Publisher's Summary

Nominated in Best Female Narrator at the Audie Awards 2020. 

She must fight to prove herself...before it's too late.

DCI Jane Tennison came through the ranks the hard way, opposed and resented at every step by her male colleagues. 

When a prostitute is found murdered in her bedsit, the Metropolitan police set to work finding the perpetrator of this brutal attack. DNA samples lead them straight to known criminal George Marlow. The police think they've found their man, but things are not quite what they seem....

Desperate to remove all doubt around her suspect, Tennison struggles to make the charges stick. And then a second body turns up. 

With the team against her, DCI Jane Tennison is in a race against time to catch a dangerous criminal ­- and prove she's just as tough as any man.

Baseded on the award-winning TV series starring Helen Mirren, the complete and unabridged Prime Suspect trilogy is now available for the first time in audio.

Lynda La Plante at her best

I loved this audio book. A gripping narrative that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first sentence to the last. The narrator was also wonderful and complemented the content perfectly.

Inappropriate narration

Being from the north east I would find it inexplicable if all the characters in Vera had cockney accents,I therefore struggled with all the residents of London having Yorkshire accents. I realise this is probably a petty point but once it had bugged me I couldn't listen without noticing it and eventually gave up on the book. I don't intend this to be a criticism of the narrator I just don't think she was right for this book.

Great!

Loved this, totally brought the visual of the story to life. Fantastic narration, I would have liked all of Lynda’s books to have had the same narrator. Will go to the second in the series now.

Very good

The narrator has done an excellent job with the narration! She manages to do all the different characters, a lot of them male, and really bring them to life. She does actually sound like Helen Mirren as Tennison! Brilliant.

Excellent!

As good if not even better than the original TV show. I was able to picture the actors playing the parts & the narrator brought all of the characters to life.

Jane Tennison, we love you!!

Absolutly brilliant. I found myself seeing Helen Mirren and Tom Bell images throughout my listening. The narrator was excellent, bringing emotion and suspense to the book. Thank you

A Master at Work

Lynda la Plant is called the queen of crime drama and she definitely deserves that title. Her writing is so detailed, the characters incredibly well written and rounded out. I know this story so well from watching it on tele, but to get to listen to the book gives you much more chance to take in the nuances portrayed. Highly recommended.

Prime Listening

Liked the story. Rachel Atkins captured the chacter of DI Tennison well (if a little shrieky at times).
