Summary of this Book...
I love coming back to a Tom Thorne novel. This character is so memorable, so flawed but likeable. I find myself caring as much about him and his own life that I do about the victims of crime.

In this story, it is six months since Thorne’s time undercover, sleeping on the streets of London. It is six months since his father died. So he’s still hurting, both physically and emotionally. Then, he is thrown together with DI Louise Porter and the kidnap squad, and they race against time to find a kidnapped fourteen year old, Luke Mullen, who just happens to be the son of a retired DCI.

There are plenty of twists and aa couple of sub-plots. These keep us on our toes. There are a couple of twists I kind of thought might happen,but the big one was a huge surprise. But it made perfect sense.

I really enjoyed this book. I’m still a big fan of Tom Thorne. I am interested to know what happens with his relationships with Porter.
This type of Book is good for...
People who love a good crime thriller. People who love whodunnits. But, it is also written with humour, so that is appealing to me, too.
I especially liked...
Tom Thorne. He is one of my favourite detectives. He is so jaded, so tired. Yet, he still has time to fancy Louise Porter. I also really like his continuing friendship with Phil Hendricks.
When I finished reading this Book I wanted to...
Read the next Tom Thorne book. I have it, but I like to spread books out when I'm reading a series.
This Book made me feel...
Excited. Amused. Suspenseful.
The author of this Book...
Mark Billingham started out as a comedian, and it really shows through his writing. This is the sixth book in the Tom Thorne series of novels.
I recommend this Book because...
It's really good.
I don't recommend this Book because...
It is graphic and a little gory in a couple of places. There are scenes of sexual abuse, too. If you don't like that stuff, don't read this.
