Mark Billingham

6 Reviews

Rated 0

Crime & mystery

The shocking, original and completely unpredictable new novel from multi-million selling master Mark Billingham is a standalone thriller to keep readers up at night.

'Fast-paced and twisting' PAULA HAWKINS, author of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN

'At the very least it should reach the shortlist of this year's Booker prize' THE TIMES

My name is Alice. I'm a police officer.
I'm trying to solve a murder on a psychiatric ward.
But I'm also a patient...

They were meant to be safe on Fleet Ward: psychiatric patients monitored, treated, cared for. But now one of their number is found murdered, and the accusations begin to fly.

Was it one of his fellow patients? A member of staff? Or did someone come in from the outside?

DC Alice Armitage is methodical, tireless, and she's quickly on the trail of the killer.

The only problem is, Alice is a patient too.

Praise for Rabbit Hole: The new masterpiece from the Sunday Times number one bestseller

  • One of Britain's best crime writers - The Times

  • One the biggest names in crime fiction and one the genre's most formidable talents - Peter James

  • I was totally drawn into Rabbit Hole by Alice, the novel's wildly unreliable narrator. Hilarious, menacing yet vulnerable, she's a brilliant creation, alive on the page. Billingham creates the dark, claustrophobic world of the psychiatric ward with both immense skill and heart - Eve Chase, author of The Glass House

  • Rabbit Hole is authentic, raucous and deeply compassionate. Expertly balancing humour, tension and pathos, it'll do for the psychiatric ward what The Thursday Murder Club has done for retirement villages. A deeply compelling read - Harriet Tyce, author of Blood Orange

  • Follow Alice - plucky, resourceful, lovable and infuriating - down the Rabbit Hole in Billingham's fast-paced and twisting thriller - Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train

  • Mark Billingham is a master of psychology, plotting and the contemporary scene - Ian Rankin
