Which is the odd one out: An ex-call girl wife of a wealthy crook, who has kept one step ahead of the law, a struggling artist married to Stansfield's prospective Conservative party candidate, or the telephone line which links them? Answer: the telephone line. It isn't dead. A double murder investigation brings Chief Inspector Lloyd and the newly promoted Inspector Judy Hill together again as colleagues. But the case is a severe test of both Judy's professionalism and Lloyd's ego, and soon threatens their more private relationship . . .
Selected by The Times (London) as one of the twentieth century’s “100 Masters of Crime,” Jill McGown writes mystery-suspense novels with plots that defy second-guessing. In Unlucky for Some, her thirteenth book featuring Detective Chief Inspectors Lloyd and Hill, the quiet life of an English town scarcely conceals the deadly menace lurking around dark corners and within the human mind. Michael Waterman is a self-made millionaire. His casinos and nightclubs ensure a constant flow of cash, and Waterman knows what he needs to do to keep it that way. So far, it seems, he has stayed on the right side of the law. Certainly, no one seriously suspects him of murdering bingo player Wilma Fenton, who was struck down while walking home with a purse crammed full of winnings. Her murder looks like an ordinary mugging except for one oddity: The killer had left Wilma’s money neatly fanned out across her body. The motive behind the bafflingly violent act dogs Lloyd and Hill– now married and the harried parents of a two-year-old daughter. The stakes are raised with a second murder, modeled on the first . . . and then a third. A cold-blooded killer is challenging not only the police but the one witness to the first slaying: England’s premier expert on serial crime, well-known journalist and TV personality, Tony Baker. It has now become a twisted game of madness and logic–in which failure to outwit the murderer means more senseless deaths. In this astonishing Lloyd and Hill novel, Jill McGown’s storytelling genius will captivate longtime fans as well as first-time readers. Unlucky for Some is lucky for all admirers of virtuoso suspense writing. From the Hardcover edition.
Real-life crime has engulfed the domestic life of the Riverside Theatre players. For starters, there’s the violent death of Estelle Bignall, the beautiful, neurotic wife of a well-to-do doctor (and aspiring resident playwright). In truth, suicide seemed more Estelle’s line—especially during the Christmas holidays—but a thief saved her the trouble, stealing all the presents and leaving her bound, gagged, and suffocated. Instinct tells Detective Chief Inspectors Lloyd and Judy Hill that Estelle’s murder is far more complicated. At the crime scene there are too many footprints, too many fingerprints, too much conflicting evidence—and too many suspects: an elusive burglar, a sinister next-door neighbor, the victim’s secret lover, a scared kid with fresh bruises on his face. But which of them was desperate enough to commit murder? From the Paperback edition.

And, somewhere in Stansfield, Melissa Whitworth was just beginning to discover the truth about her husband . . .

Heiligabend im englischen Örtchen Byford: Schnee rieselt leise und beharrlich auf das Dorf herab, in den festlich geschmückten Häusern prasseln die Kamine – doch die weihnachtliche Idylle wird jäh gestört. Noch in der Nacht erhält die Polizistin Judy Hill einen Anruf von ihrem Chef, Hauptkommissar Lloyd: Im alten Pfarrhaus wurde ein Mann gefunden, brutal mit dem Schürhaken erschlagen. Bei dem Toten handelt es sich um Graham Elstow, den Schwiegersohn des Pfarrers George Wheeler. Der Geistliche gibt sich – wie auch seine Gattin Marian und die gemeinsame Tochter Joanna – ahnungslos. Doch bald schon finden die Ermittler heraus, dass das Mordopfer ein gewalttätiger Tyrann war und dass jedes der Familienmitglieder Gründe hatte, ihn bis aufs Blut zu hassen.
