I really enjoyed this book. It centres on a young Detective Sergeant, Anna Travis, who gets involved in a hunt for a serial killer. Anna finds herself getting drawn further into the case, but has to make sure that she does not screw up, as a lot rests on the outcome.
The tension builds up quickly, and this is a real page-turner, very pacey with lots of twists and turns. It was the first book I had read by this author, and I have already acquired the next book in the series.
My only – very slight – complaint is that there was a romantic subplot, which I thought was unnecessary, but this did not really detract from my enjoyment.
Travis is a very likeable and believable heroine, and I found myself rooting for her at every turn. This book has ‘tv adaptation’ written all over it!
