    A severed finger in a portion of chips is the gruesome start to this compelling crime novel The rest of the body is discovered in black plastic sacks outside the back of the shop and naturally the owner, with the only key to the premises, is the prime suspect But there will be other deaths before the complex web of crime is uncovered and the final story told DI Bill Slider, in charge of the investigation, is facing problems of his own with lover Joanna giving him an ultimatum and Bill himself A severed finger in a portion of chips is the gruesome start to this compelling crime novel The rest of the body is discovered in black plastic sacks outside the back of the shop and naturally the owner, with the only key to the premises, is the prime suspect But there will be other deaths before the complex web of crime is uncovered and the final story told DI Bill Slider, in charge of the investigation, is facing problems of his own with lover Joanna giving him an ultimatum and Bill himself struggling with the decision about leaving his wife.I found this book compelling reading with its interesting characters, complex plot and truly awful puns which add touches of macabre humour to the whole thing I thought the way the interaction between the police characters was very well done with the uneasy assimilation of their new boss DS Barrington into the squad New brooms may sweep clean but they are apt to discard things which are better kept.If you like your crime novels with plenty of humour and well drawn characters then this series may be for you The books can be read in any order but it is easier to follow the characters private lives if they are read in the order in which they are published this is number three is the series

    I ve been reading these in order, and true to the rest of the series, this one is most enjoyable for all the parts that have nothing to do with the murder mystery The banter between the members of the police team is very realistic and truly funny the main character s on going love affair together with his inability to break with his wife is genuinely fraught but is beginning to get a bit repetitive There is a hint at the very end that it may soon resolve itself As in the other novels, the mu I ve been reading these in order, and true to the rest of the series, this one is most enjoyable for all the parts that have nothing to do with the murder mystery The banter between the members of the police team is very realistic and truly funny the main character s on going love affair together with his inability to break with his wife is genuinely fraught but is beginning to get a bit repetitive There is a hint at the very end that it may soon resolve itself As in the other novels, the murder mystery is so complex that I eventually gave up trying to figure out whether the repeated summaries of where we are at this point were accurate I just trusted the author that eventually it would all work without inconsistency, and as far as I could tell, it did

    The who done it becomes obvious pretty early in this book but there are enough twists and turns and interesting characters in the murders and in Bill Slider s personal life to make a it an enjoyable read.

    Still going strongBook 3 in the Slider series started strongly, then bogged down a bit When I find my mind wandering, which happened in the latter third of this story due largely to the complex backstory , it is a bad sign There could be many reasons, but experience has shown me that even if I stop and later return to the book, I feel the same So it does not seem to be related to momentary life circumstances or distractions.Notwithstanding, I enjoyed this book, consistent with the first two Still going strongBook 3 in the Slider series started strongly, then bogged down a bit When I find my mind wandering, which happened in the latter third of this story due largely to the complex backstory , it is a bad sign There could be many reasons, but experience has shown me that even if I stop and later return to the book, I feel the same So it does not seem to be related to momentary life circumstances or distractions.Notwithstanding, I enjoyed this book, consistent with the first two The writing is crisp, intelligent, and often highbrow humorous To wit, one of my favorite quotes The piece of cod which passeth understanding AthertonAnd another In the police station the day after Atherton cooked dinner for Polish A catamite look a queen, Atherton offered Come again Polish said blankly I wish you d said that last night, Atherton complained Slider saw Jablonski blush uncomfortably and hastened to intervene I was stunned to learn that this story years place 2 years after the murder in book 1 That seems like a faux pas, given other timeline references, and Joanna s unlikely acquiescence to let Slider drag their relationship out that long, unresolved, which became an.urgent matter in this book Another facet of the book that has been a common thread on the first three stories is Slider being so open and lacking concern and discretion about the affair A Brit thing Or Brit police Or both Slider reminds me of Columbo, and on page 7542 typo in this paperback, actually 754 , he says someone made him feel like Columbo The story had a cliff hanging ending with several key plotlines in play, leaving me curious for book 4

    An enjoyable, witty read, which maintained my interest almost until the end Sadly, the last few chapters were a very convoluted solution to the various murders, in which it was hard to keep theminor cogs in the machinations clear in my mind This was coupled with Slider dithering endlessly over whether to leave his wife for Joanna His deliberations included concerns for his children, with whom I don t think he interacted on a single occasion throughout the book.

  6. Richard Richard says:

    Murder mystery several murders as a matter of fact with many interesting twists and turns, combined with Bill Slider s anguish about leaving his wife for Joanna, and humor as well It s a very British mystery, including some language and references that are a little hard to follow, but do not detract from the story.I would give it 3.75 stars

  7. Maggie Maggie says:

    Great series great characters and the story line is gripping and kept me interested Loved the developments with Slider and his wifeeasy to see it coming but loved it all the same Would highly recommend

  8. Paula Paula says:

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I was very disappointed by Slider s selfishness and cowardice in confronting his personal problems and then being let off the hook by the ending Very unsatisfactory.

  9. Beverly Beverly says:

    Another great read for the 3rd book in this series The mystery begins with a customer finding a severed finger in her fish and chips and builds from there Lots of convolutions before the identity of the victim is discovered and plenty of flashing back and forth to Slider continuing to waffle between his wife and his mistress I wish this would be resolved because it makes me hesitant to like this character even though overall I think he s a good guy.

    Started yesterday, it is a quick read, but with intelligent writing Published in 1993, dated but still current enough to enjoy Portable phones are large cumbersome gear Not yet mobiles I like to read the strange British ways of wording things for a sample of Cynthia s writing that generates a smile, In the middle of the morning the atmosphere at Shepherd s Bush nick was so dense and bland you could have poured it over apple pie and called it custard Lots of metaphors, is that the word
