Tom Thorne Novels, Fiction, Crime & mystery, Thriller / suspense

DI Tom Thorne and DI Nicola Tanner investigate a series of brutal killings in London in the year's most shocking crime novel - and the most daring work yet from number one bestseller Mark Billingham

'Groundbreaking and gripping' Sunday Times


As DI Nicola Tanner investigates what appears to be a series of organised killings, her partner Susan is brutally murdered, leaving the detective bereft, and vengeful.


Taken off the case, Tanner enlists the help of DI Tom Thorne to pursue a pair of ruthless killers and the broker handing out the deadly contracts.


As the killers target their latest victim, Thorne takes the biggest risk of his career and is drawn into a horrifying and disturbing world in which families will do anything to protect their honour.

From number one bestseller Mark Billingham comes a masterful, intense crime novel that pits DI Tom Thorne against an evil beyond comprehension, yet shockingly real.
