Storyline

Two Bosnian Muslim sisters, Samira and Jasmina Blekic, seek refuge in England after war ravages their homeland. They work in menial jobs and attract no notice until the elder sister, Samira, is found in an abandoned building, sadistically tortured and murdered. The coroner finds some of the torture scars were only days old but many were over a decade old. D. Super Tennison is so passionate about resolving this case, she takes it out of the hands of the DCI she put in charge. If Jane and her team can get to the bottom of old hatreds and past conflicts, and find Duscan Zigic, their prime suspect, they might be able to save the younger sister, Yasmina. But, are Jane Tennison's cases ever simple? Written by LA-Lawyer

Deadly Threats to the Immigrant Population
28 October 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Our favorite feisty police inspector is on the case of a young Bosnian girl who has been murdered. This brings her into contact with a man who may be an assassin. The girl's sister is in constant danger, but because of their fears and unwillingness to be up front, a disastrous thing comes to pass. So often in this series a suspect is held and then needs to be released. Helen Mirren is once again the unpopular leader who is facing obstacles that are really quite realistic, considering the circumstances of international politic. Police work is hard and there are no easy answers. There is also collateral damage along the way.
