As usual with her books, Harrod-Eagles uses beautiful prose, and the plot follows a clear path to the denouement.
Although Slider and his fellow detectives are always trying to solve a murder, the author does not wallow in the gore, and she is too good a writer to depend on horror and shock tactics.
I also enjoy the clever puns and sly allusions.
The anxiety her readers endured while waiting to see if Bill and Joanna would find a way out of their financial and accommodation difficulties was finally laid to rest, but not until the last couple of pages, which kept the reader in suspense.
I would certainly recommend this book to friends and family, though I think they should read the earlier books in the series first.
