“…contains some nice twists, and the character of Travis continues to evolve and grow in complexity.” ~Booklist (Michele Leber)
“…With a delightful British accent, Kim Hicks leads the listener through the process of uncovering the truth of the bizarre series of events…Hicks communicates the frustration and determination of Detective Anna Travis as she tries to solve the case and prove herself a capable investigator in this perfectly performed novel.” EARPHONES AWARD WINNER ~AudioFile (M.S.)
DCI Anna Travis has fought hard to win the respect of her peers in the male dominated world of police detective work. Now she has to put her reputation and a whole lot more on the line as she heads up her first investigation.
The only problem is, she’s not sure whether it’s a missing person’s case or a murder investigation. The discovery of a pool of blood certainly seems to suggest the latter, but murder usually yields at least one body, and as yet none has been found. Anna faces a race against time to unpick the mystery, while her colleagues increasingly question her state of mind - not least among them, the ever-watchful figure of DCS James Langton.In this seventh story in la Plante’s highly popular Above Suspicion series, Anna is handed her most perplexing case yet. Solving the case could see her star continue to ascend, while failure could stop her burgeoning career dead in its tracks. Blood Line is read by Kim Hicks, who has given a voice and a sense of tension and atmosphere to many of the previous books in the series. All in all, it’s an exciting audio book that fans of crime thrillers with strong heroines are going to love.
