Backlash is the first book that I have read by La Plante, and I found it to be an engrossing read. Despite not having read this series before, I found that I was able to catch on to these main characters very easily and the history that they share. The chance arrest of an erratic driver leads to the discovery of a body as well as a potential lead to a cold case that has haunted Langton for five years. Anna Travis is pulled into the case by Langton, and it becomes a race against time to prove that these murders are connected. La Plante delivers a compelling read full of many twists and turns that keeps the reader guessing until the end. I also loved the author's character development because the reader gets pulled into the chase as each of these detectives tries to solve this horrific case. Overall Backlash proved to be a read that was very hard to put down, and I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
Received a copy of Backlash through Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.
