Publisher Description

The second book in the Tom Thorne series from bestselling author Mark Billingham, Scaredy Cat is a gripping, chilling tour-de-force; a book to keep you reading until deep into the night.

'Assured and shocking' Guardian

It was a vicious, calculated murder. The killer selected his victim at Euston station, followed her home on the tube, strangled her to death in front of her child. At the same time, killed in the same way, a second body is discovered at the back of King's Cross station. And this grisly event eerily echoes the murder of two other women, stabbed to death months before on the same day.

It is DI Tom Thorne who sees the link and comes to the horrifying conclusion. This is not a serial killer the police are up against.

This is two of them - and two killers are way more deadly than one . . .

Scardey Cat

This is the best detective story I've read in ages. A truly gripping plot with strong characters . I was totally engrossed and read the complete novel in two days. Thorne is equally as captivating as Morse, who in his day was undoubtedly the best, but who as now been replaced by Thorne for the 21st century. Billinghams knows how to get to ones gut, to bring a story to life and captures the evil perpetrated in modern times. (Although this is fiction, sadly these disturbing things do occur)
Billinghams research must be painstaking, but we, the reader, benefit from the accuracy and detail. Try Sleepyheads or The Dying Hours if you want to be entertained.
