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

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

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!
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.
