SHALLOW GRAVE: The Old Rectory is the kind of house Detective Inspector Bill Slider would give anything to own. But the dead body of Jennifer Andrews, found in a hole on the terrace, rather spoils the view. It looks like a straightforward case: Jennifer was a congenital flirt, and the hole was dug by her builder husband Eddie, who was violent and jealous. But questions remain unanswered. Why was Jennifer’s body so unmarked? And how did she reach her shallow grave unnoticed?

BLOOD SINISTER: Award-winning ex-Guardian hack Phoebe Agnew had a name for championing the underdog – and for attacking the police in print. When her trussed and strangled body is found in her chaotic flat, Detective Inspector Slider must demonstrate the impartiality of the law and find her killer. Unidentified fingerprints, a missing ligature, alibis offered when none is required – Slider is on a race against time to untangle the web of lies and hidden relationships.
