Publisher's Summary

When a local man, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, goes missing, his parents have good reason to be concerned. Emily Willows is a friend of the family and says that she knows just the person to find him - and, as Summer Lane soon points out, the fact that this also fits in with Emily's plan to set up her very own detective agency is surely just a fortuitous coincidence.

But it isn't long before the former detective inspector finds herself on a train heading back to London, and back into situations that she thought she had left behind. Some old acquaintances are renewed, and some difficult memories must be confronted as Lane searches for the missing soldier and discovers the shocking truth about what happened to him five years earlier.

Where is this series going?

ONE-WAY TICKETS is the second novel in the Willows and Lane series; I really liked the first novel in the series and I am a fan of all of the novels in Peter Grainger's DC Smith detective series. In this novel the wealthy mid-50 age banker's widow Emily Willows and and thirtyish former all-star cop Summer Lane take on their first case in their new private detective agency. The novel lost me at some point.

I Like this new series

I enjoyed this second book in the series. Peter Grainger is an excellent writer and the narrator is good . I was worried with the “A Case for Willows and Lane” description these might be going down the Cosy mystery route but not at all in fact the other main Character Willows was hardly in it . The book deals with the aftermath of war on the soldiers who return and crime and its effects on immigrant families in London . I have made it sound a bit grim but it was an excellent listen I look forward to the next installment.

This is a terrific new series

I love Peter Grainger's writing, and DC Smith. I was very hesitant about a new series where one of the characters would be a Cornish widow of means. As it turns out, Emily Willows is made of stern stuff. Summer Lane is a bit more of a stereotype - damaged but immensely strong woman searching for a new raison d'etre. But somehow it all works. The first two books in this were very satisfying and I look forward to more
