Summary

Detective Anna Travis is investigating the brutal murder of a young woman whose body was discovered in the Thames, brutalised and severed in half, a red flower in her hair.

With the case bearing an eerie resemblance to the famous unsolved murder case of Elizabeth Short—known as the Black Dahlia—media interest intensifies, and fears of a copycat take hold. But with almost no clues, the case is slowly going cold. That is until the killer reaches out to the press....

Determined to solve the case, Anna must keep her wits about her before the sadistic killer takes his next victim.

Good story but exasperating

My problem with this book and the previous one was that Langton, Anna’s boss was such a boorish bloody rude bully yet Anna was hopelessly in his thrall, in love with him. The other problem with both books was the brainless and unprofessional way she spilled the beans on the cases to people who were fishing for information. For an intelligent woman she was pretty clueless. Frankly it stretched credulity. I like Lynda La Plante’s writing but I don’t think I can take another in this series.
