This is the 7th book in the Anna Travis series by author Lynda La Plante. After reading the last 6 books in the series and thoroughly enjoying them I have to admit I was a little disappointed by this one. It almost felt like it was written by a different author all together, all the characters were t Leggi tutto
I'm not sure which of the following things is true. 1) I did not read an uncorrected proof, but instead read an uncorrected first draft; 2) I read an uncorrected proof, and there is an editor who should be deeply, deeply ashamed; or 3) I read an uncorrected proof, of which the first draft was so dre Leggi tutto
Disappointing. I was in the mood for a good murder mystery when I picked it up, and the premise of a murder without a body sounded pretty fascinating. But the entire book is just the characters endlessly having the same conversation over and over and over again. How many times did Travis talk to Tin Leggi tutto

This is my 3rd novel by this author and in some ways it was my favorite one so far. I liked the opening hook. It had me. There were also some unexpected shifts in the plot that felt nicely done.

Lynda La Plante, author of Prime Suspect, is a brilliant crime writer. Having said that, this wasn't one of her best. I think sometimes writers must get a little weary of their characters (this is the seventh in a series featuring Detective Anna Travis). Although expertly crafted, the book just felt Leggi tutto
Slow as balls
This book (the seventh installment in the series) kind of felt like a reset, which I guess is inevitable when you get seven books into a series. As always, Anna proves her abilities as a detective as James Langton watches from afar. Romantically, I feel La Plante laying the groundwork for a renewed r Leggi tutto
I was going to give this book three stars but as Goodreads ratings system for four stars is 'really liked it' and that is how I felt about the book, that's the rating I will give it. It took me ages to get into this book, and probably only after about 200 pages did I get into the story and actually c Leggi tutto
