Jane Tennison's sharp instincts and hard work made her one of the top cops at Scotland Yard, but she's still an outsider when it comes to the boys' club running the force. When her latest investigation--the murder of a presumed prostitute--has her butting heads with colleagues yet again, she's more determined than ever to find justice for the victim. Tennison catches the one clue that's fallen through the cracks, and realizes a madman has been stalking women in London's shadowy streets. She tries to keep her emotions in check as she becomes obsessed with cracking the case, but station-house politics, a crumbling relationship, and a wickedly elusive prime suspect threaten to push her over the edge. A dark and riveting race against the clock.
