About this deal

When the body of a young woman is discovered close to a highway service station, Detective Inspector Anna Travis is brought on to the team of investigators by her former lover and boss, Detective Chief Superintendent Langton. Getting used to the change in command in CID it has not stopped her ambition to become a detective and when she gets the chance to work undercover to try to stop the spate of attacks on women she doesn’t think twice even if it could put her in danger.

Lynda La Plante bestowed John Moores University with a creative writing scholarship in her hometown of Liverpool and is an honorary member of the British Film Institute.To read more about the site or if you want a graphic to link to us, see the about page for more details. Having avidly read all the Tennison books, it has been marvellous to read how Jane became DCI Tennison. When a prostitute is found murdered in her bedsit, the Metropolitan police set to work finding the perpetrator of this brutal attack.

Young Anna Travis has been assigned to her first murder case - a series of killings that has shocked even the most hardened o. She was awarded a CBE in the 2008 Queen's Birthday Honours List (for services to Literature, Drama and to Charity), and was presented with the prestigious TV Spielfilm Award for her television adaptation of her novel Above Suspicion at the International Film and Television Festival Conference in Cologne.

In 1991 ITV released Prime Suspect which has now run to seven series and stars Helen Mirren as DCI Jane Tennison. The next book in the series is going to be a bittersweet one as although I am looking forward to reading it, it will mark the end of Tennison, a series I have thoroughly enjoyed. I have followed Lynda la Plante's Jane Tennison from the beginning over many years and this was just as good and fresh as always. Lynda La Plante has managed to capture the 1970’s perfectly and her descriptions put you right in the middle of the investigations.

When an unidentified woman is discovered raped and murdered at a service station off the M1 motorway in La Plante's gripping sixth novel featuring London Det. Friends from across the industry joined LaPlante and her publishing team as it was revealed that Zaffre, LaPlante’s fiction publisher, will publish the memoir of the legendary Queen of Crime Drama in spring 2024. Now I stand to be corrected but in the previous book "Eddie", Jane's boyfriend, was referred to as "Eddie Fraser". Lynda La Plante has also written several standalone novels, including Twisted, which was released in 2014.The seeming conclusion of this case results in Jane getting her chance to prove herself in CID in a new station based in Bow Street and a reunion with one of her old colleagues from Hackney and her first case, an apparent suicide. In contrast to La Plante’s breakout Prime Suspect books, police procedurals that took an unflinching look at sexism directed against female officers, this series kickoff offers mostly soap opera. Anna finds a piece of information that links the killings to a much loved (not to mention well known) actor. In what is sure to be an unmissable event, the indisputable Queen of Drama, will be sharing her extraordinary life and writing career.

As a retired police officer myself, I can say that she explores and provides in-depth knowledge of police and forensic procedure to a really high level, and that alone is very impressive considering she was never actually a serving police office herself. Her investigations reveal that after the tragic death of a young girl, her boyfriend appears to have vanished without a trace. All the killings are identical, all the girls have the same background as they all work as prostitutes.She followed up with several successful television series, including Prime Suspect, which starred Helen Mirren as Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison. With a well-publicized career and many awards to boot, it is obvious that Lynda La Plante is a force to be reckoned with, and may just find her way onto our televisions in one way or another over the next few years.
