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.

Excellent

Enjoyed this story. My first Book by Lynda La Plante. Well written and a great story line.

Fantastic Narration by Anna Louise Plowman. I will keep an eye out for more of her books.

Young Tennison

Usual good level of suspense. A few anachronisms in the dialogue. The reader left something to be desired. Accents vary enough that I wasn’t always sure which character was speaking.

Another great story from Lynda La Plante

Set in the 1970’s and reflecting very much the attitudes of the times, this is an involved and detailed story. Very lengthy dialogue but easy to picture the scenes and characters.

Review

I believe this was published in 2018, full of political incorrectness, first and last time I’d read this author

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.

enjoyable

great story which I would recommend. well read but the terrible accents spoilt it for me and made me cringe (Scots and jamaican),it would be better if the narrator didn't try accents that are really bad and just read it in her own voice as they are not needed or relevant to the story.

Reasonable read

I was hoping for a bit more from this book. It was my first Lynda La Plante. Performance was pretty good, although some of the accents challenged the narrator. It did drag a little in places and would probably be a better TV episode than book.

What an Author!

My first Jane Tennison book and I'll read the rest for sure. Had my attention from start to finish, not a moment of boredom, the story flowed and interested me. Very satisfying.
