It's not your average police procedural when Scotland Yard's Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison shows up to solve a murder. DCI Tennison battles not only the clock to catch a murderer of women but also the sexist attitudes of the male police personnel. She is a fully developed character whose attitudes resonate with the reader, and -LaPlante's plot is great. Davina Porter's narration is near perfection in every aspect, from her accents to her masterly use of inflection; she makes listening a real pleasure. Note that LaPlante's teleplay, made famous in the UK by Dame Helen Mirren, won an Edgar Award, which may generate additional interest. VERDICT This thoroughly enjoyable mystery is highly recommended.-Scott R. DiMarco, Mansfield Univ. of Pennsylvania (c) Copyright 2013.
