A beloved actor may also be a serial killer in a “gripping” British police procedural by the Edgar-winning author of Prime Suspect: “[A] spellbinder.” —Publishers WeeklyFrom the creator of Jane Tennison, immortalized by Helen Mirren in Prime Suspect, comes DS Anna Travis, a rookie detective embarking on her first murder case—one that couldn’t be more gruesome. The method of killing is identical, the backgrounds of the dead women very similar. All are prostitutes. But now a seventh body has been found. The M.O. is the same, but the victim this time is a sweet young student. Anna stumbles on information that links one man to the killings, a well-known, much-loved actor. His claim of innocence is convincing, and Anna might be succumbing to his flattering attention. What if he’s arrested, the media erupts—and he’s the wrong man?“Without a doubt one of the best writers working today. Above Suspicion blew me away.” —Karin Slaughter, New York Times–bestselling author of This is Why We Lied“There is no sugar coating on this 100-proof police procedural.” —USA Today“A smart, plucky series protagonist who’s enormously likable despite, or because of, her frailties. Think Jane Tennison in her salad days.” —Kirkus Reviews“Anna’s complex and heated relationship with her boss is almost as compelling as the chase for the serial killer.” —Booklist“Keeps readers devouring pages at a murderous rate.” —People
