DC Anna Travis joins a team on the hunt for a particularly gruesome serial killer. When the latest victim is found and doesn't fit the usual profile of the killer's victims, Travis sets out to prove herself.
A series of brutal sex murders disturbingly similar to the pattern of Superintendent Jane Tennison's first major case leads to the awful suggestion that she may have caught the wrong man the first time.
Detective Anna Travis is working on a murder case that has created a media frenzy. The victim, Louise Pennel, a 24-year-old girl, was last seen in a London night club. Her body later dumped, horrifically mutilated and drained of blood. Her death is an ominous mirror image of an unsolved 1940s case in Los Angeles known as "The Black Dahlia". Detective Sergeant Anna Travis must race against time to catch this copycat killer. Written by
A woman cut in half is found in a park. DC Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly) connects the case to the murder of Elizabeth Short in 1947 L.A. It was the infamous Black Dahlia case. The victim is Louise Pennel and her case is dubbed the Red Dahlia. Another victim is discovered. Anna sleeps with journalist Richard Reynolds who reports the details of the case. Her boss DCI James Langton (Ciarán Hinds) is angered by the leak.
It's the second series of the Lynda La Plante novels. Recycling the Black Dahlia case doesn't bode well for originality. There isn't anything new that countless TV police procedural haven't done. Anna is a sexual character and I have no problem with the show playing up that part. I still have problems with her flirting with Langton. However, the two leads are solid and makes this more than what it is.
