Book Description

A Bill Slider Mystery - When ex-BBC correspondent Ed Stonax is found dead, the last thing Detective Inspector Slider needs to complicate his life is the reappearance of an old enemy issuing death threats. Trevor Bates, aka The Needle, is on the loose and trying to kill him, and with a high-profile murder to solve, Slider must try to find a spare moment to marry Joanna before their baby is born and stay alive long enough to do it . . .


Product Description

Review

"Like John Harvey's Charley Resnick, Slider's mix of toughness, sensitivity, and melancholy works on all levels" Booklist on Game Over "Deft plotting and solid procedure" Booklist on Dear Departed "Another excellent procedural" Library Journal on Gone Tomorrow "Five stars and two thumbs up for another superb procedural from Harrod-Eagles, whose Slider series belongs right up there with the work of John Harvey and Ian Rankin" Booklist on Blood Sinister"

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 Game Over 16 Feb. 2009
Format:Hardcover
The eleventh in the Bill Slider series finds the Detective Inspector trying to arrange his marriage to his love, Joanna, before the impending birth in approximately seven weeks of their child. As he says: "I've been trying to get married . . . arranging a wedding between a policeman and a musician is like trying to push a balloon into a milk bottle." As the book opens Slider and crew are investigating the murder of Ed Stonax, former BBC correspondent who had left to become a civil servant a couple of years back, only to be forced to leave that position when he became embroiled in a sex scandal. Is it a random burglary gone wrong, or does it stem from something in his previous professions that had somehow led to his demise?

At the same time, Slider is dealing with a communication he receives from a criminal in whose arrest he was a participant; the man, Trevor Bates, alias The Needle, had escaped during transfer to a different facility a month prior, and had not been seen or heard from since. Direct threats on his and Joanna's lives up the stakes, and indeed attempts are made on his life. Bates is variously described as a "wealthy businessman, property dealer, electronics expert, murderer . . . intellectual, cold-blooded, and pathologically vain." Quite a nemesis, and one that Slider is determined to re-capture, if only in self-preservation.

Slider's colleague, Atherton, never lacking for female companionship, finds a fast-growing attraction to Stonax' daughter, a journalist now living in New York but who has come back to the UK after her father's death. Only this time it feels different for the serial-dater. Emily, the daughter, begs to be allowed to stay involved in the investigation, and her experience as a journalist becomes a definite asset.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new Bill Slider treat. 9 Nov. 2010
Format:Hardcover
This summer I re-read all my Bill Slider books in sequence and couldn't wait for the next. It didn't disappoint. I love Cynthia Harrod-Eagles way with words - her literary allusions and word-play. These are not just good 'who-dun-its' but involve the reader in the lives of the characters. This book stands on it's own as a good read, but it also shows the development of the characters' relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor delivery service 7 Sept. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book was ordered for a birthday gift. It was promised "next day", estimated two days after (on a Saturday) but didn't arrive until the following Tuesday. No apologies. Fortunately it arrived just in time for the birthday but it was an anxious time. The book itself was well received by the recipient who is a great fan of the Bill Slider stories.

Read this book for the third, time but even when you what will happen next, the characters, locations and storyline are so brilliantly written that I just loved reading it again. Superb.
