‘An exhilarating watch’ – the Times
‘More please’ – the Telegraph
DC Anna Travis is back, reunited with the inimitable DCI James Langton, to face her most challenging and terrifying case yet. When the body of a young woman is discovered by the Thames, sadistically mutilated and drained of blood, it would seem an ominous re-enactment of the infamously unsolved murder, from 1940s Los Angeles, dubbed the Black Dahlia.
