Prime Suspect meets Ashes to Ashes as we see Jane Tennison starting out on her police career .
The fourth in the bestselling Jane Tennison thrillers, MURDER MILE is set at the height of the 'Winter of Discontent'. Can Jane Tennison uncover a serial killer? February, 1979, 'The Winter of Discontent'. Economic chaos has led to widespread strikes across Britain. Jane Tennison, now a Detective Sergeant, has been posted to Peckham Criminal Investigation Department, 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.

A Murder to die for
**I received a copy from BookishFirst **
I cannot get enough of Jane Tennison. Before I read the first book about her I had mentioned it to my husband. He told me about the show on PBS he used to watch about her. This intrigued me all the more. My hubby was a cop for years and only watches crime shows that are authentic. This has all my favorite things wrapped into one story! I love how it’s set in the 1970s and the author gets everything correct about that time. I felt like I was back in time. The murders that happen in the book are written so well. Everything about them and the police procedures is so smooth and done so well. What I like most about these books is that they keep me guessing right up to the end. You can also read them in any order and will know what’s going on. Instead of a series, it’s more like stories set in a certain world with the same characters.
