Publisher's Summary

It seems like a straightforward domestic murder until a bloodstained sliver of X-ray is found clutched in the dead woman's fist - and it quickly becomes clear that this case is anything but ordinary. Thorne discovers that the victim's mother had herself been murdered fifteen years before by infamous serial killer Raymond Garvey. The hunt to catch Garvey was one of the biggest in the history of the Met, and ended with seven women dead.

When more bodies and more fragments of X-ray are discovered, Thorne has a macabre jigsaw to piece together until the horrifying picture finally emerges. A killer is targeting the children of Raymond Garvey's victims. Thorne must move quickly to protect those still on the murderer's list, but nothing and nobody are what they seem. Not when Thorne is dealing with one of the most twisted killers he has ever hunted...

    "another superb book by Billingham."

    I don't normally write reviews, in fact, this is only the second I've written since joining Audible nearly a year ago but I felt compelled to write one for this book. After taking a break last year to publish 'In The Dark' Mark Billingham returns to popular charictor DI Tom Thorne. I'm not going to re-hash the plot, the discription above the reviews sums it up but, if you've enjoyed the other books in this series, this is certainly one not to miss. As usual, the story moves along at a cracking pace with gritty, believable charictors and a great thrilling plot. DI Thorne becomes a more complex (and in my oppinion my real) main pratagonist with each novel as we learn more about this troubled London policeman. I particularly enjoyed the sections dealing with Thorne's attempts to offer emotional support to his live-in girlfriend Louise after they both suffer a personal tragety.

    finally, as its an audio book site, something about the reading. Its very rare that I would choose to by an abridged version, normally, I'll wait a bit longer and, eventually the unabridged version of books will come up but with the Thorne series its different. The books are wonderfully brought to life by Robert Glenister who, in my oppinion is one of the best readers of crime fiction there is and is tailor made for Bilingham. If only they would produce unabridged versions of the DI Thorne novels read by Glenister I'd be a happy man but for now, I'll make do with these brilliant abridged versions.
