The Dying Hours, Mark Billingham

The Dying Hours opening line: How much blood?

The Dying Hours
The Dying Hours

Suspicious suicides leads a former member of the murder squad to the conclusion that there is more to the deaths than meets the eye. Tom Thorne is back in uniform and it appears as if everything is conspiring against him when he decides to go it alone and solve the murders that are being ruled as suicides.

I got stuck in to this book quite quickly when we were overseas and as we were on holiday it did not take me long at all to read it. It is without a doubt a good page turner and I can recommend this book. I will be on the look out for more thrillers from this author.

First published in Great British in 2013 by Little, Brown.

ISBN 978-1-847-44424-0.

Paperback. 387 pages.

Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Books South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
