"Still reeling from the death of her fiance, Detective Anna Travis has thrown herself into her new role as the chief inspector for London's murder squad. When Scotland Yard's missing persons bureau is unable to locate the son of a court employee, the superintendent--James Langton, Anna's former lover turned sometimes friend--urges her to take on the suspicious assignment. But is this new investigation purely a missing persons case--or a full-blown murder inquiry? An ominous pool of blood with no locatable victim leads Anna on a desperate hunt for a man who has disappeared without a trace. With no body, and increasing pressure to make an arrest, Anna becomes obsessed with the smallest details of the case. Now, one man has vanished, a killer may be loose on the streets, and, as Langton looks on, Anna Travis may be losing control of the investigation--and of herself."--P. [4] of cover.

This book has a complex plot, and it's hard to guess what will happen from the clues. The first half of the book has numerous anti-gay epithets and jokes; they are presented as tasteless but some might be offended at reading them. I found it disturbing how poorly Langton treats Anna Travis, his former lover, at times, though he claims to have a lot of respect and care for her. Of course, this being a novel, Anna has so much grit and perseverance that she figures out the crime in the end. A sordid situation, with all the criminals greedy and cruel. And here Alan was thought to be a really honest and honorable fellow. I would say this book was somewhat uneven, and the 3rd person invisible narrator sometimes slips into 3rd person omnicient, which is jarring. There are no truly noble characters in this novel. But there is suspense, and it is especially interesting to read about how formal police interviews are done.

I enjoyed reading this book, and as it was getting on, found it difficult to put down. Not usually what I read, but now like reading what she writes, and am reading more from this author.
I thought it was really good, and would recommend to others.

Her books dramatize better than they read. Story could have been condensed and plot wanders.
