    I m still trying to figure out why I feel so indifferent about this book I usually love British mysteries I think it may be because I read so many outstanding series Susan Hill, Louise Penny, Tana French, Arnaldur Indridason And I ve never read any of Jill McGown s books and this was the 13th in her Lloyd and Hill mystery series There were several references to a past that I was not familiar with There was a wide cast of characters and a complicated plot that I kept losing interest in I I m still trying to figure out why I feel so indifferent about this book I usually love British mysteries I think it may be because I read so many outstanding series Susan Hill, Louise Penny, Tana French, Arnaldur Indridason And I ve never read any of Jill McGown s books and this was the 13th in her Lloyd and Hill mystery series There were several references to a past that I was not familiar with There was a wide cast of characters and a complicated plot that I kept losing interest in I think I m going to give up on Jill McGown and read the next Chief Inspector Gamache novel by Louise Penny

    A good entry into the Lloyd Hill series..but not one of the best The story concerns the seemingly unconnected murders which began as a suspected mugging for the bingo winnings of a local woman Twomurders follow and there seems to be a connection to the gambling halls owned by one of the characters Enter an insufferable television journalist whose claim to fame is the capture of a serial killer several years previous He stirs up the proceedings and attempts to convince Lloyd and Hill A good entry into the Lloyd Hill series..but not one of the best The story concerns the seemingly unconnected murders which began as a suspected mugging for the bingo winnings of a local woman Twomurders follow and there seems to be a connection to the gambling halls owned by one of the characters Enter an insufferable television journalist whose claim to fame is the capture of a serial killer several years previous He stirs up the proceedings and attempts to convince Lloyd and Hill that he should be consulted as an expert Then the letters begin to arrive and nothing is as it appears.The motive for the murders is a bit convoluted although you might be able to spot the killer There are many strands to this murder mystery which tend to muddle the narrative..but it is a tidy tale in this excellent series

    The first third of the book could only be described as plodding Characters were a but one dimensional The action picked up a bit to it s complicated and unlikely end Although not a stellar book I would consider reading another of the series, maybe earlier books weredynamic.


  6. Jane Jane says:

    This last book in the excellent Lloyd and Hill series is not one of the best it s kind of draggy in the middle but I m sorry my re read of all 13 has come to an end I highly recommend the series to fans of British police procedurals.
