The Wee Hen's mother was a devoted and loyal mystery reader for as long as one can remember. And I do remember well her love for the Prime Suspect series both in books and the british tv productions. So I decided to dive right in and what a delight I found. Anna Travis is wonderful- young, green, super keen, vulnerable but smart and with brilliant instincts, La Plante gives you everything you want in a good, solid police procedural and her heroine is a revelation. Travis finds herself on her first murder case and you get to see all the horror, thrills, revulsion of dead bodies and menacing sociopaths in the immediacy and with the sensitivity unique to a brand new copper. The baddie is a nasty, arrogant, vicious rapist/murderer of women and Travis gets drawn deep into the case and danger ensues. I can't wait to read more of this series and all of La Plante's books.
