Lynda La Plante: Dark Rooms


Lynda la Plante will be opening the festival in style. With 40 bestselling novels, over 5 million copies sold in the UK alone, and a member of The Crime Thriller Awards Hall of Fame, Lynda is truly crime fiction royalty. She is responsible for over 170 hours of primetime TV, including the perennially popular Prime Suspect, and her classic Widows.

Lynda will be chatting about her career and her new novel, Dark Rooms, which sees the return of everyone's favourite detective, Jane Tennison. Helena Lanark is an elderly woman, living in a luxurious care home. The heiress of an immense family fortune, she keeps the secret to the horror which once occurred within the Lanark family house. Tennison is leading a murder investigation into the recent brutal death of a young girl, her decomposed starved body discovered in an old air raid shelter in the garden of the Lanark's now derelict house. Initially the focus is on identifying the victim, until another body is found, hidden in the walls of the shelter. As the investigation and search for answers intensifies, Jane travels to Australia. There she discovers the dark secret, that the Lanark family has kept hidden for decades. A secret, that not only threatens to bring down a family dynasty, but also places Jane Tennison in mortal danger . . .
