Editors Note Cited as one of the top ten crime novels of 2006 (Kirkus Reviews), No Trace is the finest novel yet by one of best crime novelists of our time. In a London neighborhood known for its artists and bohemian style, six year old Tracey Rudd is abducted from her home without any warning, or sign of violence. She is the third child abucted under similar circumstances in recent weeks. But this case is different. She is the daughter of notorious contemporary artist Gabriel Rudd, best known for the grotesque "Dead Puppies," a work centered around his wife's suicide five years earlier. While Rudd exploits Tracey's abduction as an inspiration for a major new work in his upcoming exhibit, D.C.I. David Brock and Detective Sergeant Kathy Kolla hunt for the missing girls' kidnapper, who is suspiciously connected to the eccentric community of artists, dealers, and collectors in the neighborhood.
Annotation In NO TRACE:A BROCK AND KALLA MYSTERY, Scotland Yarders DCI David Brock and Detective Sergeant. Kathy Kolla investigating the strange abduction of a six-year-old girl. The missing child happens to be the daughter of the controversial and cantankerous artist Gabe Rudd, who lives in an eccentric and tight-knit artist's community. Further muddling matters is the fact that Rudd famously used his wife's suicide as inspiration for an art piece, and now, with his daughter missing, he is brainstorming ideas for a work based on her abduction. Maitland makes good use of the artist's community setting, quickly turning it into a gruesome affair by murdering the residents off in grisly ways that mimic their own artwork. While readers might have to work to follow the story's many labyrinthine details, Maitland's vivid prose creates a captivating and original tale of suspense.
