Hidden Killers (Tennison 2) Paperback cover

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 . . .?

I was recently notified by email that there will not be a further ITV UK television series based on the young Jane Tennison. I was incredibly sad to have had to walk away from the series, Prime Suspect 1973, which was broadcast earlier this year…
