An outstanding series' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW A Bill Slider Mystery Detective Inspector Bill Slider has always been keen on architecture - what Atherton calls his edifice complex - and The Old Rectory is the kind of house he would give anything to own. But the dead body of Je...nnifer Andrews, found in a hole dug by her builder husband Eddie, rather spoils the view from the terrace. It looks a straightforward enough case but as the investigation proceeds, Slider finds, frustratingly, that nothing makes sense. Why do local people differ so sharply in their opinions of her? Most say she's a promiscuous man-eater who deserved what she got; others paint her as a long-suffering abused wife. Slider and Atherton must first discover the truth about the victim before they can uncover the truth about her death. Praise for the Bill Slider series: Rapid pacing, sharp dialogue, strong storyline and confident writing style should delight lovers of British procedurals on both sides of the Atlantic. BOOK WORLD Although the milieu seems light years away from the edgy chaos of the city, the quiet-desperation crowd proves itself capable of its own brand of nasty behaviour. Harrod-Eagles's ability to plumb the pathos from the depths of daily life remains razor sharp. BOOKLIST Complex and sophisticated. The puzzle and the people are intriguing, and the denouement compelling, making another winner for this outstanding writer. KIRKUS REVIEWS Yet again Ms Harrod-Eagles hits the bullseye with her concoction of mystery and humour. Highly recommended. IRISH TIMES Time spent in the company of this literate crew is always worthwhile. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
