Publisher's 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.

    "Slider Reliable"

    I enjoyed listening to this one. I haven't read all the Bill Slider series, but I have read a lot of them. I enjoy them, on the whole. The (minor) problem I have with them is possibly more of a comment on me than on the books: I have the same problem with the Charles Paris stories and quite a few others. I like Bill and Charles, but just occasionally, I'd like to see things go right for them. I know stories need reverses, but Slider just seems to have SO many. Early in the series, he falls in love with Joanna, but doesn't tell his wife. He faffs about and nearly loses Joanna. Then his wife leaves him. Hooray! Joanna... but hey, she's off on a long trip. Now I catch up and find out that though they're married, something else has gone wrong for them...

    As I said, that might be just me. I like Atherton, and all the others of the team. I like the style, and Slider's dogged character. I like the details about music and policing. I'd just love to see him NOT get a bollocking for doing his job properly. Come to think of it... I often get annoyed with those books or series where a talented amateur solves a lot of the crimes and yet the police are forever telling him or her to butt out.

    If you enjoy Slider though, this is a solid entry. I enjoyed the narration, too.
