| Author : Lynda La Plante Genre : Fiction & Literature Books Price : $9.99 Release Date : 2012-10-23 Description : Award-winning and international bestselling author Lynda La Plante brings back her popular series character, London Detective Chief Inspector Anna Travis of the Murder Squad, to work a seventh case in Blood Line. La Plante, who bestselling crime fiction author Karin Slaughter (Blindsided) says “practically invented the thriller,” is best known for her Prime Suspect novels, the basis for the wildly popular BBC series starring Helen Mirren and a recent U.S. incarnation featuring Maria Bello. In Blood Line, Anna takes on a high profile missing person investigation which might well develop into the hunt for a murderer, especially when a pool of blood is discovered but no body. Crime fiction fans who appreciate a good cop and a good murder—especially Ian Rankin, Ruth Rendell, Elizabeth George, Peter Robinson, and Val McDermid readers—will be eagerly following the trail of evidence every step of the way.|

»Det här är både spännande och väldigt välskrivet. Julklappstips!« | GOMORRON SVERIGE
»Vi möter här den unga, intelligenta och ambitiösa Jane Tennison, i en njutbar spänningsroman med uppslukande handling och högt tempo.« | THE GUARDIAN
I Tennison skildrar Lynda La Plante författaren bakom den brittiska kriminalserien Prime Suspect [I mördarens spår] - än en gång huvudpersonen Jane Tennison: den här gången som nyutexaminerad polis i problemdistriktet Hackney i östra London.
Året är 1973 och i den manschauvinistiska polismiljön tvingas Tennison snabbt lära sig hantera chockerande situationer utan någon som helst hjälp eller sympati från sina överordnade. Snart blir hon involverad i sitt första mordfall: en ung, heroinberoende kvinna har hittats död. Strypt.
Brittiska Prime Suspect är en av de mest innovativa kriminal-TV-serierna någonsin. För sin realism och råa ton, men mest för huvudpersonen Jane Tennison, en av de första kvinnliga TV-deckarlegenderna (spelad av Helen Mirren).
Även Tennison har nu adapterats för en TV-serie - med manus av Lynda La Plante själv - och kommer att premiärvisas i brittisk TV under hösten 2016.
LYNDA LA PLANTE, född i Liverpool 1943, är en brittisk romanförfattare och manusförfattare. Hon tilldelades det prestigefyllda litteraturpriset Edgar Allan Poe Writers Award för TV-serien Prime Suspect. Serien vann även en Emmy Award.
