Join us to discuss Lynda La Plante’s Tennison: A Jane Tennison Thriller. Before Prime Suspect, there was Tennison. It's1973, and after leaving the Metropolitan Police Training Academy, Jane Tennison is placed on a probationary exercise in Hackney, London where criminality thrives. At first Jane feels out of her depth in this male-dominated, chauvinistic environment until she is assigned her first murder case.

Copies of the book are available at the reference desk while supplies last.
