The latest Anna Travis book from Lynda La Plante, BLIND FURY, has a the bodies of two young unknown girls found near a major motorway service centre, eventually connected to the death of a well-known older prostitute.

From the Blurb:

Close to a motorway service station, the body of a young woman is discovered.  She appears to have no family, no friends, no one to identify her.  Detective Inspector Anna Travis is brought onto the team of investigators by Detective Chief Superintendent James Langton, who already suspects that this recent case could be linked to two unsolved murders.  As more evidence is uncovered the team realises that they are contending with a triple murder investigation - and no suspect.

Opening Lines:

Eva walked between the few parked cars at the London Gateway service station off the M1 motorway.

A motorway service station on the M1: dimly lit, run down, poorly supervised, flickering lights, dark corners; a favourite stopover for long-distance lorry drivers on their way up north from London. Behind it, a body is found in a ditch, that of a girl barely out of her teens. She appears to have no family, no friends, no connections anywhere. Other girls have gone missing in the vicinity and no one has stepped forward to claim them.
