The first three books in Jill McGown's classic crime series, featuring Detective Inspector Lloyd and Sergeant Judy Hill

A Perfect Match The news that a woman's body has been found in a boathouse rocks the town of Stansfield. The case appears simple: her last known companion, and the prime suspect, is currently missing, presumed fled. But Detective Inspector Lloyd, teamed up with former colleague Sergeant Judy Hill, isn't so quick to jump to conclusions . . . in a murder inquiry, you can't rule anyone out.

Redemption: Deepening snow slowly isolates the village of Byford from the outside world, but the calm of the festive period is destroyed by what appears to be a domestic murder at the vicarage. As Lloyd struggles to keep control of his relationship with Hill, he finds more than he bargained for in this complex and perplexing mystery.

Death of a Dancer: Lloyd and Hill find themselves caught up once again in a harrowing murder investigation. The victim is the wife of a deputy headmaster of a boys' public school, but they rapidly discover that she was not the upstanding teacher's wife that appearances suggest. As the mystery thickens, the list of suspects for her murder grows appallingly long . . .

Impeccable plotting, alibi- and clue-weaving - an accomplished story that touches the heart
A spellbinding storyteller . . . persuasive and engaging.
