About this title

Synopsis:

Jill McGown's subtle and compelling mysteries depict men and women whose dance to the music of passion sometimes leads to murder. In Verdict Unsafe, McGown once again evokes the gritty East Midlands inhabited by Detective Inspector Judy Hill and her supervisor and lover, Detective Chief Inspector Lloyd. But this time, Judy's career, her relationship with Lloyd, and even her life are imperiled by the whims of an arrogant young predator.

Four young women. Four horrific rapes. Committed by a man who calls himself the "Stealth Bomber." Colin Arthur Drummond--a privileged young man from Malworth--now stands accused of these crimes. And watching his trial from the public gallery, Detective Inspector Judy Hill cannot forget his chilling description of a fifth unreported rape. Or his threat that she is to be his sixth victim.

In court Drummond denies all charges, his lawyer, "Hotshot" Harper claiming police corruption and brutality.  But the prosecution has an open-and-shut case: he had been caught in the act by two independent witnesses, and they have a DNA profile that proves he is the rapist. What could go wrong?

Something does. For sixteen months later, Colin Drummond is out on the streets, threatening Judy again. And as Judy sets out to prove his guilt for the second time--and save her own job--Detective Chief Inspector Lloyd is called to a horrifying scene. It appears Colin Drummond has picked his next victim. . . .

As always in a Jill McGown novel, nothing is simple. And no one is safe.

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
