Kind of disappointed with this one, considering it's coming from the creator of the fantastic "Prime Suspect" series. It's supposed to be a young woman's experience on the force, which could make for a compelling read. But honestly, it's just kind of boring and cliched. Anna Travis is the daughter of "everyone's favorite cop" and so she has a lot to live up to. Again, that could be interesting. But instead, Anna just gets wrapped up in an obsession with who she is more attracted to--her boss or the killer. I spent more time rolling my eyes than I did trying to figure out whodunit. I don't know that I'll look into any more books in this series.

The first book in the Anna Travis series)

This book was overall really good, especially because you got to understand what was going on in the killer's mind. The interactions between Anna and Langton, her boss, were a little bit awkward and annoying at points, but ended up working out well in the end. The suspense in this book comes not from trying to figure out who the killer is, as most people could probably figure that out from reading the back cover. Even though the answer to the mystery is more than a bit predictable, La Plante keeps readers interested while Anna and the rest of the team have to catch this killer. It was a really good police-detective book, and it was also pretty well-written, despite the fact that most of the characters didn't seem to use contractions enough, which made the dialogue sometimes seem awkward. Overall, a really good book!
