Good Friday (Tennison, #3)Good Friday by Lynda La Plante

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every legend has a beginning . . .
During 1974 and 1975 the IRA subjected London to a terrifying bombing campaign. In one day alone, they planted seven bombs at locations across central London. Some were defused – some were not.
Jane Tennison is now a fully-fledged detective. On the way to court one morning, Jane passes through Covent Garden Underground station and is caught up in a bomb blast that leaves several people dead, and many horribly injured.
Crikey, what a rattling good read! At first I wasn’t sure about reading about the early career of Jane Tennison. Then I watched the tv drama and was hooked. I like Jane as a character and its really interesting to see how she develops her skills and enthusiasm for the job. The writing brings the drama to life and draws us into the mid1970’s when the IRA were determined to disrupt British life as much as possible. As much a drama as a crime thriller this book is hard to put down!
