"On Message: A Jillian Hillcrest Mystery," by Joyce Strand

The first in the Jillian Hillcrest mystery series, inspired by true California cases.

On Message: A Jillian Hillcrest Mystery, by Joyce Strand

"'On Message' takes the reader into a corporate world where everything seems perfectly organised, until someone rocks that world and the lives of the people who inhabit it. Joyce Strand's insight into the life of Jillian Hillcrest, who is the central character, is comprehensively displayed in this intriguing story of greed and betrayal. Jillian truly realises the importance of friendship, as she is inevitably drawn in to the unravelling nightmare that is taking place. The book contains a moral message, which, for me, is a testament to its title. I am very much looking forward to Joyce Strand's next novel." -- Amazon reviewer

Murder intrudes on PR Executive Jillian Hillcrest's routine as head communications executive at a small Silicon Valley biotechnology company. She is eagerly staying on message to inform investors, the media and the community about her company and its products. When someone near to her is murdered, a determined San Francisco police inspector involves her in the investigation, convinced she is key to solving the crime. She co-operates fully only to find that solving a murder is more hazardous than writing press releases. On Message is the first in the Jillian Hillcrest mystery series. As with all the novels in this series, it was inspired by a real California case.
