About this deal

This is down to me enjoying murder mysteries over bank robberies. Whatever Lynda writes about, her knowledge and research of police and forenic procedures is extremely impressive and thorough. Lynda also mixes in some police drama comedy too which I love. DCI John Barnaby, Hattie Bainbridge and DS Jamie Winter in Midsomer Murders. BENTLEY PRODUCTIONS FOR ITV Tough, brilliant and damaged, [Tennison] shook up the genre forever by showing a female detective overcoming sexism and adversity to reach the top' - DAILY EXPRESS

Her first TV series as a scriptwriter was the six part robbery series Widows, in 1983, in which the widows of four armed robbers carry out a heist planned by their deceased husbands. I have not read all of the books in this series and this can easily be read as a stand alone. The series takes place in the 1970s- 80s (this one is based in 1982 based on the Pope’s visit to the UK). It’s a good reminder of how we all survived without cell phones, the internet, etc. and when we had to rely on actual paper records.

So I made a bit of a mistake, I got the book without realising it was part of a series of books, however I read it and can honestly say I LOVED it…I haven’t read a book in ages but I’m so glad I got this book. There was a lot of interesting information about the church, sisters vs nuns, convents and burial rites in the book. Lots of different theories tying into the murder(s), one of which was that the builders were involved. Or was it other nuns? A local priest? The Bishop had done some serious, serious cover ups in the past so the plethora of potential suspects and theories kept it interesting for me. The church looks real great in this one but it was interesting to see internal politics in play. Playing alongside John Nettles was Jane Wymark as DCI Tom Barnaby's on-screen wife. Jane shares Poldark in common with her former co-star, however Jane appeared in the original series aired in 1977. Jane's also appeared in shows such as Doctors and mini-series Jo. La Plante is a great author whose books I have featured several times over the last few years. Best known for her work in British television, where she produced and wrote several shows and television movies, La Plante has really started to focus more on her novels recently, producing some awesome and compelling reads. Out of all her recent works, the one I have been enjoying the most is the outstanding Jane Tennison series. Serving as a prequel to the acclaimed Prime Suspect television series, the Jane Tennison novels follow a younger version of the show’s protagonist, the titular Jane Tennison, as she works her way up the ranks of the Metropolitan Police. This series has so far contained several awesome and impressive novels, including Good Friday, Murder Mile, The Dirty Dozen and Blunt Force. The latest entry in the series, Unholy Murder, contained another amazing mystery that sets the protagonist against the dangerous influence of the Catholic Church. Annette Badland had a role in the drama's latest series, which aired in January of this year, as Fleur Perkins, a witty pathologist. After beginning her career in the theatre, Annette became best known for her work in Doctor Who, EastEnders and Outlander.

Jane Tennison is on the case again when a strange coffin with the body of a young nun is found buried in an old convent, that no one expected. Of course, the burial is not as peaceful as it seems.In a city as old as London, the discovery is hardly surprising. But when scratch marks are found on the inside of the coffin lid, Detective Jane Tennison believes she has unearthed a mystery far darker than any she's investigated before. It’s clear that someone is hiding the truth, and perhaps even the killer. Tennison must pray she can find both – before they are buried forever . . . Now, the characters. I have never been so annoyed by the main female lead before this book. Jane Tennison is supposed to be a detective with years of experience, so you expect her to be good at her job. She was the worst.
