Overview

Prime Suspect by Lynda La Plante

An international bestseller, Lynda La Plante’s thrilling detective novel Prime Suspect introduced readers around the world to Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison, a gritty investigator locked in a tooth-and-nail struggle to claim the authority, acceptance, and respect she deserves from Scotland Yard's chauvinist detective squad—even as she desperately tracks the maniac now running loose in the streets of London. Fans of Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone books and the work of Kathy Reichs or Karin Slaughter will be immediately drawn to La Plante’s Jane Tennison, the remarkable, no-nonsense police woman who laid the groundwork for all the rest who followed.

Very slow narration and all the discrimination focus just slows it down even further.  Very dissatisfying.

Of us who prefer classic english this new trend of unwanted but then promoted lady cops is the theme now in just too many english mysteries plus the encreased grafic violence and sex.
