4.0 out of 5 stars Last Rites............, 11 April 2007

This review is from: Unlucky for Some (Paperback)
I believe this was Jill's last work before she died. I envy those coming to her oeuvre for the first time for as someone once said about M.R James's horror stories, they will enjoy a gifted, underated, entertaining and talented writer of detective fiction.

In this area of writing, some authors excel at plot and others at dialogue. Jill is special in both contexts. She is amusing in dialogue and intriguing in plotting.

Her stories usually involve two detectives known as Lloyd and Hill who are romantically linked and whose relationship is neatly woven in to the plots.

I would normally award five stars to all her works but I feel that this particular effort is not to her usual supremely high standard. It still deserves purchase however as it is a superior tale.

You will be missed Jill. RIP.
