If Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison hadn't been a woman, she might not have noticed the victim's shoes…and that they didn't match the size given on the info sheet now so obviously misidentifying the dead blonde as a hooker named Della Mornay. Being so thorough, so good at the details, made Jane a top investigator; being a woman made the boys in the squadron want to see her fall on her face. But Jane Tennison was determined to catch the madman stalking women in London's street shadows. She had a prime suspect, and she needed to make the charges against him stick. She also needed to keep her own secret in check: she couldn't let anyone see that she was falling apart inside, as her obsession with cracking this case and breaking out from under the heel of the station house boy's club took over life, destroying her relationship with the man she loved, pushing her closer and closer to the dark urges of a killer…

La Plante's first and best Tennyson novel
I knew the story well but was interested in listening to the book after watching the TV drama series. The narrator is an excellent choice because she sounds like the Helen Mirren. I know that shouldn't necessarily be a factor but when you have seen the movie you expect to hear a tone of voice similar to what you remember. The book is brilliant and it was great to hear Linda La Plante talking about how she researched the Helen Mirren role.

La Plante always is true to form
What made the experience of listening to Prime Suspect #1 the most enjoyable?
Ms. Porter captures the nuances of the text and brings characters to life. She is easy to listen to and I look for books she narrates.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Plot was complex with many layers, as in life in general
What does Davina Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Davinia does an excellent job bringing characters to life, no matter who the character is, a great talent.
