Old Bones book cover

Old Bones

A young couple discover human remains buried in the garden of their new house. Could this be the last resting place of 14-year-old Amanda Knight, who disappeared from the same garden two decades before?

After his previous case, DCI Slider is not popular with the Powers That Be, and his immediate boss, Detective Superintendent Porson, reckons this puzzle will keep Slider out of trouble. After all, this is the coldest of cold cases. After twenty years, most of the principal players are now dead too. All passion is long spent…

Or is it?

As usual, Harrod-Eagles offers up an attention-grabbing, fast-paced, engrossing police procedural with plenty of twists and a hero who’s a gifted copper and a likeable human being.
