Lynda La Plante is hands down my favourite author, ever since I read the first novel in the Anna Travis series - 'Above Suspicion'. I am always sucked into the plot, often feeling like another character on the team, and 'Wrongful Death' is of no exception. Thank you, Ms. La Plante, for providing such thrilling stories to fuel my imagination and admirable, inspiring characters like Anna Travis.

Reignited my love for reading!

Im going to be truthful. I ‘borrowed’ this novel from a bnb I stayed at once and it reignited my love for reading after not reading for several years. Though being quite difficult to get into and finding myself unable to ‘vibe’ the protagonists, the storyline kept me intrigued. Halfway through, I was concerned I would never find out what happened to Joshua... but I did. The ending happened quite quickly, and I couldn’t put the book down. It was very unpredictable. However, I was unsatisfied with the ending and left quite angry.

So in summary: good storyline - not great. No super likeable characters. Unpredictable which is my preference, but underwhelming resolution.

Wrongful Death

Worst crime novel I have read in a long time!
The plot was convoluted and at times went from the improbable to the impossible! A visiting FBI profiler behaving in a manner that would have brought her a severe dressing-down had she been a British cop was so unbelievable. And Anna Travis nipping across to the FBI Academy, falling in love and having a sexual encounter, and then solving a young girl's murder all within a couple of days? Rubbish! So many crime novels seem to be written with silly, sensationalism these days and with a view to them being turned into TV shows, that the writers have to think up daft plots to satisfy people who watch such drivel.
No more Anna Travis for me! Wouldn't waste my money!
