    • Abstract:
      Summary: "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." -- Amazon.com

Booklist Reviews 2015 December #2

DI Bill Slider and his team are in a rare quiet period when their interest is piqued by two separate cases: the hit-and-run death of a teenager in a London suburb, and a man who kills himself by jumping in front of a Tube train. Slider is particularly keen to solve the hit-and-run death because he simply can't understand what a young girl from central London was doing so far from home and why she was dressed so provocatively. As Slider investigates, he finds a tenuous link to the Tube train death, and he simply can't let the case go, even though his boss is furious that Slider is wasting precious time and resources on a case that's outside his jurisdiction. 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. Slider isn't as curmudgeonly as Ian Rankin's John Rebus, but he will certainly appeal to the same readers. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2016 February #1

A middle-aged city planner jumps in front of a London tube train; a 15-year-old girl is the victim of a fatal hit-and- run accident. DCI Bill Slider, never one to take the easy way out, gradually links the two cases in the 18th addition to this excellent British police procedural series (Hard Going).

Contemporary British police procedurals don't get any better than Harrod-Eagles's 18th Bill Slider mystery (following 2014's Star Fall), which opens with two apparently unrelated deaths. A middle-aged city planner jumps in front of a train at a London tube stop and a teenage girl from a city slum is found in a country lane, possibly the victim of a hit-and-run. Slider, now a detective chief inspector, is only peripherally involved, but things that don't quite fit tend to niggle at him until he can make sense of them. In this case, those little threads eventually lead to something that is not only awful but affects those so far up the food chain that he is ordered—more than once—to desist. But with his staff of devoted and clever underlings, he cannot. In an age when police budgets are being cut, how much must one kowtow to those who control the purse strings? This is a meditation on modern times as well as a crackling good story. (Feb.)
