Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's Detective Inspector Bill Slider's day off and he had hoped to have some quiet time with Joanna, his pregnant fiancee. But a woman's body is found in the park and he finds himself back to work sooner than he expected. At first glance, it looks as though the woman is the latest victim of the Park Killer. But it doesn't take Slider and his partner Atherton long to establish that someone else was trying to pass the killing off as the handiwork of the notorious serial killer. This murder doesn't fit the pattern; this one was personal.

The woman's modest income and outlandish lifestyle don't match up. Turning to the two most popular motives---money and passion---Slider and his team turn up some puzzling anomalies in her life, not the least of which is the number of men she took as lovers and the tangled relationships of her family.

In Slider's latest adventure, the prolific and masterful Cynthia Harrod-Eagles draws from her great store of wit and warmth. The good-hearted and delightfully flawed Slider charms readers into accompanying him down any path, no matter how dangerous.

Synopsis:

Chattie Cornfeld was murdered while jogging in the park. She ran her own small marketing company and lived comfortably, perhaps too comfortably for her income. At first it looked as though she was the latest victim of the "Park Killer," but it doesn't take Slider and Atherton long to establish that someone was trying to pass the killing off as part of a pattern—only the pattern doesn't fit, this one was personal. Chattie was popular with all who crossed her path, and it was difficult to imagine she had gained any enemies. Turning to the two most popular motives for murder—money and passion—Slider and his team's investigation turn up some puzzling anomalies in her life, not least the number of men who counted themselves as her lover and the tangled relationships of her family. But none of the suspects can be made to fit what evidence they have, unless of course they've been mis-reading the evidence.

Synopsis:

Rewarded with a smart, likable wife-to-be, Detective Bill Slider finds himself embroiled in an investigation of the "Park Killer"--and the more Slider investigates, the more convinced he becomes that he's dealing with more than one murderer.
