'Billingham's most desperately gripping read yet'Daily Mirror
Police officer Helen Weeks walks into her local newsagents on her way to work. It's the last place she expects to be met with violence, but she is about to come face to face with a gunman.
The hostage-taker is desperate to know what happened to his beloved son, who died a year before in youth custody. By holding Helen at gunpoint, he will force a re-investigation into his son's death. And one man knows the case better than any other - DI Tom Thorne.
As the body count rises, Thorne must race against time to bring a killer to justice and save a young mother's life.
Taking place over three action-packed days, this is the fastest and most surprising Thorne thriller yet fromSunday Timesbestseller Mark Billingham.

Utterly engaging... The series' page-turning credentials remain more than intact * Independent on Sunday Books of the Year * Just as we become used to (and are perhaps wearying of) the influx of foreign crime novels, here comes Mark Billingham with a thoroughly British police thriller * Time Out * With DI Tom Thorne's 10th outing, Mark Billingham proves he's a real contender for the title of the nation's top crime writer * Daily Mirror * The best thrillers make you see familiar territory in a new light. Mark Billingham has always done that * Sunday Telegraph * Taut and tense, with an unusually sympathetic hostage-taker * The Times * A rollercoaster of a read... confirms Billingham's status as one of the finest crime writers around * Daily Express *
