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 cracking 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 sleasiest tabloids, Tennison's already frenzied determination to bring the killer to justice will be catapulted into obsession - one that could send her spiralling over the edge.

**Lynda La Plante's Widows is now a major motion picture**

From the Inside Flap:

as 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
