Publisher's Summary

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? While the technical experts attempt to trace the sender, Thorne searches the bulletins for a reported death that matches the photograph. Then another picture arrives. Another dead man... It is the identities of the murdered men that give Thorne his first clue, a link to a dangerous killer he'd put away years before. Now Tom Thorne must face one of the toughest challenges of his career, knowing that there is no killer more dangerous than one who has nothing left to lose.

My first Mark Billingham - really good!

Downloaded this book after watching the Thorne episodes on Sky, and didn't regret it. Am now going to work through the Thorne back catalogue. Great mix of thriller, police detection, and character development, making one want to learn more about the key players, but at the same time wanting to get the plot moving. Extremely well read with great characterisations from Paul Thornley (has to be my favouraite narrator). My only regret is not having spent more time studying the copyright dates so that I listened to the books in chronological order. Highly recommended
