Necrochip: A Bill Slider Mystery (3) by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

'An outstanding series' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

A Bill Slider Mystery

There's a changing of the guard at Shepherd's Bush police station. But unfortunately for Bill Slider, incoming Detective Superintendent Barrington has something to prove and no desire to make friends with his subordinates.

Luckily - or rather, unluckily - Slider has work to be getting on with, and soon the discovery of a dismembered corpse plunges him into west London's seedy underworld.

But something's not sitting right. Why did Barrington have an axe to grind with the old Detective Superintendent? The more Slider learns, the less he likes it, and the less he can believe that his job is ever going to win him friends in high places ...


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

Necrochip Reviews

Unerring characterization, droll copper dialogue and a gritty London setting, Harrod-Eagles mines fresh pleasures from standard procedural resources. * Publishers Weekly *
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 *
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
The mystery is a good one, its investigation is workmanlike, and the writing is assured and even elegant. * Sunday Telegraph *
A witty, intricate puzzle * Publishers Weekly *
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 *
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. * New York Times Book Review *
