Publisher's Summary

In a vicious, calculated murder, a victim is selected at Euston Station, followed home, and strangled in front of her child. When a second body is discovered, killed in the same way at King's Cross station, DI Tom Thorne comes to a horrifying conclusion: this is not one killer, but two.

Another superb offering

Mark Billingham does it again with this, the second in the Tom Thorne series. The plot was engaging and drew me in just like his first novel, Sleephead. I enjoyed the introduction of the characters and the start of the book certainly had an impact. The plot twisted and turned without being obvious in doing so, a feat many other authours should aspire to.
The narration was smooth and crisp, perfect in pitch, tone and delivery pace. Robert Glenister delivers a good array of clear characters and makes it east to differentiate between them.
I am downloading the next novel and can hardly wait to see what befalls Thorne and Holland next.

Great story

Like the previous book in the series it was a bit disjointed in places. I don't normally buy abridged books and this is why.
Story and performance wise this was great. Good story and believable characters.
