Overview

BEFORE PRIME SUSPECT THERE WAS TENNISON.
Every legend has a beginning....

During 1974 and 1975 the IRA subjected London to a terrifying bombing campaign. In one day alone, they planted seven bombs at locations across central London. Some were defused - some were not.

Jane Tennison is now a fully-fledged detective. On the way to court one morning, Jane passes through Covent Garden Underground station and is caught up in a bomb blast that leaves several people dead, and many horribly injured. Jane is a key witness, but is adamant that she can't identify the bomber. When a photograph appears in the newspapers, showing Jane assisting the injured at the scene, it puts her and her family at risk from IRA retaliation.

Good Friday is the eagerly awaited date of the annual formal CID dinner, due to take place at St Ermin's Hotel. Hundreds of detectives and their wives will be there. It's the perfect target. As Jane arrives for the evening, she realises that she recognises the parking attendant as the bomber from Covent Garden. Can she convince her senior officers in time, or will another bomb destroy London's entire detective force?

"La Plante excels in her ability to pick out the surprising but plausible details that give her portrayal of everyday life in a police station a rare ring of authenticity" —Sunday Telegraph

Wow!  I have to say these books get better and better with each one.  So far this has been my favorite.  It was a gripping thriller, that had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.  I was scared to put it down, afraid I was going to miss something.  Now that is what you call a fantastic drama. In this third book of the Tennison series, Jane has just joined the Dip Squad and it is not what she expected at all.  But when the IRA bombs Covenant Garden and Jane is the key witness to the attack, she finds herself deep in the bomb squads investigation.  Things are not what they seem and it always seems as if being a woman is an excuse for them to use her.  Jane seems to be making several unintentional mistakes, which could cost her her career.  Can Jane figure out the IRA's next move before it blows up in her face? This book was hands down the best one yet.  The first two were good, but this one was intense.  A gripping thriller of a ride.  A page turner that will have you gripping the edge of your seat and biting your fingernails down till there is nothing left.  Plus this time Jane has a love triangle going on.  As three guys show interest in the beautiful Jane Tennison. I love how each book is another step in her career, where we get to be introduced to new characters.  The characters are very interesting and entertaining.  Especially this new squad.  Look at Stanley.  Man he is an odd duckie.  Smelly and trashy looking, but deep down an outstanding and brave man.  Dexter.  Oh Dexter.  He is the playboy of the bomb squad with a death wish hanging over his head.  Sexy and hot, but deep down there is a caring person.  These are just a couple of the interesting people we meet in this book.  But let us not forget our old characters.  They still make appearances in each book, which I love.  Especially Lawrence.  Man I wish him and Jane would hook up.  ;) I cannot wait for the next installment Murder Mile to come out in September.  Jane will be a newly promoted Sargent and knee-deep in murder.  So pick up this whole series today.  You won't regret it.
