Summary

Can Jane Tennison uncover a serial killer?  

The fourth in the Sunday Times best-selling Jane Tennison thrillers, Murder Mile is set in 1979 at the height of the 'Winter of Discontent', when economic chaos has led to widespread strikes across Britain.  

Jane Tennison, now a Detective Sergeant, has been posted to Peckham CID, one of London's toughest areas. As the rubbish on the streets begins to pile up, so does the murder count: two bodies in as many days.  

There are no suspects, and the manner of death is different in each case. The only link between the two victims is the location of the bodies, found within a short distance of each other near Rye Lane in Peckham. Three days later another murder occurs in the same area. Press headlines scream that a serial killer is loose on 'Murder Mile' and that police incompetence is hampering the investigation.  

Jane is under immense pressure to catch the killer before they strike again. Working long hours with little sleep, what she uncovers leaves her doubting her own mind.

Superb story... dodgy accent warning

Well paced and researched story with well formed characters all round. The only criticism I have is the narrator’s Scottish accent god one character which cane straight out of Brigadoon via Ballamory - grating.

Brilliant but WOW at the accents!

A great story as you'd expect. The narration is really good except for attempts at accents. A Scottish and, far worse, a Jamaican character come out very badly!

Brilliant Installment

Another great instalment in this series, Lynda La Plante shows yet again why she is the queen of the crime genre.

I've said it before but I'll say it again, in this book you can see more of the character that Jane Tennison is going to grow in to. I think in this book you can really see her nitty gritty detective techniques being honed and also her interview technique being brought to the fore. She is fighting even more in this book as a female detective in a male dominated career, and I'm looking forward to her getting more confidence in herself and really fighting that corner even more so than before.
