Grim reality and intimations of immortality confront London detectives Slider and Atherton when they respond to the arson murder of a womanizing salesman. The victim, a deceptive man of failing business, marriage, and personal aspirations, serves as a foil to Slider (himself unhappily married) and ladies' man Atherton, who bounce theories off each other as they gather information and suspects. This sturdy follow-up to Orchestrated Death ( LJ 1/92) features realistic characters, dry wit, and surprising plot twists. See also the review of Harrod-Eagles's Fleur on p. 165.--Ed.
