Synopsis of Clean Cut
Dedicated, intuitive and utterly obsessive, DCI James Langton is ruthless in his pursuit of a gang of illegal immigrants, killers of a young prostitute.
When he is horrifically, almost fatally injured by one of them, it falls upon DI Anna Travis to put her own career on hold as she nurses him through his intense frustration and desperation to bring his would-be murderer to justice.
Then Anna is assigned to a different case, the brutal killing of a quiet, studious woman whose body was discovered by her daughter returning home from school.
A senseless attack with no obvious motive or immediate suspect.
Until, chillingly, this case becomes unexpectedly linked with Langton’s and Anna finds herself under similar threat from those who almost destroyed his career and his life.

Review of Clean Cut by Lynda La Plante
I liked it less than the previous two though it’s not at all bad. In this one, the police procedure, which is the main thing in all of this author’s novels, at least the ones in this series, is still very good.
The thing is that the main plot actually seems a little secondary as the personal relationships between the protagonist, Anna Travis, and her boss James Langton, take on more importance.
Otherwise, everything is fine: it’s entertaining, engaging, the plot is good…
