Clean Cut (Anna Travis Mysteries)by Lynda La Plante
Synopses & Reviews
Dedicated, intuitive, and utterly obsessive, DCI James Langton is ruthless in his pursuit of a gang of illegal immigrants, the murderers of a young prostitute. When one of them nearly kills him, Anna Travis nurses his wounds and bears the brunt of his frustrations, putting her own life and career on hold. But then one of Anna's own cases — the seemingly motiveless murder of a quiet, studious woman — turns out to be linked with Langton's, and Anna becomes the gang's next target. As USA Today wrote of La Plante's Above Suspicion, "There is no sugarcoating on this 100-proof police procedural."
La Plante's growing legions of fans will not be disappointed.
"In La Plante's solid third police procedural to feature London Det. Insp. Anna Travis (after 2007's The Red Dahlia), Anna's lover and superior, Det. Chief Insp. Jimmy Langton, is knifed while investigating the murder of a young prostitute. As Anna helps him recuperate, Jimmy becomes obsessed with catching his assailant, rumored to be Clinton Camorra, a notorious drug trafficker and voodoo practitioner. Anna discovers another link to Camorra's gang of illegal immigrants in one of her own murder cases, the apparently motiveless killing of a woman by Arthur George Murphy, who also practices voodoo. After Arthur's sister and niece are murdered and another niece and nephew disappear, Anna suspects that not only is Camorra behind the crimes but that she may be the next target. Though her stance on illegal immigration is sometimes too strident for the story to support, La Plante has created another damaged heroine almost as appealing as her inimitable Jane Tennison." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
From the internationally bestselling novelist and the creator of television's hit series "Prime Suspect" comes this hard-hitting new police procedural featuring detective Anna Travis and her supervisor/lover James Langton.
