The victim was young. Female. And black. Her skull had been smashed in, her face decomposed beyond all recognition. But for Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison, the corpse that had just been found in one of London's poorest communities was only the beginning of a case that would tear apart an already divided city…and embroil the gritty cop and her force in a hotbed of racial strife, shocking accusations, and sudden, wrenching violence. But Jane Tennison was not a woman who let anything get in the way of her passion for justice. Not the racism of some of the boys in the station house, or the slippery politicking of her superiors. Not even when her own stormy love life explodes in sleazy tabloid headlines. Because a brutal and seductive killer was still at large, luring innocent girls from London's midnight streets. And because for Jane Tennison, stalking her prime suspect has become an obsession-one that could send her spiraling over the edge…

The story was engaging and interesting
The narrator was fine except that she had to do so many different male voices it became quite difficult to tell them apart which made the story confusing at times
wow what an ending. I did not see that coming but I understand how she felt. Jane put in some work solving this case which wasn't easy because there were many people involved in this murder.. I thought when the young man killed himself in custody that she was in for some trouble, but she ended up doing a great job at solving the case, so I was shocked when she got passed up for the promotion. Ready for book 3
Narration was excellent, but story telling was unfortunately poor. Disappointed with an ending that fell flat. Won't be reading any more by this author.
