Publisher's Summary

London's Detective Chief Inspector Anna Travis must decide where her loyalties lie, duty to the job or personal ambition, in this masterful tale of suspense from the award-winning, international best-selling author of the Prime Suspect series - one of today's finest crime writers, alongside such talents as Sophie Hannah, Ruth Rendell, Kate Atkinson, and Ian Rankin.

Six months ago, London nightclub owner Josh Reynolds was found dead. Ruled a suicide, the police investigation was closed. Then a young man, awaiting trial for armed robbery, tells his guards that Reynolds was murdered and that he has information to share.

DCI Anna Travis is scheduled to leave for training at Quantico, as part of an exchange between the Met and the FBI. But before she can leave, she's got to review the case, thanks to her boss, DCS James Langton. Joining her team is senior FBI agent and crime scene expert Jessie Dewar.

The American's brash manner quickly ruffles feathers throughout the Met, and what should have been a simple matter of tying up loose ends becomes a political powder keg when the competence of the original investigation team is challenged. Suddenly, Anna is faced with a dangerous choice. Will she close ranks to protect her people or push to find the truth, no matter what the consequences?

    "Disappointing"

    I usually like Lynda LaPlante's novels but found this one disappointing. Too many sub plots - all over the place going nowhere most of the time. The last chapters were particularly tedious...

    I enjoy international mysteries, appreciate great fiction with strong characters and the occasional inspirational or humorous book.

    "Complex and intriguing"

    A fast paced story that kept me guessing who did what to whom.
    The characters reminded me how people are rarely what they seem.

    "Impossible to listen to horrible American accent"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    My complaint isn't with the book, which I didn't finish. That I didn't finish wasn't because of the writer, but because of the narrator. Her jarring version of an "American" accent was so poor -- and annoying -- I gave up in chapter one. I appreciate La Plante's other work, so would have liked to hear the book. But whoever made the decision to employ a narrator with absolutely no ear for accents made a mistake; it ruined the experience of what might be a good mystery.

    "Thrilling"

    Hay my interest from the beginning. Could not put it down. Engaging characters flaws and all. I will listen to all of the series I can get.
