More About the Author

Cynthia Harrod-Eagles was born in Shepherd's Bush in London. She was educated at Burlington School, a girls' charity school founded in 1699, and at the University of Edinburgh and University College London, where she studied English, history and philosophy. She wrote her first novel while at university and in 1972 won the Young Writers' Award with THE WAITING GAME.

Afterwards she had a variety of jobs in the commercial world, while writing during the evenings and weekends. The birth of the MORLAND DYNASTY series enabled her to become a full-time writer in 1979. The series was originally intended to comprise twelve volumes, but it has proved so popular that it has now been extended to thirty-four.

In 1993 she won the RNA Novel of the Year Award with EMILY, the third volume of her Kirov Saga, a trilogy set in nineteenth century Russia, and she also writes the internationally acclaimed BILL SLIDER MYSTERIES.

Cynthia Harrod-Eagles still lives in London, has a husband and three children, and apart from writing her passions are music (she plays in several amateur orchestras) horses, wine, architecture and the English countryside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well plotted with a satisfactory conclusion. 29 Nov 2012
On a hot August day Inspector Bill Slider of Shepherds Bush police station, is called to an unexpected death in an attic room in a Victorian terraced house just off the Uxbridge Road. Here he finds the body of a man in his early thirties dead in his bath. At first taken as a suicide Slider is not sure, as they can find nothing to identify the man. The name Robin Williams under which he rented the room proves false.

Convinced this is murder, Slider first has to identify the corpse and that takes him and his team on a merry dance, through, tattoo parlours and Soho Porn studios. As they trace the pattern of his recent life Slider finds nothing that adds up to who this man actually was.

This is a fascinating and intriguing mystery, just who and what was the mysterious Robin Williams.

We meet again with the elegant fastidious Detective Sergeant Atherton, slider's sidekick and friend; and always a delight is Slider's boss Detective Chief Inspector Fred `The Syrup' Porson he of the famous malapropisms. An old-fashioned copper who dislikes meetings, hates politics and is allergic to golf. Bald with shaggy eyebrows no one ever invites him to a brainstorming breakfast meeting. When Slider brings him up to speed on the case he growls. `A case of walking your chickens before they can run, if you ask me'

After a couple of days when all the leads seem to present even more questions, Sliders morning report to Porson brings forth `Well, feelings are in the eye of the beholder' What lines are you pursuing?

Well plotted with a satisfactory conclusion, a Cynthia Harrod-Eagles book featuring Bill Slider is always a joy and this one does not disappoint only when I turn the last page and wonder how long I will have to wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood Never Dies 6 Sep 2012
The latest Bill Slider mystery finds the DI called to the scene of what was initially thought to be a suicide but which, on closer examination, seems to be a murder. Things become much more complex when the Shepherd's Bush police cannot find any identification for the dead man, nor any personal items, such as cell phone, computer, or wallet, at the scene. Any when they do get the name of the flat's tenant from the building owner, that name appears to be false. Things become murkier as the investigation continues, with more bodies appearing to be tied in to the first.

Present are the usual assortment of colleagues who fans of the series have gotten to know and love, despite (or perhaps because of) their quirks and eccentricities, of course their boss, DS Porson, master of the malapropisms, who "used language like a man flailing at wasps - - usually effective, but never a pretty sight."

Meticulously plotted, the author brings matters to a most satisfactory resolution. As much as the mystery itself, and the wonderful characters who inhabit it, among the most enjoyable ingredients of this series are the charming descriptions, of people and places, employed by her, e.g., "scrawny frog-eyed Hollis, with his despairing hair and feather-duster moustache [who] made Peter Lorre look like a model from a knitwear catalogue;" the aforementioned building owner, "short and swarthy, his head emerging from his shoulders without the bother of a neck;" one character who had "so many spare tyres round his neck he looked as though his chin was resting on a stack of crumpets;" another who had teeth "so white he'd have been useful to have around on a rocky shore in the fog;" a bouncer whose "chest was so broad his nipples were in different time zones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Slider. 13 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have only read the 'Bill Slider' books from this writer but am transfixed by their detail and by their humour, should be made into a series a little on the lines of Beck in Nordic Noir.
