Bill Slider and his team investigate the death of a prominent literary agent in this intriguing contemporary mystery.
When one of London’s best-known literary agents is found dead in strange circumstances, having fallen headlong from his office window, DCI Slider is under pressure from the Borough Commander to confirm a case of accidental death. But when the evidence points to murder, Slider and his team find themselves uncovering some decidedly scandalous secrets in the suave and successful Ed Wiseman’s past.
An embittered ex-wife. A discarded mistress. A frustrated would-be author. A disgruntled former employee. Many had reason to hold a grudge against the late lamented literary agent. But who would feel strongly enough to kill him? Any leads in the investigation seem only to result in more questions – not least of which is the identity of the elusive Calliope Hunt. Who is she – and what is her connection to the train of events?
Genre: Crime & Mystery
“This intricately plotted police procedural is filled with puns, wordplay, and cop humor. Slider and his team of believable police detectives are likable in this witty, thoughtful mystery … Fans of Deborah Crombie’s “Duncan Kincaid” and “Gemma James” series will be moved by this carefully constructed tale”
Library Journal Starred Review, February PICK OF THE MONTH
“An immensely enjoyable ride … Readers will wish for Slider’s career to continue for many years to come”
Publishers Weekly Starred Review
“Harrod-Eagles salts the narrative with witty repartee, including a wealth of clever puns, all of which help make reading this particular book and the entire series such a treat”
