Murder Mile by Lynda La Plante

Hi, Everyone,

I am very pleased that it is now less than a week until my newest Tennison novel, Murder Mile, is available in bookshops around the world.

The story is set in February, 1979, ‘The Winter of Discontent’. As the rubbish on the streets begins to pile up, so does the murder count: two bodies in as many days.

You can read more about the book, pre-order a copy and also download a free extended sample here.

I love Jane Tennison and hope you enjoy reading about the next phase in her career as much as I did writing it.

The response to the new edition of Widows has been overwhelming, and I can’t thank you enough. I’m so pleased the novel is available for people to read again. Dolly, Shirley, Linda and Bella are very dear to my heart and I do love the new cover!

As you may know there is also a film from Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen coming out in autumn based on my characters. You can see the brand-new trailer on the right.

If you’ve not had a chance to read the new edition of Widows yet you can download a sample chapter, find out more about the book and order your copy here.
