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 story is strong, keeping your interest all the way through to the end. Enjoy.
By the way, don't watch him on TV, you'll be disappointed, it's not this Thorne but an unlikeable made-for-TV version.

Mark Billingham never fails to disappoint with a Tom Thorne book. Thorne is a suitably cynical cop, and yet he stands out in what is a very crowded market, and the reason for that has to be Billingham's writing. This one is a sure-fire crowd pleaser with a suitably violent beginning, enough dark, dry humour for anybody (the FBI comment had me snorting out loud - very embarrassing since I was walking along a crowded pavement) and the end is suitably inconclusive. Thorne is coming to the small screen later this year - part of me doesn't want to share him.
