Jane Tennison is a probationer with the police in London and is working hard to become a detective. Her character is portrayed realistically; she is a young woman on her own for the first time in her life and is making decisions that could affect her career and the lives of others. She is clever and witty, so the book is entertaining. Jane inadvertently comes across evidence that there could be a bank robbery about to happen, so she helps the police department set up an important sting to catch all of the would-be thieves. Jane befriends several people in her section, DCI Bradfield, who is her supervisor and Kath Morgan, another probationer like her. All of the characters are so lifelike that reading the book was like watching a movie. And at the end of the book, you certainly want to know more about how Jane makes out in life and if she ever becomes the detective that she wants to be. Filled with humor and wit, this is a must-read for those who enjoy British mysteries.
