Product description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but still good enough 21 April 2017
By N. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of the Bill Slider books written by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles, and so have been looking forward to this latest instalment. But it is most probably her weakest one. The plot is so predictable that I had it figured out a third of the way in, and spent the rest of the book silently willing the characters to see the obvious. The denouement, therefore, fell rather flat. Having said that, though, I do not read the Bill Slider books for the plot. I read them because she has a genius for characterisation, and her books teem with people that are so real I feel as if I would recognise them if I passed them in the street. It is in the small, telling, detail: someone who picks the crumbs up off a plate with a wetted forefinger; the different patterns of speech; the way someone sits or stands; drinks their beer; applies their make-up; steers a car round a corner. You feel as if you are sitting right next to these people as they go about their work, and when the book is finished you feel as bereft as if your best friend has emigrated. So... this might not be C.HE's best book, but it is still head and shoulders above the others in this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Slider never disappoints 10 March 2017
By Magpie - Published on Amazon.com

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

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.
