Another detective to follow.
I enjoy police procedurals and thrillers with strong characters: Roy Grace, Simon Serrailler, Maeve Kerrigan, Jane Tennison, Morse and so on. So it was great to discover a new one with a stack of books to go for.
DI Bill Slider and his team from Shepherds Bush are a great bunch. Slider is intelligent, thoughtful and actually works out the riddles of the initial murder and its victim, when all is definitely not as it seems. He's a solid detective, much cleverer than his superiors but passed over for propmotion as he fails to promote himself and his abilities. We also have an insight into the domestic life of Slider and Atherton, his sergeant.
This story is a clever web of pretence and lies, with the team having to crack the case as those linked to it have a nasty habit of ending up dead.
Good plot, well written and I thought the narration was OK, although sometimes it's a bit hard to differentiate between the characters, although it doesn't spoil the enjoyment. Unfortunately, many of the early books in the series are not available in Audible but it's easy to catch up, so not too much of a problem. I'll be returning for more.
