Surprising everyone but himself, Langton comes roaring back to duty with a vengance intent on finding those who were involved in his near-death. Anna is surprised when he asks her to join his case.
In creating Anna, author Lynda La Plante plays the damaged heroine card with great success. With all her flaws, it is not difficult to understand and empathize with the myriad situations Anna finds herself involved, many times due to her own actions and reactions to what is happening around her.
The storyline is strong and the pacing steady. Along the way, there are plenty of surprises including a shocking ending that no one will see coming. La Plante is superb in laying out a quite gruesome plot and following the course of the investigation.
Fans will look forward to the next installment for further updates in the Travis/Langton relationship. Thankfully, La Plante continues to provide new stories in this marvelous series.
Clean Cut: An Anna Travis Mystery (Anna Travis Mysteries)
As developed by author Lynda Plante, Anna becomes a sympathetic figure even though I found myself wondering what she really sees in him other than some sexual attraction. Why doesn't she see how he is really using her? Early on you catch on to the fact that the killings, which are the main focus of the detective story, must be related to Langdon' suspicions and will ultimately lead to finding not only the killer but Langdon's assailant. In the process the police procedurals are spelled out in such detail, you are likely to feel as I did, they cause the book to lose some of its appeal. Nontheless, I recommend the book as a good read especially if you have enjoyed other Laplante stories.
