About this deal

With a girl still missing, Thorne sets himself on a collision course with local police, townsfolk ­ and a merciless killer. With a girl still missing, Thorne sets himself on a collision course with local police, townsfolk - and a merciless killer. Thorne is on unknown turf, he’s not even suppose to be involved in the case, and it’s Helen who initially seems to play a more prominent role as she comforts her old friend and tries to help the two troubled children.

Billingham combines black humour, stoic cynicism and seemingly effortless intrigue once again and the end result is that Time of Death is one of the most addictive and compelling Tom Thorne novels yet ( ABC Online ) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.Based on Time of Death, I would certainly read the first book in Billingham's series and consider whether to keep going with the series. Thorne has some baggage from past cases, but is a functional detective, well able to handle the pressures of the job, and oh joy! The first is the ridiculous amount of unnecessary bad language, which is constant all the way through. Mark Billingham gives the reader a fair shot with the clues but he doesn’t half muddy the water by manipulating the reader to look the other way whilst they are revealed.

The novel is very well-written and the mystery thoroughly satisfying – I didn’t guess what would happen and that’s always a bonus. Each of the novels featuring Detective Inspector Tom Thorne has been a Sunday Times bestseller, and Sleepyhead and Scaredy Cat were made into a hit TV series on Sky 1 starring David Morrissey as Thorne.I used to love him when I read Sleepyhead back when it was first released and the followings stories of DI Thorne but for some reason I haven't read any recently until Time of Death.
