Product description

Review

Above Suspicion is a really good thriller with a sympathetic heroine.
--
Daily American

snappy...zippy new mystery
--
Entertainment Weekly

A page-turning, nail-biting, and utterly gripping work of crime fiction.
--
True Romance magazine

Battle-scarred Jane Tennyson moves offstage to make room for a fresh, unlined face...La Plante has given us a smart, plucky series protagonist who's enormously likable despite, or because of, her frailties.
--
Kirkus Reviews

For those who love mysteries, and only wish that American crime writer Patricia Cornwell had a dirtier mind,
Above Suspicion is their book. With the book's American release, Lynda La Plante, the British author of the Prime Suspect novels, is back with more bondage, buggery and blasphemy...This perky detective may not only capture the killer and avenge the virgin, but she also emerges as a woman. In the process, La Plante's dead hooker whodunit has turned into an ugly duckling fairy tale
--
Los Angeles Times

La Plante keeps readers devouring pages at a murderous rate with this mystery starring detective Anna Travis, the clever daughter of a former London police chief.
--
People magazine

Lynda La Plante practically invented the thriller. She is without a doubt one of the best writers working today.
Above Suspicion blew me away -- it grabs you and doesn't let go until the last page.
-- Karin Slaughter, author of
Faithless and Indelible

More than just an excellent mystery,
Above Suspicion provides a dramatic look at victims and victimization. Author Lynda La Plante doesn't stop until she squeezes the last drop of emotion from the situation. The story and characters seamlessly flow into a reader's awareness as a complete and compelling reality. For a little added pleasure, an understated romance filters through the detectives' day-to-day grind. Highly recommended.

Romance Reviews Today

Most people hear best-selling British author La Plante's name and think of embattled Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison...here she returns to the familiar (and beloved) police procedural. In this sharp and fast-paced book...as always, La Plante excels at involving readers in the inner workings of a police investigation. Recommended for public libraries.
--
Library Journal

This is a terrific British police procedural...The triangular relationships add suspense as the audience wonders whether the naive rookie will fall for the seductive charm of the polished actor or will she act on her admiration and attraction to her superior. Lynda La Plante, author of the delightful Prime Suspect series, provides a marvelous first act to the elation of the sub-genre.
