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.

I have listened to all Mark Billingham's books on audio, and this is another good story. Will buy the next one, keep them coming!
