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.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'm not fan of gruesome serial killers, so this was perfect in the sense of a proper plot with not too much gore and some 'detecting' within it.
La Plante has an easy style and the setting is in England, so the language and the justice system set it aside from American novels which is more to my taste.
