Shadow Play: A British Police Procedural (Bill Slider, #20)
Shadow Play: A British Police Procedural... Shadow Play: A British Police Procedural (Bill Slider, #20) - Cynthia Harrod-Eagles 3, 5 stars

Had I known that Shadow Play was the book#20 in the series, I would have never requested it - I prefer to read my series from the very beginning and in the right order. Besides, I’ve recently made some negative experience with the sequels that were parts of a series and shouldn’t be read as a stand-alone.

Surprise-surprise! Shadow Play COULD be read as a stand-alone. I think though, I could have enjoyed it much more, had I had more time to create a stronger emotional connection to the characters. To board the series at the book #20 is very optimistic. And of course it is difficult to be on the same level with those readers who got to know the characters from the birth. Nevertheless, I would say, the structure of the plot gives you a good opportunity to enter the story at any book.

What I enjoyed here mostly is the team work. They are not just good colleagues that worked successful together, they all good friends. There is no a MAIN CHARACTER in the usual sense of it or how one could expect from the series with the name of a team leader in the title. Bill Slider doesn’t dominate this installment, and I'm not sure he DID it before.
I had a lot of fun with the guys there. The investigation was interesting and not predictable, only it turned out to be a little bit too real estate/construction loaded for my taste.


Not a WOW mystery, but well-written, solid and entertaining through and through. I mostly enjoyed the dialogues, cheery banter and British humor.

PS. BTW, observation cameras in London is not a bad invention.

Heavy Stuff
Slide (Roads) - Garrett Leigh

Oh my, SLIDE was a powerful, heavy read from the very start. Pete the EMS man is completely and wholeheartedly in love with Ash. Pete is not perfect but he does the best he can with what he's got. Ash is what I would describe as a unanchored, lost young man. The only reason he hasn't floated away on vapors of some unknown nightmare is because of the compassion of most of the secondary characters and Pete. These two MCs are already an established couple when we meet them. I would say to anyone who's interested in read SLIDE, do read it but make sure you're in the mood for the weight of this story.

Slide - Garrett Leigh
Slide is a story about two young adult men becoming roommates and then falling for each other. It's just their day-to-day work and living basically, but it speaks to me on such a profound level. The way it is written made me feel like I was really in their heads. The phrase Still Waters Run Deep comes to mind when I think of this book and of Ash's character.

Both Ash and Pete are bisexual. Both are functioning adults for the most part, but neither is really settled in life, especially Ash. I was so drawn to them both. I think Ash will have a piece of my heart forever. I wanted to wrap him up and make him feel safe. (Following sentence might be considered a spoiler) –> When Ash was found on the streets, and the truth about him being sick and turning to no one came out, it broke my heart.

My emotions have been thoroughly worked over. They need each other, and I need more of them, so I'm definitely on to book 2.
