Summary

Summary

A service station on the M1: dimly lit, run down, poorly supervised, flickering lights, dark corners; a favorite stopover for long-distance truck drivers on their way up north from London. Behind it, a body is found in a ditch, that of a girl barely out of her teens. She appears to have no family, no friends, no connections anywhere. Other girls have gone missing in the vicinity, and no one has stepped forward to claim them. Anna Travis is assigned to the case. Her blood runs cold when she receives a letter from a lifer—someone she was responsible for arresting in the past—who writes to her from prison, asking her to visit him urgently, for he claims he knows who the killer is...

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This is vintage La Plante: 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 (starred review)
“Gripping…Anna has finally stepped clear of Langton’s—and Jane Tennison’s—shadow.” Publishers Weekly
“Lynda La Plante practically invented the thriller.” Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author
“For those who love mysteries but wish Patricia Cornwell had a dirtier mind.” Los Angeles Times on Above Suspicion
