Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

An outstanding series' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEWA Bill Slider Mystery Journalist Phoebe Cutler had a name for championing the underdog - and for attacking the police whenever the opportunity arose. Now she's dead, and Inspector Bill Slider must demonstrate the impartiality of the law and find her killer. But Cutler had enemies in high and low places, and more than one secret in her past; and there seems to be someone who definitely doesn't want Slider to come up with the answer.Praise for the Bill Slider series:"Sharp, witty and well-plotted." THE TIMES"Harrod-Eagles is a master of the telling phrase or the catchy put-down. Reading her is a joy." IRISH TIMES"The ebullient Detective Inspector Bill Slider is in good form in Cynthia Harrod-Eagles's new mystery. It's a good puzzle, with well-rounded characters and, fans will be happy to hear, plenty of the usual dreadful puns." SUNDAY TELEGRAPH"Phoebe Agnew, hack journalist and no great fan of the police, is found dead. The army of suspects includes a plethora of police and politicians. Just what was Phoebe researching when she died and why were there no notes left in her pigsty of a flat? The writing is often atmospheric, entertaining us with keen character studies." SHOTS ON THE PAGE"BLOOD SINISTER is stuffed with clues into the psychology of characters who think they are being oh-so-clever about guarding their secrets. Even so, the events leadings up to the murder of Phoebe Agnew, a beautiful, wild and untidy left-wing journalist with friends and lovers in London's highest political places, are a true puzzlement right to the end." NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW"Her characters are deliciously droll, and she writes with all her customary biting wit and a complexity all too rare in mystery fiction." KIRKUS REVIEWS

An outstanding series' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEWA Bill Slider Mystery Detective Superintendent Dickson is to be replaced by DS Baverstock, who has no desire to be loved by his subordinates. It is all par for the course for Detective Inspector Bill Slider as he faces a case that takes him through Hammersmith and Notting Hill.This investigation begins as a supposed crime passionelle, but each new kernel of evidence reveals an increasingly complex web of criminal intrigue. Slider is called on when a teenager finds a human finger among the fried potatoes at a London fish-and-chip shop. Body parts continue to surface as events expand to include a sinister tycoon, a prostitutes, rooming house, three mysterious men and five murders...Praise for the Bill Slider series:"Harrod-Eagles and her detective hero form a class act. The style is fast, funny and furious, the plotting crisply devious, and the denouement perversely wayward. And even then, the final line in the novel contains an extra little gasp-inducing twist. Lovely stuff." Irish Times"A witty, intricate puzzle." Publishers Weekly"Being able to write with pacy humour is rare. Constructing good thrillers with realistic characters is also rare. Being able to combine the two, and to do it successfully, is nearly unique." David Tumelty
