Inspector Bill Slider returns in fine fettle. Just as the Royal London Philharmonic is about to start rehearsal, the famous conductor Sir Stefan Radek drops dead on the podium, shot by a mysterious stranger. Slider and his charming partner Atherton get the case and quickly discover that there is no lack of suspects due to the widely held opinion that Sir Stefan was nasty, vindictive, and generally despicable--a view even shared by his family. All of this makes for a juicy and complex plot, well flavored with police-procedural details. There are human-interest details, too, as the orchestra's deputy principal violinist is Joanna, the woman Slider would have left his wife for had his wife not left him first. The struggle over Slider and Joanna's resuming their relationship provides the enjoyable subplot. Well populated with engaging characters and extremely well plotted, Grave Music establishes Bill Slider as one of the best of contemporary British police detectives. Stuart MillerFrom Library Journal :
If your mystery readers have yet to meet British Inspector Bill Slider and Company, it's time they do. Though readers may guess the murderer early on in this fourth in the series, his police cohorts, and his violinist love, Joanna, are among the most appealing cast in recent memory. Their relationships, the music world setting, and the clever dialog (with blessedly fewer puns than in previous works) recommend this to all collections. Start with the first in the series, Orchestrated Death (LJ 1/92).
