The fourth in Anabel Donald's witty and fast-paced series takes Alex Tanner, TV researcher and occasional PI, backwards and forwards across the Atlantic in search of a missing young man.

Alex Tanner jumps at the chance of a short assignment in Cicago. The only problem is that Barty, TV producer and occasional boyfriend, wants to come too.In the Windy City matters become even more complicated when a beautiful young model begs Alex to find her missing lover. Her boyfriend, she says, had been having a personal crisis and, by way of explanation, had kept saying over and over again that the answer lay `in the loop'...

The trail leads Alex from Chicago back to England, where the problems - both professional and romantic - really begin...

'A powerful sense of place ... in this fast absorbing read.' Val McDermid

'An intriguing mixture of wry humour, low-life sleaze and cult religion, interspersed with the saga of the heroine's hopeless love life. Perfect for the beach.' Cosmopolitan

About Anabel Donald

Anabel Donald has been writing fiction since 1982 when her first novel, Hannah at Thirty-five, was published to great critical acclaim. The Notting Hill series - her five crime novels about female sleuth Alex Tanner - met with equal success in the 1990s, and were followed by Be Nice - a female dystopian novel inspired both by William Golding's classic Lord of the Flies and thirty years of Donald's own experiences as a class teacher - in 2002.
