    An enduring top-ten bestseller, and genuinely gripping novel in the spirit of Ruth Rendell and Elizabeth George.... London-based detective Tom Thorne has his work cut out. The killer chose his target at Euston station, followed her and strangled her to death. The victim wasn't his first in North London, and Thorne realises the murders are happening simultaneously. This is not a serial killer Thorne is up against... this is two of them.

    Good story - terrible accents!

    I agree with one of the previous reviewers. While I found the book gripping and wanted to get to the end of the story, I also found the use of bad la..Show More »

    X marks the spot - and when that spot is a corpse's naked back and the X is carved in blood, DI Tom Thorne is in no doubt that the dead man is the latest victim of a particularly vicious serial killer. It's morbid and it's messy - but it's a mystery with plenty of clues. This is turf warfare between North London gangs. Crime boss Billy Ryan is moving into someone else s patch - and that someone is not best pleased....

    Terrific book

    Thoroughly recommended!
    Great writing...narration spot on & kept me constantly listening which is a great indicator of a good book!

    The first message sent to Tom Thorne's phone was just a picture - the blurred image of a man's face, but Thorne had seen enough dead bodies to know that the man was no longer alive. But who was he? Who sent the photograph? And why?

    My first Mark Billingham - really good!

    DI Tom Thorne is back.... When a dead body is found in a North London flat, 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. DI Thorne is dealing with one of the most twisted killers he has ever hunted.

    One of the best!

    I think that Thorne books are like Marmite you either love them or hate them. I love them and thoroughly enjoyed this one. Quite dark, the story left ..Show More »

    When Donna Langford receives a very recent photo of her ex-husband in the post, she gets the shock of her life. Because she's just spent 10 years in prison for organising his murder. When her daughter goes missing, Donna believes there can only be one man responsible and hires Anna Carpenter, a determined young private investigator, to find him.

    Good one

    I really enjoyed this story. It was Thorne at his best, completely into the detecting and neglecting his personal life, which I found quite sad. The..Show More »

    The Hostage. Police officer Helen Weeks walks into her local newsagent's on her way to work. Little does she know that this simple daily ritual will change her life forever. It's the last place she expects to be met with violence, but as she waits innocently at the till, she comes face to face with a gunman. The Demand. The crazed hostage-taker is desperate to know what really happened to his beloved son, who died a year before in youth custody.

    A cluster of suicides among the elderly. Such things are not unknown to the police and the deaths are quickly dismissed by the police as routine. Only one man is convinced that something more sinister is taking place.However, no one listens to Tom Thorne anymore. Having stepped out of line once too often, he's back in uniform and he hates it. Patronised and abused by his new colleagues, Thorne's suspicions about the suicides are dismissed by the Murder Squad he was once part of and he is forced to investigate alone.

    A Fantastic Listen - you will be hooked.

    I have been waiting patiently (ish) for the next installment in the life of Tom Thorne. Having listened to all the previous books I feel I know him ..Show More »

    Tom Thorne is back in charge - but there's a terrifying price to pay. Stuart Nicklin, the most dangerous psychopath he has ever put behind bars, promises to reveal the whereabouts of a body he buried 25 years before. But only if Thorne agrees to escort him. Unable to refuse, Thorne gathers a team and travels to a remote Welsh island, at the mercy of the weather and cut off from the mainland. Thorne is determined to get the job done and return home before Nicklin can outwit them.

    Slow and ponderous
