The fast-paced followup to Lynda La Plante’s first Prime Suspect thriller, Prime Suspect 2: A Face in the Crowd brings reunites readers with Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison as she hunts down a mysterious killer hidden amidst London’s dark streets and dockways—and as she continues to struggle against the male dominated politics of Scotland Yard.

From the Publisher:

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 . . .

From the Back Cover:

The coroner’s report identifies the body as young, black, female, and impossibly anonymous. Yet one thing is clear to Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison about the latest victim discovered in one of London’s poorest districts—that news of her murder will tear apart a city already crackling with racial tensions, hurling Scotland Yard and Tennison herself into a maelstrom of shocking accusations and sudden, wrenching violence.

Even as London’s brutal killer remains at large, Tennison remains locked in a struggle to overcome her station house’s brutal chauvinism and insidious politicking. And as the department’s deeply rooted racism rears its head to overshadow every facet of her new investigation, the trail of her prime suspect is growing colder. Worse, when the details of the beleaguered detective’s stormy personal life explode across the headlines of London’s sleaziest tabloids, Tennison’s already frenzied determination to bring the killer to justice will be catapulted into obsession—one that could send her spiraling over the edge.
