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.Â Â 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.
