Abstract:

Detective Anna Travis is working on a horrific, brutal murder case that has created a media frenzy. The victim, Louise Pennel, a 24-year-old, single, 'fun-loving' girl, was last seen in a London night club wearing a sequinned mini-dress and a red rose in her hair. In an eerie mirror image of the infamous LA murder case of Elizabeth Short in the l940s, known as the Black Dahlia, her body was found dumped by the River Thames...severed in half and brutalised beyond recognition. Anna Travis must summon all the strength and guile she became so well known for to hunt down this sadistic killer.
