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)
From the Publisher
"Gripping...Increasingly complex.” —PublishersWeekly.com

"Lynda La Plante practically invented the thriller." -Karin Slaughter, author of Broken

“Masterful writing, a superbly crafted plot, nail-biting suspense.” —Booklist (starred review), on Deadly Intent

“La Plante has created another damaged heroine almost as appealing as her inimitable Jane Tennison.” —Publishers Weekly, on Clean Cut

“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

    an excellent investigative tale

    An unknown female corpse is found at a gas station off the M1. The victim was raped before being murdered. Detective Inspector Anna Travis and her unit lead the investigation that appears to have been committed by the same predator that raped and murdered another unidentified woman and prostitute Margaret Potts.

    Vile killer Cameron Welsh, who Anna put away years ago, sends her a note insisting he can help her solve the apparent serial killer case. She doubts he has anything useful to offer and prefers not to visit this odious beast; but Anna decides to see what the imprisoned predator has to offer as the investigation is going nowhere including the inability to identify the dead. Meanwhile her former lover Detective Chief Superintendent James Langton takes charge of the complex inquiry.

    The latest Anna Travis British police procedural (see Silent Scream and Deadly Intent) is an excellent investigative tale, but not for readers who prefer story lines faster than the speed of light. Instead Blind Fury provides an incredibly detailed and profound methodical whodunit. Travis holds the investigation together as the prime focus of the plot; fans will recognize she has matured professionally to the point where she leads, but her personal life remains shaky at best as she makes poor choices.
