    1. This is the 6th book in the Anna Travis series by author Lynda La Plante.In this book Detective Anna Travis investigates a serial killer who is targeting prostitutes The latest victim is found naked by a truck stop and she is proving difficult to identify With the mounting pressure to make progress on the case, Anna is offered help from a surprising source An evil killer named Cameron Welsh, a lifer who Anna previously helped put behind bars is offering his help by identifying the serial killer, [...]

    2. I ve been happily reading the Anna Travis series by Lynda La Plante since the first book and enjoying them Despite a few odds and ends that can be mildly annoying Ongoing romantic angst, a tricky senior officer in this case the early on love interest as well , and some seriously big books without always having quite enough story to fill out all of the pages BLIND FURY, unfortunately, nearly defeated me before the end Which is a pity Because the investigative elements of this book are actually no [...]

    3. Oh dear Perhaps it is because I have just read two extremely well written books in this genre that this one seems so clunky and awkward I simply cannot force myself through it I am on page 54 and already I want to hurl it across the room in irritation.I have just finished reading The Distant Echo by Val McDermid and Knots Crosses by Ian Rankin This is no coincidence as I was shopping at the Range and they were selling crime novels at two for fiver and these are three of a set of four my mum and [...]

    4. I am a huge fan of Linda LaPlante, even though some of her work does not always reach the levels of her best work Who s among us does Once, after she d directed a successful TV series, I saw some interviews with the actor stars They said she did enormous amounts of research and followed real case developments closely in writing her own screenplays Frankly, it shows One of the best things about her dramas, whether for the reading, listening, or watching audience, is the authenticity of the voices [...]

    5. I must say that I don t take a lot of notice of the titles of Lynda La Plante s DI Anna Travis novels, as I don t think they usually relate to the actual novel I suppose this book the latest in the series does, but you wouldn t make the link until the end.This book is about another murder case that DI Travis is working on, the murder of three women whose bodies were all found just off a London motorway It s a dead case with very few leads Enter a murderer in gaol who specifically states he can a [...]

    6. This is the lowest rating I ve ever given a book on this site thus far The writing style felt detached Oft times the dialogue was stiff with no show of character.And the character themselves felt very bland and 2d I know this is in the middle of a series but a lot of the characters personalities was based on simple assumptions And one should never stop exploring characters, even in a series, as it allows the reader closer understanding of the character.The lead was supposed to be some strong wom [...]

    7. What an interesting story, I thoroughly enjoyed it Detective Inspector Anna Travis is leading the investigation of the gruesome murders of three women Their raped and brutalized bodies have been dumped close to a truck stop between London and Manchester The cases are similar enough that Anna demands investigation into the lives and possible connection between the 3 women Her former lover, Chief Inspector Langdon is the head of her department, therefore, she needs to tread carefully around him, [...]

    8. Detective Anna Travis has a serial killer on her hands Someone is targeting prostitutes and killing them The latest victim was found naked and by a truck stop Anna and the rest of her unit have tried everything to identify the woman but she is a Jane Doe With the trail growing cold, Anna s boss is feeling the pressure to crack the case and soon So when opportunity presents itself to Anna in the form of an offer from inmate, Cameron Welsh offering to help Anna track the killer, she can not pass u [...]

    9. Linda LaPlante writes excellent police procedurals in several series This one features DI Anna Travis whom we saw earlier involved in a ridiculous affair with her boss, Superintendent Langton who continues to have a presence and influence on the investigations He s also a very bright detective as we see in one scene.The scenes with Cameron Walsh were a bit too reminiscent of Silence of the Lambs Walsh is a killer Travis had jailed years earlier but he s obsessed with her and claims to be able to [...]

    10. Haven t read a police crime book in ages, and what a delight I m a big fan of police shows, especially British ones, so can imagine exactly what this story would look like on TV.There was a lot of detail, and the unfolding of the evidence was methodical and fascinating, even in the bits that were supposed to be tedious But sometimes there was too much detail in the end especially Hate it when some books don t tie up all the loose ends, but this book tied everything up and then some It all sort o [...]

    11. Blind Fury, by Lynda LaPlante, BNarrated by Kim Hicks, produced by Audiogo, audible inc downloaded from audible.Anna Travis is assigned to a case involving a body that turned up by a poorly supervised truck stop station Other girls turn up in the same vicinity Their bodies go unidentified because no one steps forward to even declare them missing Anna gets a letter from a stone cold killer that she put away for life This killer claims to have information about this series of crimes Anna s boss ma [...]

    12. I know, after having read The Talisman I said I wouldn t read another La Plante But my husband spotted it at a bookshop and bought it for me before I could stop him so I made my way through this slow mover A couple of cold cases which are recognized as the work of a serial killer La Plante has lost her touch and her editor has again left her in the lurch In one interview Mike Lewis is questioning Smiley, the next moment Langton pushes him relentlessly Another example is a photo Travis got from h [...]

    13. I can t remember when I last read a book that was such a page turner Being a fan of the Trial and Retribution and Prime Suspect television series, I was drawn to sample some of Lynda La Plante s writing, although a bit hesitant as I m not a fan of crime fiction, and I am a terriby scaredy cat, so this was our first meeting Blind Fury is a book which is not about the writing at all, just purely and simply a pacey read It s a murder mystery with no gruesome bits to make sleeping difficult, a cast [...]

    14. More of a three and a half than a four but definately not a threeI ve read a few of Lynda La Plantes other books and can confirm this wasn t up to her usual standard Still so readable and you certainly feel compelled to keep turning those pages but the plot was a little flat.This was a little predictable and felt a little farfetched SPOILERS.I didnt think it was right how it ended especially Annas new mind frame after the Ken thing not too big a spoiler Just felt flat in comparison to her other [...]

    15. I cannot understand how anyone could give this book than two stars It was very poorly written and edited But than that, it was slow moving and almost completely transparent The characters were not well developed There were many inconsistencies There are too many good books out there to waste your time on this one.

    16. Another gripping page turner in this series of police procedurals Le Plante certainly captures how detailed and at times tedious an investigation like this is.I really hope she continues to develop this series.

    17. The beginning of this book was very slow Actually it didn t exciting until page 200 or so which for a mystery is a very long time to wait for something exciting to happen The conclusion s were very obvious early on in the book I wouldn t waste my time reading this one Don t know why I did

    18. Not read a La Plante for some time I think the TV drama series has put me off But it was a good plot although a little slow in places a couple of good twists near the end A good read.

    19. The story is long and predictable and the characters are uninteresting It seemed like a chronicle of the main character s very average life than a novel that was meant to entertain anyone.

    20. I m afraid this book disappointed me was so incredibly drawn out, and repetitious I enjoyed the story line though, with Anna showing up the rest of the team, once again.

    21. spoilers Finally finished this book, thought i was never going to finish it Not La Plante s best work to the point where i was struggling to keep picking it back up.To begin with it didn t flow and often felt clunky in places, with details provided about characters and scenarios that didn t add anything extra but seemed pointless for example what Travis makes herself for dinner or does doesn t have in her fridge.The whole premise of the book is trusting one killer to catch another and it felt ra [...]

    22. Blind Fury has Anna Travis getting on with her life sans DCS Langton A young girl s body found in a ditch turns out to be one of a serial killers victims Polish descent and hard to identify end up being clues to the killer Anna finds love again when she travels up to visit a sociopathic prisoner, who is obsessed with her but claims to know how to solve her serial murder mystery, where she meets a prison guard who seems perfect All is not as it seems though and tragedy strikes leaving Anna being [...]

    23. 4 1 2 5 stars Another strong thriller from LaPLante, the 6th book in her Anna Travis series was a real pager turner When a woman s body is found close to a highway, Travis becomes enmeshed in a case that will take her in directions she s never been before Ordered to consult with a serial killer who claims to have insight into the murder, Anna meets a man who will become of prime importance to her The case and her relationship will take her to unexpected places A gripping read.

    24. Have not read any of her works before but have seen some of the TV adaptations.Started well but about a quarter of the way through I began to find it turgid,lacking any sense of tension and urgency A little further on I began skipping pages,then large chunks I found the characters rather stock in personality generally and the plot regarding the imprisoned serial killer unbelievable and it seemed very like The Silence of the Lambs not sure who plagiorised who Very disappointing.

    25. Quite a good crime novel but unrealistic rushed in places the books I read in this series, the I dislike Travis Seeing as she s the main character it then holds you back from caring what happens to her She s a controlling, arrogant cold fish Wouldn t want to be stuck in a lift with her.

    26. In this book, we get to see some of Anna Travis s personal life that gave you some ideas that she could have deep emotions.She falls for a man that gives her love that she had never felt before But as she continues to dig into several murders, things get really complicated and creepy.It went on for a LONG time and I was loosing interest when they finally got the bad guy.

    27. This is the first book by this author that I have read, and overall I enjoyed the her style and the story I thought there was early telegraphing of the downfall of a certain character, which encouraged me to keep going to find out if I was correct.

    28. Easy read, straight forward crime novel with a few twists and turns Enjoy the London setting, and the social norms of England being referenced throughout the novel Will definitely be reading the rest of the books in this series.

    29. This is the first Lynda La Plante book I ve read and I was not impressed I found the story to be very predictable and the characters to be very underdeveloped.

    30. Always a good read from Lynda La Plante This story has you guessing right to the last few chapters until it came together Her books are real turn pagers and you won t be disappointed with this one.
