From Lynda LaPLante's (Prime Suspect) novel.

Above Suspicion follows young Detective Sergeant Anna Travis, daughter of the late Detective Chief Superintendent Jack Travis, as she works her first homicide case. And what a case it is: a serial killer who has brutally murdered prostitutes for the past eight years has suddenly switched to a beautiful young student. DCI Langton, who chose Anna for the team out of respect for her father, pushes her mercilessly. In fact, Anna's complex and heated relationship with her boss is almost as compelling as the chase for the serial killer. When a popular actor is identified as a subject, he denies it all and begins an amorous pursuit of Anna. Flattered by his attention and confused by her feelings for Langton, Anna finds herself in grave danger. (from

"I have always been enamoured of Ciarán Hinds the actor, Lynda La Plante said. He brings a weight and stature that is required to play DCI Langton. We have worked together before and I have always hoped we would work together again and I am thrilled that he will be Langton."
