Star Fall Summary

Star Fall by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

Who would kill a charming antiques expert Rowland Egerton, the darling of daytime TV? Bill Slider and his team are on the case . . .

'It's quiet out there,' says DS Atherton, at Bill Slider's office window. 'Too quiet.' Right on cue, the phone rings. 'Now look what you've done,' says Slider. It's a homicide. The post-Christmas lull is officially over.

The deceased is antiques expert Rowland Egerton, the darling of daytime TV, stabbed to death in his luxurious West London home. The press are going to be all over this one like a nasty rash: the pressure's on Slider for a result, and soon.

Egerton's partner, the bulky, granite-faced John Lavender, found the body; did he also do the deed? Or was it a burglary gone wrong? A missing Faberge box and Impressionist painting point that way. But as Slider and his team investigate, none of the facts seem to fit. And it soon becomes clear that the much-loved, charming Mr Egerton wasn't as universally loved, or perhaps as charming, as Slider was first led to believe . . .

Star Fall Reviews

Laughaloud levity that's pure genius. Highly recommended * Booklist Starred Review *
Clear, direct prose offers the occasional unexpected phrase: The traffic lights, all green, were round alien eyes watching him; a good-looking man has an enviable head of hair, sculpted by the same firm that designed the Sydney Opera House. This well-done tale should earn the author new fans * Publishers Weekly Starred Review *
