Power, money, murder . . . Investigating a seemingly accidental death leads DCI Bill Slider and his team down a dark path in this gripping British police procedural. The woman lies dead at the foot of the stairs. It' s obvious what happened: she tripped and fell. But PC D' Arblay, called to the dilapidated West London villa by an anonymous tip-off, can' t shake the feeling that' s exactly what someone wants him to think. It was the deep head wound that killed her - but her dying fall left no blood trail, so what was it she hit her head on? DCI Slider, of the Shepherd' s Bush murder squad, is soon convinced D' Arblay' s right. But with no motive, no murder weapon and no idea even who the victim is, Slider faces steep odds to get a result . . . while each painstaking step towards the truth brings him closer to a ruthless, evil killer. The Bill Slider series is in "a league of its own" (Publishers Weekly Starred Review). If you haven' t met Slider and his team yet, why not start now?
