BODY LINE, by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles
When Slider and sidekick Jim Atherton arrive at an elegant Georgian mansion in Shepherd's Bush, they learn the victim's girlfriend had hung from her fingertips from a balcony to avoid the killer. But she never saw his face, only his heavy boots. It seems that the good doctor is rather faceless as well. A big spender, fond of the best money could buy (including more than one or two girlfriends), but nobody is really sure how he earned his money. As Slider and his team investigate, a completely different view of the victim emerges. This is a 5, with marvelously funny (at times) dialogue, a good solid plot, and ltos of interesting characters. Wonderful series.
