An acclaimed writer of best-selling books and award-winning television, Lynda La Plante is the most prolific creator of taut, meticulously observed and forensically correct detective thrillers in the UK. This superb collection brings together three of her most exciting, intense and compelling stories; each unique, and each presenting the kind of sharply written, outspoken and commanding characters she is famous for.
Above Suspicion (2009) For eight years the body count of prostitutes and drug users has risen. Out to prove herself to DCI James Langton (Ciaran Hinds), DC Anna Travis (Kelly Reilly) links an acclaimed actor to the murders. He seems above suspicion, but in getting close to the truth, is she getting too close to a killer? Trial and Retribution: Sins of the Father (2007) DS Walker (David Hayman) and Dl Connor (Victoria Smurfit) are joined at the hip in their search for justice from case to courtroom. When young Emily Harrogate is found dead in her family home, appearances prove deceptive in a house full of secrets and lies. Yet even with the killer uncovered, will justice be done? The Commander: Windows of the Soul (2007) On an East London estate, Commander Blake (Amanda Burton) and DCI James (Mark Lewis Jones) find themselves on opposite sides when the murder of a priest reminds James of his rough-edged youth. But they must work together if they're to catch the killer before he strikes again.
