Publisher's Summary

A service station on the M1: dimly lit, run down, poorly supervised, flickering lights, dark corners; a favorite stopover for long-distance truck drivers on their way up north from London. Behind it, a body is found in a ditch, that of a girl barely out of her teens. She appears to have no family, no friends, no connections anywhere. Other girls have gone missing in the vicinity, and no one has stepped forward to claim them.

Anna Travis is assigned to the case. Her blood runs cold when she receives a letter from a lifer - someone she was responsible for arresting in the past - who writes to her from prison, asking her to visit him urgently, for he claims he knows who the killer is....

I wish you had the entire series!

What did you love best about Blind Fury?

The main character, she is very likable.

What did you like best about this story?

There were many twists & turns, I wasn't ever sure who the killer was until the end - kept me guessing. The character dialog has a very believable flow to it, the author's description of the feelings Ken & Anna have for each other was lovely.

Have you listened to any of Kim Hicks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, she's a terrific narrator.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not sure...

Any additional comments?

Please get the entire Anna Travis series, I'm hooked. Its awesome to be able to listen to a great book while working or driving!

captivating

I found this book to be very captivating. I enjoyed how the plot proceeded. I was never sure of who the killer actually was until near the end of the novel.

Slow & predictable

This is the second book in this series I’ve listened to & I’m done. Both books slog through procedure where I kept thinking, “get on with it.” Also, I was hoping the characters, who I thought might be a bit intriguing, would become more so. They didn’t. They’re pretty stiff and not really interesting.

The worst part, spoiler alert, was the death of Anna’s great love. I knew he was going to die at the hand of the inmate as soon as Anna started going crazy for him. It was all too pat. And then after that mess, Anna’s reaction to it just made me roll my eyes.

To me, the characters in a good book drive it. In this series you feel the author as puppeteer pushing the characters around her scenarios. Disappointing.

Narrator is good.

Very entertaining

A good easy story. No surprises but worth the time. Listened to it on car trip and everyone enjoyed it

Voices are annoying

I love the storylines however Barolli’s nasal and Ernest’s (sp) screaching voices are highly annoying

too much grunge

All about women being murdered and with a grand finale of a horrible ending - unnecessary. just for cheap macabre thrills. I do not recommend this book.

Rather dated

Too much irrelevant minutia. I got tired of hearing how much the main character was irritated by everything. Very dated verbal exchanges. I actually thought it had been written in the early 2000’s rather than 2011.
The tv series were an improvement on the books in my view

I struggled to finish

and didn't make it. It was exhausting. "I think we need to go back and interview them one more time..." Over and over until I didn't care and couldn't listen to another word. That, and the supposed clues she was following would make any real detective laugh his fanny off.

I’ve found another British series!

Author Lynda La Plante and narrator Kim Hicks are a perfect pair. I was lucky enough to get this in Audible Plus at no cost. I love my British detective series. Detective Inspector Anna Travis, along with her team, search for a calculating and dangerous serial killer. La Plante delivers suspenseful with superb writing, along with spot-on narrative by Hicks. Twists and turns, zigs and zags, surprises throughout. An ending I never saw coming {{{gasp}}}. I am looking forward to more from the Anna Travis Mystery Series. Recommended.
