By Harrod-Eagles, Cynthia
An outstanding series' NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW A Bill Slider Mystery Journalist Phoebe Cutler had a name for championing the underdog - and for attacking the police whenever the opportunity arose. Now she's dead, and Inspector Bill Slider must demonstrate the impartiality of t...he law and find her killer. But Cutler had enemies in high and low places, and more than one secret in her past; and there seems to be someone who definitely doesn't want Slider to come up with the answer. Praise for the Bill Slider series: Sharp, witty and well-plotted. THE TIMES Harrod-Eagles is a master of the telling phrase or the catchy put-down. Reading her is a joy. IRISH TIMES The ebullient Detective Inspector Bill Slider is in good form in Cynthia Harrod-Eagles's new mystery. It's a good puzzle, with well-rounded characters and, fans will be happy to hear, plenty of the usual dreadful puns. SUNDAY TELEGRAPH Phoebe Agnew, hack journalist and no great fan of the police, is found dead. The army of suspects includes a plethora of police and politicians. Just what was Phoebe researching when she died and why were there no notes left in her pigsty of a flat? The writing is often atmospheric, entertaining us with keen character studies. SHOTS ON THE PAGE BLOOD SINISTER is stuffed with clues into the psychology of characters who think they are being oh-so-clever about guarding their secrets. Even so, the events leadings up to the murder of Phoebe Agnew, a beautiful, wild and untidy left-wing journalist with friends and lovers in London's highest political places, are a true puzzlement right to the end. NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW Her characters are deliciously droll, and she writes with all her customary biting wit and a complexity all too rare in mystery fiction. KIRKUS REVIEWSRead more
