About this deal

I am from Warwickshire, living probably about 25 miles away from where the book is set, and I was able to guess the locations quite easily.

I. Tom Thorne has twice won him the Crime Novel Of The Year Award as well as the Sherlock Award for Best British Detective and been nominated for seven CWA Daggers.There are detailed forensics which also adds to my enjoyment as I love the finer points that lead to the police getting their man! is almost satisfying, the original case of the missing girls is cleared up but there is more happening that reaches beyond the last page of this novel; I was disappointed when it came to the end, I wanted more! I love the characters of Helen, Thorne and Hendricks and have become very comfortable with these characters, their banter, their humour, sarcasm and intelligence…the dialogue is exceptionally natural and believable and the characters develop and grow with each new novel. There are no quick solutions here but a story that unfolds like the petals of a rose revealing a nasty underbelly and one shocking revelation concerning one of the players with a personal secret to unfold.

This was a pleasure to read and review, I am a big fan of this series and Mark Billinghams writing and I was always going to read this as soon as it came out so to get an advanced copy was a bonus.

It’s always good news to discover a new author and I will be following this series for sure as it continues. Time of Death is the first Mark Billingham novel I’ve read but it’s a story that works well on its own. p>Sign up to the Little, Brown newsletter for news of upcoming publications, competitions and updates from our authors. Despite having no official roll to play, Thorne investigates on his own and becomes convinced that, despite overwhelming evidence of his guilt, the police have got the wrong man.
