Overview

When the body of a young woman is discovered close to a highway service station, Detective Inspector Anna Travis is brought on to the team of investigators by her former lover and boss, Detective Chief Superintendent Langton. As more evidence is uncovered, the team realizes that they are contending with a triple murder investigation—and no suspect.

But then a murderer Anna helped arrest years ago makes contact from prison. Cameron Welsh insists that he can help track down the killer, but he will divulge his secrets only to Anna herself. Does he really have an insight into another criminal’s mind, or is he merely intent on getting into hers?

The team soon realizes that they are dealing with a killer whose deviousness has enabled him to commit horrific crimes, yet remain undetected for years. As the case draws to a close, Welsh’s obsession for Anna fuels a terrifying rage that will have disastrous consequences for Anna, who finds herself staring into the face of a desperate personal tragedy.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When an unidentified woman is discovered raped and murdered at a service station off the M1 motorway in La Plante's gripping sixth novel featuring London Det. Insp. Anna Travis (after Silent Scream), Anna and her team fear it's the work of the same person who murdered both another unidentified woman and prostitute Margaret Potts. Anna has little to go on until Cameron Welsh, a sadistic killer Anna helped convict years earlier, contacts her from prison and promises he can help solve the case. She reluctantly agrees to meet—despite Welsh's interest in the case being a thinly veiled attempt to get close to her—while pursuing any lead to try and identify the nameless victims. Hovering in the background is Anna's former lover, Det. Chief Supt. James Langton, who arrives to supervise the case, which grows increasingly complex as it builds to its violent climax. Now a more agile investigator, Anna has finally stepped clear of Langton's—and Jane Tennison's—shadow. (July)

“For those who love mysteries but wish Patricia Cornwell had a dirtier mind.” —Los Angeles Times, on Above Suspicion

“The quintessential police procedural, with a flawed heroine and enough dark twists to keep even the seasoned mystery fan off balance. A must for fans of British cop stories.” -Booklist

“This tear-away thriller will keep you awake at night, prying your closing eyes open with toothpicks, to get to the next clue.…A rip-roaring, can’t-put-it-down read.” –Suspense magazine
