Chief Detective Inspector Jane Tennison has moved up the ranks, fighting every step of the way to break through the station house's glass ceiling. Now, on her first day as the head of the Vice Squad, a case comes in that threatens to destroy everything she has worked for.
As Vera Reynolds, drag queen and night club star, swayed onstage singing "Falling in Love Again", a sixteen-year-old rent boy lay in the older man's apartment, engulfed in flames. When Tennison's investigation reveals an influential public figure as her prime suspect, a man with connections to politicians, judges, and Scotland Yard, she's given a very clear message about the direction some very important people would like her investigation to take. Suddenly, in a case defined by murky details, one fact becomes indisputably clear - that for Tennison, going after the truth will mean risking her happiness, her career, and even her life.

"Dissapointing Audio Presentation"
I've not seen any of the televised books of Lynda La Plante but always have enjoyed reading the books and since recently listening to the Audio Versions. The content of this one 'Prime Suspect 3' was great, but the Audio Presentation was very dissapointing. The narrative was rather flat and every sentence ended in the same low pitch; which made it rather difficult for me to keep up with the story line.
I do like Ms La Plante but was very disappointed with this book - primarily with the narration it was truly awful. Normally I will listen to a book to the end but this took me over a month and then didn't keep me that interested at all to be honest to the point that I listened to 2 other books before coming back to this one. I think it's time that they change the narrator.
