It's three days before Christmas, and the Malworth Amateur Dramatic Society's rehearsal of Cinderella, scripted by GP Carl Bignall, is struggling thanks to a flu epidemic that has hit the production.

But as rehearsals finally get under way at the Riverside Theatre, the police across town are entering Carl's house - and discovering the body of his wife, Estelle . . .

Why was Carl so late for rehearsal? Why is Dr Bignall's neighbour so reluctant to tell the truth about what he witnessed? And why is Dr Denis Leeward, Carl's partner, sitting in his car, slightly bruised and in a state of guilty panic?

All Detective Chief Inspector Lloyd knows for sure, as he takes charge of the investigation, is that one of them is a murderer . . .

Northamptonshire, with her family when she was ten, where she lived until her death in 2007. Coincidentally, at Corby Grammar School in the early sixties, her Latin teacher was Colin Dexter, long before Inspector Morse was policing Oxford.

Jill is best known for her mystery series featuring Chief Inspector Lloyd and Sergeant Judy Hill, the first of which, A Perfect Match, was published in 1983. Murder at the Old Vicarage, is the second Lloyd and Hill book of the thirteen novels in the series. She adopted the classic traditions of the genre, but brought a modern twist through her characters and situations, her peers believe her work deserves to be better known.
