A gripping read, if a bit gruesome in parts!
on 6 July 2016
This is the second book in the Anna Travis series, which follows a young detective starting out in her career. If you have not read any of these books before, I would suggest you start with the first, Above Suspicion, as this lays out the back story of Anna and how she came to be in the police force and also her on/off relationship with her boss, James Langton.
Like the first book this story follows a murder investigation, this time of a young woman which bears striking similarities to the infamous Black Dahlia murder in the 1940s. I should warn you that the description of what happened is quite gruesome in parts and even though I have read plenty of these types of books, I did find some of the descriptions a bit hard to stomach. Other than that it is a gripping read with a fantastic story which meant a lot of late nights as I could not put the book down.
Highly recommended read and will now be on to the next book in the series, Clean Cut
