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'
'Sharp, witty and well-plotted'
'Harrod-Eagles and her detective hero form a class act. The style is fast, funny and furious - the plotting crisply devious'
