Guernsey Literary Festival 2014
La Plante has created some of the best-known crime dramas on television, including Widows, Trial and Retribution, Above Suspicion and Prime Suspect. The latter starred Helen Mirren as DCI Jane Tennison and aired in the UK and the US. In 1993 she won an Edgar Allen Poe Award for her work on the series. Her next book, Driven to the Brink, is a standalone thriller centred round the disappearance of a schoolgirl which will be published in June this year.
