    • Kenneth Knowles: 11:03Description: Constant gossip, endless secrets, nonstop rumors-these everyday elements of high-school life prove nearly impenetrable obstacles for Detective Chief Inspector Lloyd and Inspector Judy Hill of the Stansfield Police as they try solve the murder of a teenaged girl in this leisurely but compelling story. Natalie Ouspensky is a precocious 15-year-old with a host of gregarious friends, a fine school record and, apparently, a secret life. When her strangled corpse is [...]


    • Threw in the towel at roughly 75%, which speaks volumes on how boring the mystery was. Shred had an interesting premise, but it was buried under loose ends and gossipd the adult cops were more gossipy than the teenagers they were investigating. In the end it was a waste of a perfectly good plot. Ah well.


    • #7 Lloyd & Hill British police procedural mystery. It had been over 2 years since I read a book in this series, since I was very disappointed in #6, which went backward and forward in time, was bloated and boring and featured long portions that were written from the POV of the suspects/players in the mystery. It just didn't work for me at all, and was a huge shock after the previously stellar books. Every author's allowed one stinker I guess, and this one gets things back on track.A fifteen- [...]



    • Colin Cochrane, handsome coach, gets a few disturbing anonymous letters. His wife begins to wonder about his fidelity. Meanwhile, Patrick Murray, begins to teach at the same school. His wife knows he is not faithful. When 15-year-old Natalie is found strangled in the park, Chief DI Lloyd and DI Hill begin to suspect someone at the school did it. Their investigation uncovers many suspicious characters and actions.Well-written. Has some disturbing imagery, but overall fairly good story.


    • It is a shock for DI Judy Hill when the young girl who has been murdered in a local adventure playground turns out to be one of the girls she had seen laughing and joking with her friends on the bus home from school that afternoon. This is a harrowing story of misunderstandings and predatory behaviour by people who really should know better.A minor celebrity athlete, Colin Cochrane, teaches at the school that the victim herself attended and there is all sorts of gossip doing the rounds about how [...]


    • This book started off with a bang, I was engaged from the second page and really excited about the story. Unfortunately, it really started to lag about 2/3 of the way through. Even though it wasn't very long, it felt longer as we led up to the conclusion and then the red herrings flew so fast and thick it got a bit aggravating.I liked the story better than I liked the detectives, Judy seemed a bit bland and Lloyd a but dull, Tim Finch was the most agreeable of the bunch. I didn't realize this wa [...]


    • This was the first book by this author that I have read and I only found it when I was messing around with the GR readers also enjoyed feature from another books main page.This murder mystery, set in England, revolves around the investigation of the murder of a teenage school girl. Lots of people come under suspicion when it is discovered that she reportedly had written torrid love letters to one of the teachers whose wife actually is the one to stumble across the crime scene.It was a good book [...]


    • Very good mystery. I really liked the characters. This is the 7th book in the series but was the 1st one I was able to get on the Phila. Library Website. They have a few more later ones which I will definitely read. I'm thinking about purchasing maybe the first couple on for a penny (and $3.99 shipping costs). I read most of my books on the Kindle because they don't take up room. Hard to have enough storage for books. But if someone is looking for a series (British), I would definitely recommen [...]


    • I have long been a fan of Jill McGown and her series featuring Hill and Lloyd. This was a good one, with lots of twists and turns. As always Judy Hill's meticulous note-taking provides an invaluable clue to solving the nasty murders.
