Billingham, M: The Dying Hours
Tom Thorne returns in a breathtakingly gripping new case
Mark Billingham has twice won the Theakston's Old Peculier Award for Crime Novel of the Year, and has also won a Sherlock Award for the Best Detective created by a British writer. Each of the novels featuring Detective Inspector Tom Thorne has been a Sunday Times bestseller. Sleepyhead and Scaredy Cat were made into a hit TV series on Sky 1 starring David Morrissey as Thorne, and a new series based on the novels In the Dark and Time of Death will be broadcast on BBC1 in 2017. Mark lives in north London with his wife and two children.
Expertly crafted, with a nicely judged build-up of tension and a slam-dunk ending. The Dying Hours is a terrific read Guardian
