared from the same garden two decades before, and was never seen again?



The problem comes almost as a relief to DCI Slider, still suffering from the fallout of his previous case. He is not popular with the Powers That Be, and his immediate boss, Detective Superintendent Porson, reckons that at least this little puzzle will keep Slider out of trouble. After all, with a murder twenty years in the past, this is the coldest of cold cases. Most of the suspects and principal players are now dead too, and all passion is long spent. Or is it?

This is a British police procedural. It stands apart from many others in this genre because of the light humor. The author uses puns and malapropisms consistently throughout that are often very funny. It is well plotted with entertaining characters. As part of a continuing series it doesn't hurt to know the characters' backstories, but it is not necessary.
5.0 out of 5 stars British Procedural in London 21 May 2017
By Constant Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Bill Slider and the familiar cast are back on the job when a skeleton is discovered in the back yard where a 14-year-old girl had disappeared 25 years earlier. That is the new puzzle and main plot of this book. However, old threads of police corruption and pressure from powerful criminals are also present. You can understand the main plot as a stand-alone, but you may not understand the old threads if you have not read the previous books in the series. Nor will you recognize or appreciate the personality quirks of recurring characters as much if this is your first book in the series. It is a reasonably good British police procedural series set in London. The author does an excellent job with her characters, plot and settings. This series is a cut above many. One of the things that I particularly enjoyed in this book was Joanna’s explanation of her passion as a professional musician. It ha nothing to do with the mystery, but it added dimension.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Slider never disappoints 10 March 2017
By Magpie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Bill Slider never disappoints! Once again we are in Shepherds Bush with the team. Once again all of the characterisations are three dimensional even the minor parts. I should really say especially the minor parts - many of them are taken from real life I am sure. The story is well plotted and never lets go. all in all another standout performance from Cynthia Harrod-Eagles.

5.0 out of 5 stars I adore Bill Slider 11 February 2017
By Alexandra Amor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wait all year for a new police procedural from Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. I am never disappointed. I love these books. The mysteries are wonderful and the relationships between the lead characters equally so. I wish Bill Slider, Joanna, and Atherton were my friends. Huge thank you to the author for such a pleasurable reading experience.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent as always 27 March 2017

I have read every book in this series and the author always delivers. She can pack more characterization, plot and thoughtfulness (including some wonderfully funny passages) in 250 pages than some authors need 700 pages to develop and not nearly as successfully as Ms Harrod-Eagles does. Sorry for the lousy grammar. Read this and enjoy.
