Publisher's Summary

Can Jane Tennison uncover a serial killer?  

The fourth in the Sunday Times best-selling Jane Tennison thrillers, Murder Mile is set in 1979 at the height of the 'Winter of Discontent', when economic chaos has led to widespread strikes across Britain.  

Jane Tennison, now a Detective Sergeant, has been posted to Peckham CID, one of London's toughest areas. As the rubbish on the streets begins to pile up, so does the murder count: two bodies in as many days.  

There are no suspects, and the manner of death is different in each case. The only link between the two victims is the location of the bodies, found within a short distance of each other near Rye Lane in Peckham. Three days later another murder occurs in the same area. Press headlines scream that a serial killer is loose on 'Murder Mile' and that police incompetence is hampering the investigation.  

Jane is under immense pressure to catch the killer before they strike again. Working long hours with little sleep, what she uncovers leaves her doubting her own mind.

Lynda La Plante

I’ve always loved the tv series with Helen Mirren (prime suspect).
Once I found the books, I enjoyed them even more.

I thought I'd Like these more....

I am a huge fan of Lynda la plante and the Jane Tennyson stories so when they started making prequels to the Prime Suspect books I was pretty excited. After reading the first 4, I admit that I'm having a bit of a difficult time. The environment is so unceasingly negative it can be difficult to read the stories. The hatred and backstabbing of the male detectives is so unceasing it just gets depressing. At first I was interested in following Jane's journey but after 4 books, it's pretty clear why she ends up a lonely alcoholic. The actual mysteries are good with tight plots and interesting characters. I prefer the narrator of the 4th book as she wasn't so girlish. I will try 1 more book but I am not sure how much more I want to read about Jane's terrible mistreatment at the hands of the male establishment.
