Publisher's Summary

From the creator of the award-winning ITV series Prime Suspect, this is Jane Tennison's story, from rookie police officer to fully fledged detective.
Every legend has a beginning....
During 1974 and 1975, the IRA subjected London to a terrifying bombing campaign. In one day alone, they planted seven bombs at locations across central London. Some were defused - some were not.
Jane Tennison is now a fully fledged detective. On the way to court one morning, Jane passes through Covent Garden Underground station and is caught up in a bomb blast that leaves several people dead and many horribly injured. Jane is a key witness but is adamant that she can't identify the bomber. When a photograph appears in the newspapers showing Jane assisting the injured at the scene, it puts her and her family at risk from IRA retaliation.
Good Friday is the eagerly awaited date of the annual formal CID dinner, due to take place at St Ermin's Hotel. Hundreds of detectives and their wives will be there. It's the perfect target. As Jane arrives for the evening, she realises that she recognises the parking attendant as the bomber from Covent Garden. Can she convince her senior officers in time, or will another bomb destroy London's entire detective force?

No suspense in this at all. It’s easy to predict the ending after a few chapters. Not really a mystery at all.

Good Friday

Silly, cliche and hackneyed. A most unbelievable story. Jane Tennison should never have made it out of uniform never mind into a specialized unit.

Do not like the promoting of cigarette smoking.

While this is the usual good book written by Lynda La Plante, having her lead character go from bein a non smoker to taking up smoking cigarettes is disappointing and deplorable. Australia has done so much to reduce cigarette smoking. The author dedicates the book to her Australian and and New Zealand readers, yet disregards our efforts to reduce smoking to prevent the terrible health results from it. A brand is even named, which reeks of product placement. I do not buy books to have cigarettes advertised to me!

Not the Usual Suspect

Unusually for a book/film relationship, "Good Friday", falls well short of both the Prime Suspect and Prime Suspect 1973 screen treatments of La Plante's stories.

I found the writing prosaic, the plot predictable and the characters stereotypical. Jessica Ball's narration, which settled into a rhythm that lacked variation did little to help resuscitate this book.
