Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0751532274, Paperback)In this ninth outing for the likeable detective, Inspector Bill Slider is called to cope with a disfigured corpse grotesquely left in a children's playground. His enquiries plunge him into the shadow world behind the fashionable facade of Shepherd's Bush, among the victims of the Welfare State and the crime barons who prey on them; a world where no-one is who he says he is, and lying to the police is second nature. Slider's thankless task is to convince the witnesses, against all available evidence, that honesty really is the best policy. And with his lover Joanna away, fate seems suddenly determined to strew his private life with temptations.

The stabbed body of a well-dressed man is found slumped on a swing in a playground in the heart of Shepherd's Bush - Detective Inspector Bill Slider's patch. Slider's trail unearths the victim's sordid lifestyle of debts, drugs and dodgy deals. As the police probe deeper the body count rises and Slider suspects the machinations of a crime baron who will stop at nothing to keep his identity hidden. Slider's personal life is just as complicated but maybe when this investigation is over he'll find out just what it is that Joanna has been trying to tell him.
