Does blood run thicker than ink?

When one of London's best-known literary agents is found dead in strange circumstances, seemingly having fallen from his office window, DCI Slider is under pressure to confirm a case of accidental death. But when the evidence points to murder, the team find themselves uncovering some decidedly scandalous secrets.

Every lead seems to result in more questions, and as Slider delves deeper into the publishing world it's up to him to sort fact from fiction.

 

Review

Dialogue sparkling with wit and humour . . . An immensely enjoyable ride through London and its publishing world in the company of thoroughly relatable characters. Readers will wish for Slider's career to continue for many years to come - * Publishers Weekly (starred review) *

While the investigation itself makes for an attention-grabbing read, it's Harrod-Eagles' deftly drawn characters and the sheer likeability of Slider and his colleagues that provide the central appeal. As always, Harrod-Eagles salts the narrative with witty repartee, including a wealth of clever puns, all of which help make reading this particular book and the entire series such a treat - * Booklist *

This intricately plotted police procedural is filled with puns, wordplay and cop humour. Slider and his team of believable police detectives are likeable in this witty, thoughtful mystery - * Library Journal (starred review) *

Praise for Cynthia Harrod-Eagles: For detection fans demanding quality and heart as well as ingenious plots - * Daily Mail *

Harrod-Eagles writes terrific crime novels, meshing fully realized characters with multilevel plot lines - * Library Journal *

A truly outstanding series - * Booklist *

Harrod-Eagles is never less than expert in presenting suspect - * Kirkus Reviews *
