For Jackie, A Guiding Light. When I was commissioned to write Prime Suspect for Granada Television, I had no notion that it would change my life. I had been very successful writing a series called Widows, but it had not resulted in offers of work that I felt excited about. The plot of Widows pivoted on four men attempting a dangerous armed robbery, and all died when the explosives held in their truck exploded.

Crime writer Lynda La Plante announces she is writing a prequel to her hugely successful TV series, Prime Suspect. The book will be published in 2015 and the TV adaptation will air in 2016, the 25th anniversary year of Prime Suspect. When you first meet her (Tennison) in the early 90s, she is a very complex character, but what made her so?" La Plante said in a press release. The international bestselling author added: "Nobody knows what drove her to become a DCI or want to join the police force in the first place

I have read all of Lynda La Plante's Ana Travis novels, which I loved Prime Suspect 2 was just as good

I have read all of Lynda La Plante's Ana Travis novels, which I loved. The suspense and character development in each of her novels is superb. I thought I would try these earlier novels. I was not disappointed. Prime Suspect 1 was so engrossing that, as with any really good book, I was heartbroken when I finished it. Prime Suspect 2 was just as good. Although these books deal with very gruesome and troubling crimes, the book focusses on the lead character DCI Tennison's flaws and attributes and her difficulties in dealing with a sexist police culture.

Lynda La Plante's many novels, including the Prime Suspect series, have all been international bestsellers. She is an honorary fellow of the British Film Institute and a member of the UK Crime Writers Awards Hall of Fame. She was awarded a CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list in 2008.

In the dark night of the soul . . . . If  Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison hadn't been a  woman, she might not have noticed the victim's shoes  . . . . and that they didn't match the size given on  the info sheet now so obviously misidentifying the  dead blonde as a hooker named Della Mornay. Being  so through, so good at the details, made Jane a  top investigator; being a woman made the boys in the  squadron want to see her fall on her face. But  Jane Tennison was determined to catch the madman  stalking women in London's street shadows. She had a  prime suspect, and she needed to make the charges  against him stick. She also needed to keep her  own secret in check: she couldn't let anyone see  that she was falling apart inside, as her obsession  with cracking this case and breaking out from  under the heel of the station house boy's club took  over life, destroying her relationship with the man  she loved, pushing her closer and closer to the  dark urges of a killer . . . .

This is the first episode of the worldwide highly successful TV series "Prime Suspect," that propelled Helen Mirren into superstardom as DCI Jane Tennison. If I enjoyed the TV series (watched all of it) because it was entirely different than American cop shows, I enjoyed the book even more. I usually don't read many female whodunit/mystery writers but Lynda La Plante is an exception, right there with P.D. James and Faye Kellerman's Decker Series. The plot is not just interesting and well developed but also shows the underbelly of a good-old-boys, misogynist organization and the blatant discrimination against women on the force. Tennison has to do more and better than her fellow equal rank colleagues, dealing with not just finding a criminal but also with the animosity and open sabotage of her underlings. Just like Ginger Rogers, who did everything Fred Astaire did, on high heels and backward but never got the same credit.

I'm kind of a snob where crime writing is concerned, if it's not excellent I put the book down. Though I have watched the BBC TV Series on PBS for years I have never read the books. I love Ms. La Plante's writing. It is spare but true. Sometimes while reading the dialog I realize it was lifted directly to the screen. I read this book in one sitting, couldn't put it down except to make lunch and dinner. Even though I knew the outcome from the series, I was still totally immersed until the last page. I just went on my Library site to see what other books of hers were available.

If the rest of the books in this London police procedural are as good as this first one, I think I have a new favorite. Jane Tennison is a woman in a male realm of London police detectives. Though very competent, the powers that be are reluctant to put her in charge of a major case, and the men in he squad are equally against being bossed by a woman. When she is the only one available for a high profile case, no one, except herself, wants to see her succeed. Full of complex characters, and sporting an intriguing mystery, this kept me engaged from page one to the end.

Jane Tennison is in of the great detectives of mystery. I have always loved the TV series. Only recently, I was pleased to find that Lynda LaPlante wrote books based on the series featuring Tennison. Prime Suspect 1 is gritty, and unflinching in its look at a hideous murder that evolves evermore grisly at every turn. LaPlante is masterful at building a tense story arc, with the last 100 pages being especially taut and satisfying, as mysteries go. In the TV series, Tennison was always a fascinating, raw character — a driven, hard hitting detective, deeply flawed in her personal life, while plowing through deep-seeded chauvinism at work, fiercely fighting a male-dominated workplace just to do her job. In this book, LaPlante captures that same dynamic with equal brilliancy through the the expertly developed character study of Tennison, a woman consumed in the pursuit of her career, but whose personal life is somewhat in shambles as a result. All comes at a price though, just as it comes to the evil perpetrator who Tennison doggedly pursues to exact justice in Prime Suspect 1.

I put off reading this for some time, having seen and loved the films. But even though I knew what was going to happen next, I found it impossible to put the book down. GREAT page-turner!

I don't really know what I read. Was this a novel made AFTER the shows, from like a screenplay? I'm not sure, but I really didn't like this, and I LOVE the series, and thought, yes, I have the opportunity to spend more time with Jane Tennison, of course I'm going to do it. And I do remember some of the details in the book from watching the series (which was awhile ago). But the book is really not well written, and while as a fan of shows/games/etc I am willing to give a writer a LOT of leeway in writing quality if I like the characters/story, I just couldn't quite go there with this one. The point of views shifts would have been fine in tv or film, but didn't at all make sense in the novel, and it felt like a (bad) novelization of a screenplay. I really wanted more Prime Suspect books, but while I did manage to finish this one, I can't force myself to read another, unfortunately. Guess I'll just rewatch the series!

I saw the British television production before I read this and loved the TV version. To my surprise, the TV version was very true to the original book, so much so that the cast selections seemed perfect and I could picture them as I read. Also, having seen the TV version, I of course knew the outcome. But the writing was so good it didn't matter if I knew the ending, I wanted to read it in the author's own words.

The suspense never disappoints.
Certainly one of my 3 favorite fiction writers.
