Good Friday (Tennison 3)

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.
