This book highlights for American readers the dramatic difference in crime violence when guns are strictly regulated.
Second book in the series. As in the first book, ground work for the growing relationship between Willows and Lane is shown, not told. Thanks to the author for respecting the intelligence of the readers. I am concerned that clues connecting Lane and others were left at the scene of a serious incident.
I'm trusting that the author will address this in book 3. Don't peek at this sp This book highlights for American readers the dramatic difference in crime violence when guns are strictly regulated. Don't peek at this spoiler if you want to enjoy the resolution of the major conflict. Considering that an arson ticket is a one way ticket to prison the antagonist is bound to tell who set the fire.

Another winner Lane is a tough ex-cop, and I like to read about strong women. Growing up in the 50's we didn't even dream of a woman being a cop. Willows, the older widow drops out of the story when the action moves to London. I am not that fond of stories about urban gangs, but I liked the characters. The heart of the story is losing the career that defined you and gave your life vitality. The male characters, however, are somewhat stetrotypical. Another great story based on the Lane and Emily characters.
This time Lane went back to London where she used to work in search of a missing son of a friend of Emily's. Against the odds, she helps an immigrant family get out from under the thumb of an urban gang. Not quite as nail-biting as the previous Lane book, it has plenty of action, nevertheless. I'm looking forward to the next Lane One Way Ticket - The Acres - Plow This Land (CD by Peter Grainger.
Apr 21, Rhonda rated it really liked it. I tend to like most Brit lit, but thrillers or police procedurals are not my usual genre. With the beautifully developing characters, this series transcends genre. The only problem now is waiting for the next I he series to be written! I will have to look toothed Grainger series in the meantime! Apr 26, One Way Ticket - The Acres - Plow This Land (CD, Melanie Kircher rated it it was amazing.
A powerful, compelling read filled w compassion Mr. Grainger can write. This book is written w power and grace. Two damaged characters gave even more damaged villains. However, it is the courage of the two protagonists which captured me. I am buying as many of Mr. Grainger's books as my budget will allow. Feb 12, Jill Stirling rated it really liked it. Enjoyable read.
Bit disappointed that Willow was not really in the story. I liked her perspective. Lane is bit colourless with out her. Found it hard to relate. It was a great plot and showed how far from justice the police force in Britain has strayed. Although some of their actions were a bit mystifying. Feb 25, Pauline Strevens rated it it was amazing. One way tickets. Peter Grainger is brilliant at creating characters that draw you in, developing clever situations that are not impossible to imagine, making the whole book very readable.
Feb 25, lindalathrop rated it it was amazing. Excellent read Couldn't put this book down! The storyline never gets boring and I like how I'm learning more and more about Lane. Fast-paced and intriguing. Apr 03, Bonnie J Steele rated it it was amazing. Well done. Peter Grainger In all of Grainger's books that I've read, I'm impressed by his insight in describing some of our times most difficult issues, such as aging and the lives of returning veterans.

Jul 27, Vanessa rated it it was amazing. Nick Pascoe is a great addition to Willows and Lane and I hope he sticks around. Some really powerful observations about PTSD in this book.
Aug 06, Penny rated it it was amazing. Superb Touching, exciting, insightful, haunting. Great writing and a multi-tiered story from which we can all learn about how life is for those who have experienced fighting in a war — be it on a battlefield in another country or on the streets of the city we live in.
Sep 09, Bernard D. Cole rated it it was amazing. Grainger has written another winner. Kind of a slow start--he doesn't really lay out a realistic or significant role for Willows, but Lane is terrific.
The last part of this book is what makes it so good. As a two-tour veteran of Vietnam, I was really hit by the windup between Lane and Nick. Feb 03, Rema rated it it was amazing. Absolutely great story for Lane Well done!!! Loved this. I hope you continue this line of Lane and Willows. Feb 05, Laurel rated it really liked it.
Great story! In fact, the author should consider jettisoning Willows altogether. In my opinion. Mar 25, Jeannine Hardiman rated it it was amazing. Definite read Such a great story. I loved the characters and the way they were developed throughout the story. Short but, man, do I want more! After only two little books I have come to care for Willows and Lane. And now Nick. Please let there be more!
Dec 31, Lori rated it it was amazing. Hope he writes more in this series. Feb 14, Jill Bristow rated it it was amazing. Two very enjoyable books Read both of the Lane books back to back.
