Blood Line (Paperback)
Award-winning and international bestselling author Lynda La Plante brings back her popular series character, London Detective Chief Inspector Anna Travis of the Murder Squad, to work a seventh case in Blood Line. La Plante, who bestselling crime fiction author Karin Slaughter (Blindsided) says -practically invented the thriller, - is best known for her Prime Suspect novels, the basis for the wildly popular BBC series starring Helen Mirren and a recent U.S. incarnation featuring Maria Bello. In Blood Line, Anna takes on a high profile missing person investigation which might well develop into the hunt for a murderer, especially when a pool of blood is discovered but no body. Crime fiction fans who appreciate a good cop and a good murder--especially Ian Rankin, Ruth Rendell, Elizabeth George, Peter Robinson, and Val McDermid readers--will be eagerly following the trail of evidence every step of the way.
“Fun, fearsome and fiercely independent.”
“Lynda La Plante practically invented the thriller.”
-Karin Slaughter, author of Fallen and Broken
““Well-crafted. . . . A lively plot and a number of satisfying revelations. . . .”
