Overview

Still reeling from the death of her fiance, Detective Anna Travis has thrown herself into her new role as the chief inspector for London's murder squad. When Scotland Yard's missing persons bureau is unable to locate the son of a court employee, the superintendent--James Langton, Anna's former lover turned sometimes friend--urges her to take on the suspicious assignment.

But is this new investigation purely a missing persons case--or a full-blown murder inquiry? An ominous pool of blood with no locatable victim leads Anna on a desperate hunt for a man who has disappeared without a trace. With no body, and increasing pressure to make an arrest, Anna becomes obsessed with the smallest details of the case. Now, one man has vanished, a killer may be loose on the streets, and, as Langton looks on, Anna Travis may be losing control of the investigation--and of herself.

La Plante’s well-crafted seventh Anna Travis novel (after 2011’s Blood Fury) finds the London detective chief inspector looking into a missing person case. Evidence of a pool of blood is discovered directly under the bed of 26-year-old car mechanic Alan Rawlins, who lived with his attractive fiancé, Tina Brooks, but there’s no body and no identifiable DNA. Travis and her team must investigate Rawlins’s character and context in lieu of anything more concrete. As they dig deeper, the image of the hardworking, straitlaced Rawlins is replaced by one of a hard-living gay surfer. Several credible suspects emerge, and, in a nice twist, the identity of the victim comes into question. A lively plot and a number of satisfying revelations offset the leisurely denouement. La Plante’s habit of revealing a little too much about earlier cases or books may frustrate readers who are joining the series late. Agent: Gill Coleridge, Rogers, Coleridge & White. (Sept.)
