Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Delightful dialogue and carefully observed details make Harrod-Eagles's 10th Bill Slider mystery a winner (after 2002's Gone Tomorrow), despite a somewhat unimaginative choice of culprit. The London police detective and his likable team—especially Jim Atherton, a womanizer who's unexpectedly enlightened on other subjects, and Tony Hart, with her astute observations and wry sense of humor—look into what appears at first to be another strike by the so-called Park Killer. Chattie Cornfeld, however, died in a slightly different manner from previous victims, so Slider starts investigating other avenues. Chattie's notably unsavory half sister, Jassy, and Jassy's equally lowlife boyfriend had been pestering Chattie just before her murder. Chattie's estranged father, the head of a major chemical company, is a possible suspect, as are several of her love interests. Slider's own love interest, his pregnant girlfriend, Joanna, ducks in and out of the story, but fails to light up as the other main characters do. Nevertheless, there's plenty of energy and personality in these pages. (Dec.)

From Booklist

The tenth in the Bill Slider series showcases both a killer clever enough to slide under the radar and, again, London detective Slider himself, adept at performing under people's expectations before producing a case-breaking confession or discovery. Slider is a British version of Columbo, slow moving but quick witted, irritating to higher-ups, confusing to criminals. In the latest in this somewhat cozy police-procedural series, Slider is called to what police believe is the third Park Killer slaying. A female jogger has been found dead in the bushes, killed in a public park in broad daylight, the trademark MO of the Park Killer. But Slider's take on the scene and his follow-up with the forensic pathologist suggest that this may be a copycat attempting to throw suspicion on the established serial killer. London detectives must sort through two interlocking techniques to discover the real culprit. Deft plotting and solid procedure. Connie Fletcher
