DEAD END: A call-out to a murder saves D.I Bill Slider from having to finish his canteen lunch, but presents him with the problem of a dead conductor. In life Sir Stefan Radek was seriously famous and terminally unpleasant, but neither of these facts seem reason enough to gun him down in a neo-Byzantine church in Shepherd's Bush.
BLOOD LINES: A celebrated music critic seems to have committed suicide just before appearing on a live television show, but Slider suspects it … mehris murder when it is shown that the body had been interfered with and when he learns that the victim had quarreled violently with his fellow panelists.
KILLING TIME: Only half-recovered from an assault from the last villain he encountered, Slider is forced to investigate the murder of an erotic dancer, finding himself having to question lap-dancers, prostitutes, pimps and cabinet ministers, and discovering one of his fellow officers has dubious links with all of them. weniger
