The twists and turns are smart and original, but more than that, Billingham is one of a handful of authors whose words flow as smoothly as his plots
Hugely effective and entertaining with many twists and shocks.
A real contender for the title of nation’s top crime writer
Chilling and compelling. It keeps you guessing right to the last page.
Mark Billingham takes us on a very unhappy holiday in this sizzling thriller that starts in Florida and moves back to Britain. In four pages, he manages to set the scene for a horrible crime and take us back into the plot. Billingham is brilliant with both characters and narrative and he’s at his best in this very sad tale of love and loss.
