9780062134370: Prime Suspect (Prime Suspect (Harper))

A woman is murdered and the police have a prime suspect, but cannot prove it. Detective Jane Tennison fights to solve the crime and win the respect of her fellow, male, officers. "Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.

Product Description:

In the dark night of the soul . . . . 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 through, 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 . . . .

Book Description Harper Paperbacks, 2012. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: An international bestseller, Lynda La Plante's thrilling detective novel Prime Suspect introduced readers around the world to Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison, a gritty investigator locked in a tooth-and-nail struggle to claim the authority, acceptance, and respect she deserves from Scotland Yard's chauvinist detective squadeven as she desperately tracks the maniac now running loose in the streets of London. Fans of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone books and the work of Kathy Reichs or Karin Slaughter will be immediately drawn to La Plante's Jane Tennison, the remarkable, no-nonsense police woman who laid the groundwork for all the rest who followed.
