Death Watch

An outstanding series’ NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

A Bill Slider Mystery

The lot of the working copper is getting harder: new regulations, regular rousting by the top brass, a budget tighter than a Victoria corset and a DC who thinks he’s in a John Le Carré novel makes it a trying time for Detective inspector Bill Slider.

Then when a noted womanizer dies in mysterious fire in a sleazy motel and the whole of his murky past comes to light, Slider begins to question whether this was suicide… or murder.

And that’s not the only thing Slider is questioning. As soon as he’s solved the motel mystery, Bill is going to have to put his own house in order…

Praise for the Bill Slider series:

‘Slider and his creator are real discoveries’
Daily Mail

‘Sharp, witty and well-plotted’
Times

‘Harrod-Eagles and her detective hero form a class act. The style is fast, funny and furious – the plotting crisply devious’
Irish Times

Reviews

The mystery is a good one, its investigation is workmanlike, and the writing is assured and even elegant.
Sunday Telegraph
There is a briskness and unpretentiousness to Harrod-Eagles' writing... (she) keeps the plot moving with verve and wit and the whole thing is suitably entertaining.
Million
Unerring characterization, droll copper dialogue and a gritty London setting, Harrod-Eagles mines fresh pleasures from standard procedural resources.
Publishers Weekly
A lively and witty writer. Integrating romance and suspense with the same artful grace she achieved in her first mystery, the author is well on her way to an outstanding series.
