Summary

Hot young British film star Amanda Delany had the world at her feet. She'd had a string of affairs with famous actors, making perfect fodder for the tabloids. Then came a commission to write a tell-all memoir.

When Amanda is found brutally murdered, DCI James Langton's enquiry discovers the sad truth behind her successful façade. Addicted to drugs and starvation diets, she'd almost died from a botched abortion.

Meanwhile, DI Anna Travis is up for promotion, but Langton is blocking her, accusing her of professional misconduct. This latest case could make or break Anna's career.

Silent scream

Absolutely brilliant enjoying it very much could guess who don't till the end good read

Was okay

This was an enjoyable listen but not, in my opinion, one of her best. It is only 5 hours so doesn't take long to get through. It was easy to follow the story and it does flow well. Good to listen to on a trip or holiday.

Absorbing

I have all the Anna Travis books and have listened to four thus far. I have found each storyline has a similar climatic piece followed by a challenging ending and some lecturing.
The first three books were narrated by the same person, but this book was read by a different narrator and took a littlle time for me to accept the new voices of the old carracters.

Overall, a great storyline, capturing you, yet again with the entwined plots and confusion. James continue his endless infactuation and hold on Anna. The entwined relationships between the staff and their lives in the back ground is maintained, but the focus is always on the main characters and the perpetrators.

The ending is always the same, well in the first four books..... a little frustrating but a good read (sorry listen), none the less.

Hope you enjoy the Anna Travis series as much as I am.
