One Under
by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

For a policeman, there are some questions that have to be asked even if you don’t want to know the answers . . .

A middle-aged man jumps under a tube train at Shepherd’s Bush station, and a teenage girl is killed in a hit-and-run, in a country lane puzzlingly far from her home on the White City Estate: two unrelated incidents which occupy DCI Bill Slider and his team during a slack period. At least it’s a change of speed after the grind of domestics, burglaries and Community Liaison.

But links to a cold case – another dead teenager, pulled out of the River Thames – create doubts as to whether they are indeed unrelated. And slowly a trail of corruption and betrayal is uncovered, leading Slider and his firm ever deeper into a morass of horror.


“A crackling good story”

Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“As usual, Harrod-Eagles offers up an attention-grabbing, fast-paced, engrossing police procedural with plenty of twists and a hero who’s a gifted copper and a likable human being”


“Cynthia Harrod- Eagles wins our admiration as the adventure proceeds and as always leaves us satisfied.”

Fresh Fiction

“Thank you Cynthia Harrod-Eagles for not only giving us a good thriller with big, bold characters but also keeping us amused whilst dealing with some pretty unsavoury subjects.”

Breakaway Reviewers

“A harrowing storyline brilliantly written. A twisty turny story of horrific child abuse, murder, lies and corruption told sensitively and with a well placed smattering of humour .”

D Bradley, reviewer
