From award-winning author Lynda La Plante comes the latest detective story involving Anna Travis, who must juggle old and new love affairs while tracking down one of the world’s deadliest drug dealers.

Ruthless drug trafficker Alexander Fitzpatrick is one of the most wanted men in the Western hemisphere. But for ten years, there’s been no sign of him. Is he dead, or just trying to appear that way? When an ex-colleague from the murder squad is found shot in a dank drug den, Anna Travis is pulled into the case. She’s grateful for the distraction after her breakup with DCI Langton, and soon finds herself involved with someone new.

But as the bodies pile up and the mystery deepens, Travis and Langton must put aside their personal history and work together to track down one of the shrewdest criminals they’ve ever encountered.

Good Page Turner...

Always loved Prime Suspect so this was my first La Plant mystery and it was great. Plot was intricate, characters are juicy and flawed! To me, Helen Mirren is Jane Tennison so I'd very much like to see the Above Suspicion series based on the Anna Travis character.

Lots of twists and turns. With a bevy of characters that although they seem not connected and are joined in a mix of murder and drug trafficking. Another great book by Lynda La Plante. This one has a cliffhanger!!
