Good Friday (Tennison #3) by Lynda La Plante.

Jane's introduction to the Dip Squad is nothing like she imagined in this third book of the Tennison series. The IRA bombing of Covenant Garden leads Jane to become a central figure in the investigation. Women are often used and their experiences are not what they seem. It seems that Jane's career is in jeopardy because of her recurring unintentional mistakes. Is Jane capable of anticipating the IRA's next move before it becomes a problem for her? There is no question that this book was the best one yet. The initial two were solid, but this one was intense.

A gripping thriller of a ride. Get ready for a thrilling read that will have you gripping the edge of your seat and biting your nails in anticipation. Plus, this time Jane has a love triangle going on. Three men express interest in the beautiful Jane Tennison.

I love how each book is a new chapter in her career, giving us the chance to meet new characters. Both the characters are interesting and entertaining.

Many thanks to @LaPlanteLynda @ZaffreBooks & @Tr4cyF3nt0n for a spot on the tour.
