Publisher's Summary

The body of a smartly dressed businessman turns up in the yard of Eli Simpson's car workshop. But there's no ID in the pockets, and Eli swears he's never seen the man before. Then a girlfriend turns up with a name and claims the victim told her he was someone's 'right-hand man'. But old fractures and scars suggest a more colourful past. 

For 'right-hand man', DCI Bill Slider and his team read 'enforcer'. So who was Mr King? Who was he the muscle for? What did he have to do with the Davy Lane project and the blackmailing of an MP? And, most crucially, what did he know that made someone decide to terminally muscle the muscle?

Excellent as always

If you like police procedural books, a bit of local colour (West London) and likeable characters, then this is an excellent series. I would suggest starting at the very beginning of the series as the characters' lives progress and it is good to read them in order.

Dependable

I love this series, the characters are really brought to life. I didn't enjoy this quite as much as some of the earlier books as I got a bit muddled with the connection between some of the characters but it was still very enjoyable.
