Description
Why was a local philanthropist murdered? Bill Slider investigates . . . A rare week off with his family is rudely interrupted when Slider is called in to investigate the murder of an elderly man, bashed on the head with a bronze statuette, in what Doc Cameron describes as 'our old friend the Frenzied Attack'. The murder comes - much to Slider's family's disgust - during his week off, saving him from the horrors of a trip to the shopping centre with his two older children. The late Mr Lionel Bygood, who looks, to all intents and purposes, like an old-fashioned sort of gentleman, has been bashed in the head with a bronze statue, in what Doc Cameron describes as 'our old friend the Frenzied Attack'. It soon emerges that Mr Bygood was a philanthropist, well-known locally for giving help and advice to all who needed it, from all walks of life. But with all signs pointing to the victim knowing his killer, Slider and his team find themselves embroiled in an investigation that provides scant evidence or possible motive, but all too many suspects . . .

display_description Why was a local philanthropist murdered? Bill Slider investigates . . .
A rare week off with his family is rudely interrupted when Slider is called in to investigate the murder of an elderly man, bashed on the head with a bronze statuette, in what Doc Cameron describes as 'our old friend the Frenzied Attack'.
Lionel Bygod, retired solicitor, was an old-fashioned gentleman, a pillar of society, who gave advice and help to all, from the highest to the lowest. But as Slider and his team investigate, they discover dark secrets at the heart of this mild and kindly man's life. Shadows from the past – professional enemies – long-incubated revenge: what was it that sparked such unquenchable fury? The trail is old and cold, and Slider's on the clock . . .
