It is a late night on a notorious high-rise estate in Hackney, and a white van is being driven erratically. The driver is pulled over by the police and questioned.
A woman is found on the street after a long evening's drinking. She never makes it home.
A suspect...an arrest...a confession.... Is it a case done and dusted?
Five years earlier, a 13-year-old girl disappeared in broad daylight on a busy London street. DCS James Langton headed the investigation; the case was never closed. It has haunted him ever since. And now comes another confession to this murder and to one more, besides.
Is it too good to be true? DCI Anna Travis, pulled into the fray, isn't so sure that they have their man. Then the suspect changes his story....

I have thouroughly enjoyed listening to this book from the pen of Ms La Plante. Kim Hicks' narration was very good for the most part and bought many of the characters to life once you got past some of her rather ropey accents, the cockney (not great) and the faux 'Jamaican' accent (haven't laughed so much it was so bad). I found it to be an excellent installment in the lives of Anna Travis, Langton, Lewis, Barolli and the rest of the team. Looking forward to the next one.
Cant stop reading anywhere and everywhere
Again the narration is far from good so takes from the story but I really enjoyed this one right from the beginning scenes to the end. I couldn't put it down and finished it quite quickly. I really got into the characters this time and was interested throughout. Highly recommended.
Both are good but the audio version made such jobs as the ironing go so much quicker.
DS Langton, feisty, rude but clever.
I found it a tense but really enjoyable thriller.
i didnt care about anyone in this book the female lead was annoying and everyone else was blah.
the narrator was fine
Classic La Plante and a gripping, easy listen. The Anna Travis series works brilliantly on audio - the writing is pretty spare but the characterisation and police procedural detail is excellent. The last Anna Travis I listened to was abridged and I really felt that too much detail was missing. This is crime perfection.
"another Linda Le Plante masterpiece"
Typical Linda Le Plante
The Quarry exploration and consequence escape
Anna Travis' personal investigation that led to the identity of the unknown victim found at the quarry
I would if I could, it was a bit too long for that.
the narrator was excellent. She had different voices for each different character and each was easily identified without having to be told
