GOOD FRIDAY – the new TENNISON book available in September
I am delighted to announce that the next book in the TENNISON series will be called GOOD FRIDAY.
Set in April 1976, it covers a period when London was subjected to a terrifying bombing campaign carried out by the Irish Republican Army. In one day alone seven bombs were planted across central London. Some of these bombs were defused, but those that were not resulted in death, serious injury and a carnage that spread fear and trepidation amongst Londoners and the wider public.
Jane Tennison is now a fully-fledged Detective Constable, and is eager to join the all-male renowned Metropolitan Police Flying Squad (the Sweeny). 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.
Everything changes when Jane narrowly escapes death in an explosion at a central London tube station. Caught up in its terrible aftermath, she realises she is a key witness in the identification of the bomber. She is forced to work with DCI Crowley of Scotland Yard’s Bomb Squad, who will use any means necessary to hunt down those responsible.
Jane’s inquisitive nature unwittingly draws her into unforeseen dangers. She soon discovers she is in a world of deceit and dishonesty and wonders who amongst her friends and colleagues she can trust.
I’m so very grateful for all the encouragement and feedback you give me through this website, Facebook and twitter, also for all the amazing reviews online. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed TENNISON and HIDDEN KILLERS and I hope you take the next journey through GOOD FRIDAY.
GOOD FRIDAY will be published by Bonnier Zaffre on the 7th September 2017 – click below to pre-order your copy now.

Praise for Tennison
TENNISON – now available in paperback
I am thrilled to tell you that TENNISON is now published as a paperback.
I’m making the first chapter available free for you to download here, please see link below. There are also links to me talking about the book and characters.
I do hope you enjoy reading TENNISON, as much as I enjoyed writing it.
‘Prime Suspect 1973‘ is the TV tie-in edition of my book, ‘Tennison‘. The network chose to rename the TV series (loosely adapted from my original book), but just to clarify that the book version of ‘Prime Suspect 1973‘ is identical to the book version of ‘Tennison‘ – so if you have already read ‘Tennison‘ you don’t need to read ‘Prime Suspect 1973‘ as it is the same book, with a different cover! The second book in the ‘Tennison‘ series, ‘Hidden Killers‘, is also available on Amazon, and the third book is currently being edited! I am so sorry for any confusion.
