Hidden Killers

The 2nd book in the Tennison series

Hidden Killers by Lynda La Plante book cover

They hide in plain sight.

Hidden Killers sees Jane acting as a ‘decoy’ prostitute, with the hope of capturing a suspect wanted for numerous sexual assaults. The attacker is drawn in and put under arrest.

Commended for bravery in the case, Jane is given CID status and moves from Hackney to Bow Street Station as Detective.

Her first call-out is to a non-suspicious death. The victim is a young mother, drowned tragically in her bath, leaving a bereft and doting husband and a young child.

The two storylines interweave as Jane begins to doubt the evidence against her assailant in East London, and becomes certain that the young woman in the bath did not drown in tragic circumstances. Two entirely different cases but one common thread – the lingering doubt in Jane’s mind around the evidence, and around her colleagues…
