The horror of the Covent Garden scenes are beautifully balanced with the humour of Jane’s issues with her flatmate’s inconsiderate TV and cooking habits! The story charts Jane Tennison's entry into the police force as a 22 year old Probationary Officer at Hackney Police Station in 1973.

The man ends up being charged with not only the indecent assaults but a rape too – and this is one occasion where Jane is suspicious of Moran’s way of working (he tells her a few blatant lies, but due to his position she’s unable to question them. Seconded to the bomb squad her temporary boss puts her in a situation that may literally see her in the line of fire. The great thing about these prequel novels is that we go back even further, to when a policewoman’s uniform included a matching handbag – useful for filling with stones and hitting criminals I guess. Lynda has a strong focus on crime and thriller, as she discovered when she wrote her first series for Thames Television, Widows, in 1983. Lynda La Plante is the first layperson to be awarded an honorary fellowship to the Forensic Science Society.She was the one who put in a transfer to the quiet, local police station in Bromley, keen to escape the relentless pressure of her former West End department.

When the body of a young woman is discovered close to a highway service station, Detective Inspector Anna Travis is brought on to the team of investigators by her former lover and boss, Detective Chief Superintendent Langton. Lynda's latest book, Tennison, was published on 24th September 2015 and is the prequel the highly acclaimed Prime Suspect.

I have finally stopped kicking myself for taking so long to read this series as it is completely addictive. Age doesn’t mean anything when faced with a women this driven in her career, and this dedicated to the heart of her craft.

Initially the focus is on identifying the victim, until another body is found hidden in the walls of the shelter. After a high-octane and lively Book 1 (‘Tennison’) and a quieter, more typical police procedural Book 2 (‘Hidden Killers’), I wasn’t sure where we’d be headed next with Jane Tennison’s police career!

When an eccentric elderly widow claims she is being stalked, Detective Jack Warr is the only person willing to dig into the truth, but he soon finds himself embroiled in an international drugs operation, art theft – and a murder investigation. On the way to court one morning, Jane passes through Covent Garden Underground station and is caught up in a bomb blast that leaves several people dead, and many horribly injured. As with the previous books in the series, the 1970s setting is convincingly portrayed; as part of this, the reader is given an insight into some very dodgy 70s policing. Jane Tennison must navigate the salacious world of theatre to solve a brutal murder in the heart of London's West End, in the brilliant new thriller from the Queen of Crime Drama, Lynda La Plante.

The unmissable brand new thriller from the Queen of Crime Drama, Lynda La Plante - now available in hardback, eBook and audiobook. In 2008, she was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for services to Literature, Drama and Charity.As the multi-faceted case unfolds, Jack is convinced the one person who lies at the heart of it all – the widow’s elusive stalker – is key to solving the case.
