Publisher Description

A motorway service station on the M1: dimly lit, run down, poorly supervised, flickering lights, dark corners; a favourite stopover for long-distance lorry drivers on their way up north from London. Behind it, a body is found in a ditch, that of a girl barely out of her teens. She appears to have no family, no friends, no connections anywhere. Other girls have gone missing in the vicinity and no one has stepped forward to claim them.

Anna Travis is assigned to the case. Her blood runs cold when she receives a letter from a lifer -- someone she was responsible for arresting in the past -- who writes to her from prison, asking her to visit him urgently. For he claims he knows who the killer is…

Interesting but not a page-turner

The story started out quite slow and I was considering giving up on it. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and kept going. I found it quite interesting up until the very end which disappointed me a fair bit. The ending was somewhat unexpected and I'm left feeling no sense of closure. Not badly written and a good read nonetheless. Would I recommend it? If the last chapter or so was taken out, yes. Unless you're the type who likes to walk away from stories feeling empty and questioning what's next, then go right ahead! This is probably the book for you :)

Blind fury

The writing was sparse and the characters were not well developed. The plot was predictable from the beginning. The prison scenarios were unlikely and a fairly obscure adjunct to the plot.
