A Landmark Mystery!

this story has everything a totally absorbing story needs---credible but always unexpected plot twists, wonderfully human characters fighting their demons, and great narration with one minor exception. The voices of two minor characters are not well done; come across as mushy. Anna Travis is an exceptionally competent detective in this series. This is one of the best police procedurals written today.

A true murder mystery

LA Plante knows how to write murder mysteries. They hold your attention until the last sentence of the last paragraph. Hicks makes the story come alive. She makes it authentic.
