While Helen fights to stay alive and the body-count rises,Thorne must race against time if he is to bring a killer to justice and save a young mother's life.
Good but !
Great story but as with the other reviews leave the narration to the pros Mr Billingham
Where is Robert Glennister !!!!
Same high quality yarn, but ruined (for me anyway) without the fantastic narration of Robert Glennister, who makes any book he narrates 25% better than it is. He is also a very authentic voice of Thorn.
Good as dead
Like Mark billingham books but let down on this one as it's been read by Mark billingham. What happened to paul thornily ?
