left egar for the next Oct. 23 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Jill McGown is on the top ten list of my favorite authors and one of five whose books I'll pay full price for just to get my sweaty little palms on it that much faster. I've read reviews of Plots and Errors that critisize Ms. McGown for the fact that there is so little of the wonderful Lloyd and Hill relationship in this book and that the plot was too 'convoluted'. There is a part of me that agrees, but I think it is a problem more in the reader than in the book. I have been so looking forward to the possiblities inherent in the fact that there is a baby on the way, and all that Ms. McGown could do with this, that I was disappointed that this side plot had not moved very far forward. I believe, therefore, that any disappointment I felt with the book is based on that alone and will not be present the next time I read it. The author is a truly gifted storyteller and I highly recommed all of her works. A relationship in books, movies, and TV like that between Lloyd and Hill is rare indeed and would make me want to read about them even if there was not also a first class puzzler of a mystery included at no extra charge. I have always been particularly good at answering the question of 'who done it' and take a certain amount of pride in that fact, but I have yet to latch on to the killer in one of Ms. Mcgown books before she reveals him or her (or them) herself. I can't even claim that she cheats and doesn't let the reader in on all the clues, because she just flat out tells her readers 'who done it' and I still don't know until the end. If Ms. Mcgown should happen to read this review, I what to say thank you for many hours of pleasure and that I am looking forward to the next installment.

A Real Page-Turner! May 14 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I consider myself to be a serious devotee of the British mystery and I thought that I had read every plot scenario every devised for that genre until I read the latest devised by Jill McGown for Lloyd and Hill. Although the relationship between them is given very little attention, the dysfunctional Esterbrook family makes up for that shortcoming. Just when you think you have it figured out, she throws you another curve. I read continuously for seven hours and can honestly say that I haven't read a mystery I have enjoyed this much in a long time. Don't miss it!

Couldn't put it down! April 1 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I liked the twists in this one, although she almost lost me with the plot, within a plot, within a plot, within . . . Jill McGown just keeps getting better! My one complaint is that she did not further develop the Lloyd/Judy Hill affair, overtly anyway. But the subtle developments leaves me holding my breath for more. Soon, please!

A Little Too Much Maybe? May 12 2003
By Shirley Schwartz - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love Jill McGown's books and I'm a real fan of Lloyd and Hill, but this book is a bit too much. I really enjoyed the first half of the book, but it just got a bit too complicated with the plots and counterplots, blind and double-blind. This did take away from the story somewhat. In this book we have a lot of murders and it's up to Lloyd and Hill to try to connect them all and to determine motive and opportunity for each of them. At first a couple are found dead in their vehicle in their garage, apparently from suicide, but there are a number of "little Puzzles" about the deaths. Why are their groceries put away in the wrong cupboards, for example? Then there is another body - this time a very rich matriarch, found shot in her home. Lloyd and Hill, in their quest to find the killer encounter a truly disfunctional family and enough hate and animosity to sataisfy anyone looking for motive, but all is not as it seems. It just takes a little too long for the reader to get to the solution this time.

intriguing but eventually tiresome Oct. 29 2000
By Roxanne V. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I stumbled upon this book, not having heard of Jill McGown. But it was a happy accident. I'm not much of a fan of British police procedurals (too convoluted) but I was completely taken by this book, particularly her literary device of changing the timing in the various acts. It caught me by surprise, I didn't think I'd get into it and ended up fascinated. Unfortunately, by the last 1/4 of the book, I was tired of the plot twists and was reminded again of why I don't much like this genre.
