Before Prime Suspect there was Tennison and every legend has to have 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

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lynda la Plante's every word is soaked in suspense. Fast-paced and thrilling, this is a book you'll enjoy whether you're new to Lynda la Plante's books or you're a long-time fan! It's wonderful! * Ronnie Turner Ad Astra *
La Plante is in her element in this suspense-packed crime thriller... As always, the period detail and police procedural are immaculately portrayed, and with a finale guaranteed to leave readers on the edge of their seats, Tennison's early days in the force are proving just as riveting as the experienced slick performer we all still cherish * Lancaster Guardian *
Gritty, realistic, and a real page turner * People's Friend *
