LOVE LIKE BLOOD: A Tom Thorne Novel

LOVE LIKE BLOOD: A Tom Thorne Novel

MARK BILLINGHAM    Book Number: 84976    Product format: Hardback

The fiendishly clever novelist creates stories and characters we don't want to leave and this one pairs Tom Thorne up with perfectionist Detective Inspector Nicola Tanner. Her partner Susan has been brutally murdered and Tanner is convinced that it was a case of mistaken identity and that she was the real target. The murderer's motive might have something to do with Tanner's recent work on a string of cold-case honour killings she believes to be related. She is now on compassionate leave, but insists on pursuing the case off the books and knows Thorne is just the man to jump into the fire with her. He agrees but quickly finds that working in such controversial territory is dangerous in more ways than one. When a teenage couple disappear off the underground, Thorne and Tanner have a chance to investigate a case that is anything but cold. Loaded with killer twists and a pair of unforgettably twisted killers, the novel is another feat of masterful plotting. Chapter 53 begins: 'In the dream there was blood in Susan's hair, streaked through the curls like a cheap dye job, and she had no eyes.' 422pp.

As the storyline unfolds, the conflict faced by some families, related to marriage partners for their children, is explored and analysed. The criminal associations which emerge set the scene for a challenging detection process. Tom Thorne is as ebullient as ever.
