Summary

She's lost everything, except her life....

Lieutenant Lorraine Page once had everything - a devoted husband, two beautiful daughters and an impressive career with the Homicide Squad. It's impossible to believe that she could be thrown out of the police force and end up on Skid Row.

Without Lorraine, her colleagues struggle on, as the hunt for a nightmare serial killer spirals into an all-out search for a missing witness: a victim who escaped.

But Lorraine Page is about to be brought right back into that world again. Against her will she is drawn into the investigation and forced to face her past and her overwhelming guilt....

Based on a true story, the complete and unabridged Lorraine Page trilogy available for the first time in audio.

Worst book she has written

I have read every book and listen to most on audible.
This is the worst one she has written.
She has really stooped to the gutter for this material.
She should stay with British style and the Americans to theirs
This book is not what we expect from Lynda
It was bad I got as far as chapter 4 and that was enough
total rubbish John Thompson

Best read ever

Lynda La Plante has once again exceeded my expectations with a book which is so brilliant I couldn't stop listening to.
it was written a while ago, I honestly don't know how I missed reading it when it came out.
I thought The Widows was good but this is on par or better.
Lynda what a brilliant writer you are. thank you so much for writing this book, I look forward to hearing the next two in the trilogy.
audible please put all of Lynda's work on your site.
I recommend this book. The narrator is brilliant too.

Listener Beware

Despite the 2010 publication date provided by Audible, I believe 2010 is either a republication date or the date the book was recorded. I mention this because "Cold Shoulder" is not the same quality fiction as Lynda La Plante's Jane Tennison or Anna Travis series.

In addition to unsympathetic characters and unnecessary length, it is the narrator who earns my review of "Cold Shoulder" the title Listener Beware. The narrator has only one voice to differentiate characters and that voice is an unpleasant, whiney stereotype of working class New Jersey. This is also inappropriate given that the book's setting is California.
