GOOD FRIDAY – the new TENNISON book available in August

Good Friday (Tennison 3) by Lynda La PLante book cover

I am delighted to announce that the next book in the TENNISON series will be called GOOD FRIDAY and will be published in August this year.

Set in April 1976, it covers a period when London was subjected to a terrifying bombing campaign carried out by the Irish Republican Army.

Jane Tennison is now a fully-fledged Detective Constable, and is eager to join the all-male renowned Metropolitan Police Flying Squad (the Sweeney). As a possible route into the Flying Squad – and hoping to prove her capabilities – she is attached to a sub unit known as the Dip Squad, plain clothes officers targeting crime on the seedy streets of Soho.

Hidden Killers by Lynda La Plante - paperback cover

HIDDEN KILLERS – now available in paperback

I’m very excited that HIDDEN KILLERS is now out in paperback and no.2 on the Sunday Times bestseller list. I love to receive your feedback, so please let me know what you think! 

A prostitute dressed in a blue rabbit fur coat walks through the darkness of Hackney Fields, seemingly alone. But someone is waiting for her . . .  A woman is found dead in her bath, a small child crying in the room next door . . . Is it accidental death or the perfect murder?

When WPC Jane Tennison is promoted to the role of Detective Constable in London’s Bow Street CID, she is immediately conflicted. While her far more experience colleagues move on swiftly from one criminal case to another, Jane is often left with doubts about their findings. Becoming inextricably embroiled in a multiple-rape case, Jane must put her life at risk in the search for answers. Will she toe the CID line, or endanger her position by seeking the truth . . .?
