by Jill McGown

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.

Terrific story by Jill McGown. Edge of seat mystery story with lots of different characters and mysterious incidents leading to wide variety of scenarios.
Zeus Wooden
This is a decent mystery, very British, nicely told with too much reliance on passive voice. The book is a pleasant way to spend time by the fire. Read it.
Had to continue reading to find out what was going to happen next. Full of surprises. The ending seemed to happen very quickly.
Tried out a new author and glad I did. Great mystery writer.
Amazon wants eight more words but I'm done.
As usual McGown's book was a pleasure to read. T was full of suspense and twists. It was also warm and friendly with humor and characters you felt you knew.
interesting. i will read more of her books because i liked her main characters.
I enjoyed this story very much. I suspected some of the outcome but not all. Only negative i had a hard time keeping some good the characters, especially the police, straight.
Twists and turns and well developed characters.
