She and the other widows could carry out the robbery themselves Novices in the craft of crime, the three women make their preparations. Along the way they discover that Harry’s plan required four people, not three.

Lynda La Plante Portrait 

Author’s Bio

Lynda La Plante (born Lynda Titchmarsh) is a British author, screenwriter, and erstwhile actress (her performances in Rentaghost and other programmes were under her stage name of Lynda Marchal), best known for writing the Prime Suspect television crime series.

Her first TV series as a scriptwriter was the six part robbery series Widows, in 1983, in which the widows of four armed robbers carry out a heist planned by their deceased husbands.

In 1991 ITV released Prime Suspect which has now run to seven series and stars Helen Mirren as DCI Jane Tennison. (In the United States Prime Suspect airs on PBS as part of the anthology program Mystery!) In 1993 La Plante won an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for her work on the series. In 1992 she wrote at TV movie called Seekers, starring Brenda Fricker and Josette Simon, produced by Sarah Lawson.

She formed her own television production company, La Plante Productions, in 1994 and as La Plante Productions she wrote and produced the sequel to Widows, the equally gutsy She’s Out (ITV, 1995). The name “La Plante” comes from her marriage to writer Richard La Plante, author of the book Mantis and Hog Fever. La Plante divorced Lynda in the early 1990s.

Her output continued with The Governor (ITV 1995-96), a series focusing on the female governor of a high security prison, and was followed by a string of ratings pulling miniseries: the psycho killer nightmare events of Trial & Retribution (ITV 1997-), the widows’ revenge of the murders of their husbands & children Bella Mafia (1997) (starring Vanessa Redgrave), the undercover police unit operations of Supply and Demand (ITV 1998), videogame/internet murder mystery Killer Net (Channel 4 1998) and the female criminal profiler cases of Mind Games (ITV 2001).

Two additions to the Trial and Retribution miniseries were broadcast during 2006.

My Review

5 stars

Jess Morgan has a rough life. Her twin sister died which lead to her parents breaking up and her mother, April never really getting over it. April become an alcoholic and has left Jess to basically fend for herself. But Jess learns that there is more to her world than she knew.

Caleb Farmer works for his father’s failing hardware story yet dreams of being an art student. His father destroys Caleb’s art book with leads Caleb to meeting Ivy Stark, a woman that promised her future for fairy inspiration/torture.

Then there is Ninka, a hudskin. She has been charged with raising the latest mortal child. This is the most recent of Catelysm’s play things. But Ninka is about to make a decision that is going to change her world and everything around her.

The three stories wrap around and around until they finally come together with a crash that will throw you off but leave you wanting more. This story is not about Tinkerbell. This story has dark and evil fae that kidnap mortals to torture them to death for the fun of it. Jess has a secret that links her with Faery. But is she strong enough to conquer her foes and rise to her role.

I loved this story. Dark, evil fae, a young girl trying to find her place in this world and learning she doesn’t belong here. I loved how the three stories rotate between each other and then come together. This is a great story and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series, I hope this will be a series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
