Unholy Murder, Lynda La Plante

Unholy Murder opening line: The yellow JCB digger was backhoeing a deep trench for the concrete foundations to be laid.

My blurb:

Nick Durham seems like a nice man, and could be the perfect partner for Jane. But Detective Tennison is investigating his father. And she cannot let her personal life get in the way of what seems to have been a callous killing of a young nun.

Unholy Murder

A coffin is dug up by builders in the grounds of an historic convent – inside is the body of a young nun.

In a city as old as London, the discovery is hardly surprising. But when scratch marks are found on the inside of the coffin lid, Detective Jane Tennison believes she has unearthed a mystery far darker than any she’s investigated before.

However, not everyone agrees. Tennison’s superiors dismiss it as an historic cold case, and the Church seems desperate to conceal the facts from the investigation. It’s clear that someone is hiding the truth, and perhaps even the killer. Tennison must pray she can find both – before they are buried forever . . .

In Unholy Murder, Tennison must lift the lid on the most chilling murder case of her career to date.

My verdict of Unholy Murder:

I enjoy the way Lynda La Plante writes, and the Detective Jane Tennison series are highly readable. Add this to your list of books to read if you enjoy a good murder mystery.
