I love this author and I love being able to collect this series through these second hand dealers. I haven't had a bad dealer yet and have been using many for quite a while.j

When exotic dancer Jay Paloma has been receiving poison pen letters for months so he tells London detective Inspector Bill Slider, but it is not until now that he decides to do something. He is getting worried he is going to leave town and settle back in Ireland - so he says. But he wants protection. Unfortunately he failed to keep any of the letters and Slider can't do anything. So when he is found murdered Slider feels some guilt and responsibility to track down his killer - but he has little to go on.
Killing time is the 6th book in Cynthia Harrod-Eagles series of Shepherd's Bush Inspector Bill Slider. Slider's normal Side-kick is still in hospital recovering from a stab wound got in the course of the investigation of the previous murder Mystery - "Blood lines" so Slider is pared with a sassy young Black woman - detective Hart.
There is also a clash of personalities in Slider's own Police station with a colleague not wishing to share information on another investigation which might cross with his own - and then there is one of Slider's own colleagues - PC Cosgrove in the thick of the investigation with everything pointing to his possible involvement in the crime.
The mystery is very good - the personal side of things tends not to be - luckily there is very little delving into the personal life of Slider, his soon to be ex-wife Irene and his lover Joanna to distract from the real focus of this book - the solving of the murder. I do like the way Harrod-Eagles slowly reveals each level of clues so you follow with Slider the whole way to the solving of the crime. Harrod Eagles also has the tendency to be a bit smart with the puns - each chapter has a sort of pun title which I find alternatively mildly witty or not so witty. And the characters tend to pun with one another a lot. Perhaps I just don't appreciate that too much as funny and find it at times a bit distracting more than anything. I wish Harrod-Eagles would stick to her amazing mysteries.

This is an excellent story. I love Ms. Harrod-Eagles' characterizations, both of her key players as well as the secondary ones that appear in each novel. This particular book has some wonderful secondary charcters - Busty Parnell and Jay Paloma and Slider's new partner - (while Atherton is recovering in hospital) Hart are wonderful! We see more of Ms. Harrod-Eagles cracking wit in this book. Her puns in the chapter headings are still wonderful. In this book we see the murder of a homosexual dancer, and Slider sets out to find out who killed him and why. Slider enters the netherworld that all police officers are exposed to - notorious nightclubs, table-top dancers, drugs, etc. etc. in order to track down the killer. I love this series!

I love this series because it is different. Funny, witty, streetwise. I'm always looking forward to the next instalment. The only disappointment for me was that some of the characters were a tad too quirky.
