'Another classy writer, Lynda La Plante introduces a beguiling young detective, Anna Travis, in her first crime novel for three years' DAILY MAIL
'Lynda La Plane is building up an interesting body of fictional work on the page whcih is vastly underated [. . . ] balancing the minutiae of police work and the dreadful politics of the job, Anna proves to be a resourceful and believable heroine in an all-too-recognisable contemporary Britain and heralds the launch of a major new character' CRIME TIME Issue 43 --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

Présentation de l'éditeur

Young detective Anna Travis has been assigned to her first murder case - and it couldn't be a more shocking, more horrific set of killings. They began eight years before; now the body count is up to six. The method of killing is identical, the backgrounds of the girls very similar - all of them were drug-ridden prostitutes. Then a seventh body is found, same modus operandi but this time the victim is a young student, sweet and innocent, with the 'face of an angel'. The profile of the murderer has changed dramatically.
Anna stumbles on a vital piece of information which links one man to the killings. A household name, a much-loved actor who is about to become an international movie star. He has charm, good looks and the gift of the gab. Denial and protestations of innocence spring easily and confidently to his lips. An arrest, in the face of intense publicity, would create a media frenzy. And if he was found beyond doubt to be the wrong man, his career would be finished and Anna's hard fought-for reputation in the police force destroyed once and for all …
With absolute authenticity and extraordinary power, Lynda La Plante takes us deep into the criminal mind and the criminal world. And, in heroine Anna Travis, she has created another memorable and utterly engaging new female detective. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Rookie Detective and the Serial Killer 19 avril 2006
Par George Webster, Ph.D., - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
For the reader that is tired of the same old stories of tough, hard-drinking detectives in Los Angeles or New York, Lynda La Plante offers a refreshing detective in a tale from London that has a gratifyingly authentic flavor. There is a hint of La Plante's excellent Prime Suspect television series, and a hint of Jack the Ripper in this story of bright, young Detective Sergeant Anna Travis, daughter of the late Detective Chief Superintendent Jack Travis. Anna is chosen by Detective Chief Inspector Langton to join his team investigating a series of murders of prostitutes. There is almost no evidence identifying anyone as the killer, but the team continues to dig until they uncover puzzling clues pointing to a handsome, famous movie star. It seems unlikely that this wealthy man is the murderer, but as the investigation continues, he turns his charm toward Anna. Or is he stalking her? Suspense builds until we reach a gripping climax to a most enjoyable story.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Where's Helen Mirren when you need her? 13 août 2008
Par Carol S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I enjoyed "Prime Suspect" and when I learned that the creator of the show had written some mysteries, I figured I'd give one a go. Having just finished "Above Suspicion," it is easy to see why LaPlante is so successful writing TV drama: she's good at plot. The novel moves at a brisk pace (at least for the first 3/4 of the way; the ending sags miserably) and the story is fairly entertaining, if not terribly original (sociopath killing prostitutes in London).

Unfortunately, a mostly-fast-paced plot does not an excellent mystery make without original, convincing characters; high quality writing; and nuanced dialogue. And "Above Suspicion" lacks all three. The characters are cardboard cutouts: the child of a detective who wants to make her father proud, the terse, but oh-so-manly chief inspector whose wife has conveniently died, the charming and handsome suspect with the prostitute mother. The dialogue is basic and formulaic. The scenes shift abruptly, without any background development. The writing is ho-hum, flat and basic to the point of simplistic. The worst sin of all: clunkers that make the reader stop and groan with exasperation. The police allow a novice detective to go out on a date with the suspected sociopath/serial killer? The detective whose primary qualities are eating fast and being rude asserts some kind of romantic pull on his subordinate (notwithstanding all concerns about sexual relationships on the job)? Adjoining hotel rooms where the female detective conveniently sleeps in the nude? Yeah, right.

If you like British police procedurals, there are many many better choices: Ruth Rendell's Wexford series, Deborah Crombie's Duncan/Gemma mysteries, Elizabeth George, P.D. James, to name a few. Or maybe you're better off renting "Prime Suspect" on video and watching master Helen Mirren inject some depth and character into your crime drama -- because "Above Suspicion" lacks either.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "Watch the eyes. Wait for the fear." 8 mars 2006
Par Luan Gaines - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Being the new kid on the block is disconcerting to say the least, as Anna Travis joins a bustling murder squad in search of a serial killer who has just claimed his seventh victim. Getting up to speed by taking home victim files, Travis is sorely tested by her first corpse and coroner's exam, but in the spirit of her father, a revered cop known as "Jack the Knife", the fledging murder detective throws herself into the case. The last victim brings a much-needed break in the case, the squad subject to constant budget constraints and the good will of their superiors, who in turn must answer to the people. Far from glamorous, this is tedious labor, checking and rechecking facts, witnesses, necessary minutiae by which a strong case is built. Travis finds her presence increasingly requested by DCI Langton, perhaps because she puts a female face on a primarily male venue, but also for her tenacity and willingness to get the job done.

From one lead to another, Travis takes her cues from an unpredictable Langton, who is by turns elated by new information and depressed by a lack of progress. Finally, the meager leads bear fruit, all leading to the son of a prostitute, one of the serial killer's victims; the son's name is Anthony Duffy, now a well-known actor, Alan Daniels. Everything points to this man, but the evidence is circumstantial at best. If Daniels is the killer, he is brilliantly circumspect, going out of his way to be cooperative and charming, even paying special attention to Anna. Unnerved by his interest, Anna is confused and begins to doubt her cop instincts. Is Alan genuinely attracted to her or is he a practiced sociopath? In either case, Langton suggests Travis take advantage of Daniel's interest to ingratiate herself, in hopes of finding the critical piece of evidence that will put him away. In spite of being her father's daughter, Anna is hampered by a lack of self-confidence in her relationships with men, a tempting target for the inscrutable actor, Daniels.

LaPlante is a gifted writer of this genre, shuffling characters, clues and plot elements for maximum suspense. While the sardonic Langton is a perfect boss, waxing hot and cold in equal measure, Travis, the new female detective, is both sympathetic and likeable, a compelling combination. Smart and increasingly savvy in this new job, Travis takes to murder, although she first suffers the usual pangs of initiation, foolish mistakes and dangerous situations born of her naiveté. This police procedural combines the inner workings of a tough occupation, with the loyal, determined personalities that dedicate their lives to making the world a safer place. Anna Travis is at home on her new turf, ready for her next assignment. Luan Gaines/ 2006.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 English author should not use US settings 11 juillet 2010
Par Shaz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Way too much use of the F word. Practically on every page and several times. The author lives in London so her English settings are probably OK. However, you simply cannot drive from San Francisco to LA and be there for a 2:30 p.m. meeting with time for lunch and a swim, too. Also I cannot fathom a Super 8 Motel in San Francisco having a concierge!

I'll not be looking for her other books.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Predictable, with uninventive dialogue 6 janvier 2006
Par dcmb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book seemed more like a boring and drawn out made for TV movie than a suspenseful mystery novel.

The characters are stereotypical, lack depth and use recycled dialogue. The plot was unneccessarily drawn out and extremely predictable.

I couldn't put the book down because I kept hoping that it would get better...it didn't.
