*Starred Review* The always reliable Harrod-Eagles adds another winner to her excellent Bill Slider series. London Detective Inspector Slider’s latest case has the intrepid copper trying to solve the murder of Melanie Hunter, a pretty young woman with a sad past and a future that looked bright until she was killed. There are plenty of potential suspects, from the oddball who lived downstairs and who’d served time for killing his wife to Melanie’s stepfather, a teacher whose respectable facade covers a brutal nature, to Melanie’s boyfriend, a real-estate agent sorely lacking in scruples. Slider is frustrated when the investigation moves at a snail’s pace, but even when a light-bulb moment leads to a solution, the case is so full of sadness and tragedy that resolution brings little satisfaction. While Harrod-Eagles conjures up an absorbing police procedural, it’s her ability to capture the foibles of her characters, to make them come alive, to show the playfulness and passion of human nature, and to evoke the reader’s empathy that makes her books stand out. Highly recommended for all readers of police procedurals. --Emily Melton
