Read full description of the books Death to Go:A severed finger in a portion of chips is the gruesome start to this compelling crime novel. The rest of the body is discovered in black plastic sacks outside the back of the shop and naturally the owner, with the only key to the premises, is the prime suspect. But there will be other deaths before the complex web of crime is uncovered and the final story told. DI Bill Slider, in charge of the investigation, is facing problems of his own with lover Joanna giving him an ultimatum and Bill himself struggling with the decision about leaving his wife.
I found this book compelling reading with its interesting characters, complex plot and truly awful puns which add touches of macabre humour to the whole thing. I thought the way the interaction between the police characters was very well done with the uneasy assimilation of their new boss – DS Barrington – into the squad. New brooms may sweep clean but they are apt to discard things which are better kept.
If you like your crime novels with plenty of humour and well-drawn characters then this series may be for you. The books can be read in any order but it is easier to follow the characters’ private lives if they are read in the order in which they are published – this is number three is the series.
