Description

The investigation will place Jane between developers keen to restart work and get the money rolling and a secretive Catholic diocese, desperate to sweep any evidence under the carpet. This is another quite long book, but the tension builds well throughout as Jane tries to stay one step ahead of the IRA. Set around the time of the IRA bombing campain in London Good Friday puts Jane in the middle of possibly her most dangerous investigations albeit from the sidelines. She was constantly apologising for not working regular hours, for not being available for family events and not being the little woman at home. I have lived in China for the past 2O years,so getting English novels is not easy,although found odd ones on the internet here.

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. Today Mandie is sharing her thoughts on book two in Lynda La Plante’s Tennison series, Hidden Killers.an eccentric widow claims she is being stalked by her former lodger, Detective Jack Warr is the only person who believes her wild claims. If Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison hadn't been a woman, she might not have noticed the victim's shoes . Does Jack lock horns with the inept Drug Squad boss Lewis or perhaps cash in a favour from Lyle at Hammersmith? She then turned to writing - and made her breakthrough with the phenomenally successful TV series Widows . The fast-paced follow up to Lynda La Plante’s first Prime Suspect thriller, Prime Suspect 2: A Face in the Crowd, reunites readers with Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison as she hunts down a mysterious killer hidden amidst London’s.

A second series of Widows followed in 1985, while a sequel She's Out took up the story ten years later. She’s desperate to dig into the rape charge and find out more, but has very little power – she’s becoming aware of how much of an underdog she is, despite having made it into the CID. On 3rd October 2009, Lynda was honoured at the Cologne Conference International Film and Television Festival with the prestigious TV Spielfilm Award for her television adaptation of her novel, Above Suspicion. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. In the same year she received the TV Spielfilm Award at the International Film and Television Festival Conference in Cologne, Germany, for her television adaptation of her novel Above Suspicion.Her breakthrough came in 1983 when she created and wrote the six-part robbery series Widows for Thames Television.

I’ll say no more, other than that Jane acquits herself admirably – it’s pretty exciting stuff, and undoubtedly will be good for her career. She trained for the stage at RADA and worked with the National Theatre and RSC before becoming a television actress. Lynda La Plante was made an honorary fellow of the British Film Institute and was given the BAFTA Dennis Potter Award in 2000. Not that I’m finding it easy, especially when the siren song of blog tour organisers drifts into my inbox almost daily. The heiress of an immense family fortune, she keeps the secret to the horror which once occurred within the Lanark family house.I was interested in the gender politics of the series, the way male officers would deride and try to undermine Tennison was shocking. If you haven’t started with ‘Tennison’, I’d really suggest you start there so you can enjoy Jane Tennison’s development as a character – it’s a journey you won’t want to miss. When an eccentric widow claims she is being stalked by her former lodger, Detective Jack Warr is the only person who believes her wild claims. Helena Lanark is the only one who knows about the horrors which once occurred in her family's house.

Jane Tennison has been been promoted to the role of Detective Constable in London's Bow Street CID but she is struggling with some of the decisions her colleagues are making. As prolific as ever, Lynda La Plante is delivering one of these novels per year and I’ve found it fascinating to watch the character we’re used to watching as a Detective Inspector, starting out in uniform and learning the ropes. Can she convince her senior officers in time, or will another bomb destroy London’s entire detective force? 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.This is by no means a short book at over 400 pages but trust me you will have no problem turning each and every one of them and I for one am looking forward to see what Tennison faces next.
