Why was a local philanthropist murdered? Bill Slider investigates . . .
The murder comes – much to Slider’s family’s disgust – during his week off, saving him from the horrors of a trip to the shopping centre with his two older children.
The late Mr Lionel Bygood, who looks, to all intents and purposes, like an old-fashioned sort of gentleman, has been bashed in the head with a bronze statue, in what Doc Cameron describes as ‘our old friend the Frenzied Attack’.
It soon emerges that Mr Bygood was a philanthropist, well-known locally for giving help and advice to all who needed it, from all walks of life. But with all signs pointing to the victim knowing his killer, Slider and his team find themselves embroiled in an investigation that provides scant evidence or possible motive, but all too many suspects . . .
Genre: Crime & Mystery
“As usual, a tour de force of character-driven crime writing from genre master Harrod-Eagles”
Booklist Starred Review
“Harrod-Eagles has neatly updated a typical British procedural and given it 21st-century flair with believable protagonists, a diverse ensemble cast, and contemporary issues. Her knack for making the supporting characters stand out is particularly notable.”
Library Journal Starred Review
“Harrod-Eagles continues to entertain with this well-plotted, gracefully written procedural series.”
“Levelheaded DI Slider returns in a satisfying balance of bullpen banter, lively characterization and thorough detection. ”
