Good story

DEADLY INTENT by Lynda La Plante is Book 4 of her Anna Travis Mysteries series. The book is fast-paced, very detailed, suspenseful and exhausting to read. (a good exhaustion!) There are numerous characters, dead bodies, interconnecting relationships and events. A well-written ‘police procedural’, I couldn’t put it down and have just ordered Book 5 of the series. Of course, the main characters are flawed - Anna Travis and James Langton. Anna has matured and is a top-notch, brilliant detective. Langton is a ticking time bomb - full of regrets, paralyzing pain from previous horrific injuries and a love-hate relationship with the human race. (Anna especially) I was a bit frustrated at the ‘loose ends’ at the end. I was also frustrated by Anna’s interest in Damien. (very self-destructive) DEADLY INTENT is highly recommended. An excellent choice if you’re looking for a suspenseful crime drama, police procedural and an up and coming detective series.

Frank Brandon left the murder squad unit to become a chauffeur for a minor drug dealer before marrying wealthy Julia Kendal. He was allegedly happy and had money to waste; so had no reason to be found murdered in a fetid dumpy flat in slummy Warren Estate. Murder Squad Detective Inspector Anna Travis fears Brandon's homicide means the return from the dead of her former partner Anthony Collingwood, who left her without warning with two kids and a lot of money almost a decade ago. Anthony is better known as Alexander Fitzpatrick, once the nation's leading drug kingpin, but out of sight for years. In spite of other associates of Fitzpatrick being assassinated, Anna's superior DCI Carol Cunningham disagrees as no proof has surfaced that the former criminal mastermind is alive. Unbeknownst to the cops including Anna's worried about her former lover DCS James Langton, Fitzpatrick had major facial surgery in Mexico and has come home to flood the country with the deadly painkiller Fentanyl. The latest Travis British police procedural (see ABOVE SUSPICION, CLEAN CUT and THE RED DAHLIA) is an excellent investigative tale that hooks the audience with the inquiry as much as the intriguing look back at the heroine's past. The story line is fast-paced even with a vividly detailed investigation as the prime cast makes this a top rate thriller. In a way the relationships between Anna and the two main men in her past, Anthony and James, make for a super triangle that enhances a strong mystery. Harriet Klausner
