BURNING GIRL: A Tom Thorne Thriller

BURNING GIRL: A Tom Thorne Thriller

MARK BILLINGHAM    Book Number: 88288    Product format: Paperback

X marks the spot, and when that spot is a corpse's naked back, and the X is carved in blood, DI Tom Thorne is in no doubt that the dead man is the latest victim of a particularly vicious killer. This is brutal turf warfare between north London gangs. Organised crime boss Billy Ryan is moving into someone else's patch, and that someone is not best pleased. And when an X is carved on DI Tom Thorne's front door, he knows the smouldering embers of this case are about to erupt into flames. A cop is playing with fire. The opening scene is quite harrowing - a girl is set on fire in her school playground and it turns out that this is being remembered by former DCI Carol Chamberlain who investigated the case of the burning girl, Jessica Clarke, years before, and put away Gordon Rooker for doing it. The twist is that she has been getting suspicious phone calls and midnight visits from a man who claims that he was the villain. 452pp in paperback with fairly large print.
