9781622312818: The Dying Hours (Thomas Thorne)

Newly demoted after stepping out of line once too often, and struggling to adjust, Detective Inspector Tom Thorne becomes convinced that a spate of suicides among the elderly in London is something more sinister. His concerns are dismissed by the murder squad he was once part of and he is forced to investigate alone. Now, unable to trust anybody, Thorne risks losing those closest to him as well as endangering those being targeted by a killer unlike any he has hunted before: a man with nothing to lose and a growing list of victims, a man who appears to have the power to make people take their own lives.

About the Author:

Mark Billingham has twice won the Theakstons Old Peculier Award for Best Crime Novel and also won the Sherlock Award for "Best Detective Created by a British Author." His books, which include the critically acclaimed Tom Thorne series, have been translated into twenty-five languages and have sold over four million copies.

Review:

“Absorbing. . . . Billingham takes a chance by shaking up Thorne’s career, but it pays off in this consistently tense thriller that’s as much about Thorne as it is about solving the crimes.”
      ―Publishers Weekly

(Library Journal)

“[D]elivers this well-written police procedural with verve and storytelling skill. . . . Although the eleventh in the series, this entry is a good place for listeners to become acquainted with this crime writer as author and narrator.”
      —AudioFile [Earphones Award winner]

(California Bookwatch)

“Billingham’s narration is brisk and excellently paced. This gripping novel is a suspenseful detective story with rich, fully developed characters. It will appeal to all crime fiction fans.”
      —Library Journal



“Narrated by the author, who adds spice and zip to his Tom Thorne detective story. . . . A fine story of crime and mystery evolves, perfect for the audio format.”
      —California Bookwatch
