Overview
"For a policeman, there are some questions that have to be asked even if you don t want to know the answers . . . "
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."

Contemporary British police procedurals dont get any better than Harrod-Eagless 18th Bill Slider mystery (following 2014s 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 dont 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 orderedmore than onceto 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.)
