Overview

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 Jillian Hillcrest mystery. As with all the novels in this series, it was inspired by a real California case.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Anthony Carbis
"'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."
"Chapters and Chats" and Goodreads - Jodi Hanson
�On Message� is a fast-paced, high octane thriller that takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride and keeps them guessing at the identity of the killer until the surprising reveal. The first book in the Jillian Hillcrest Mystery Series shows Joyce T. Strand knows how to write and will quickly stake her claim in the thriller genre.
Goodreads - Carl Brush
More than the plots and intrigue, though, On Message is about Jillian and her people--family, friends, neighbors--and their relationships.
Ruby's Books blog - Ruby's Books
"A mystery after my own heart. There are so many things I loved about this book I seriously don't know where to start"
Goodreads - Nancy N/A
"I enjoyed ON MESSAGE, right from the attention-grabbing, funny, first page"

Joyce received her Ph.D. from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. ; and her B.A. from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA.
