THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER

DI Tom Thorne returns in a chilling mystery that will keep readers guessing until the final page.

The Missing

Two schoolgirls are abducted in the small, dying Warwickshire town of Polesford, driving a knife into the heart of the community where police officer Helen Weeks grew up and from which she long ago escaped. But this is a place full of secrets, where dangerous truths lie buried.

The Accused

When it's splashed all over the press that family man Stephen Bates has been arrested, Helen and her partner Tom Thorne head to the flooded town to support Bates' wife - an old school friend of Helen's - who is living under siege with two teenage children and convinced of her husband's innocence.

The Dead

As residents and media bay for Bates' blood, a decomposing body is found. The police believe they have their murderer in custody, but one man believes otherwise. With a girl still missing, Thorne sets himself on a collision course with local police, townsfolk - and a merciless killer.

Time of Death

This latest Tom Thorne novel has few surprises. The maverick policeman gets up to his usual shenanigans and there are a few unresolved issues to ensure we pick up the next book in the series! Predictable but eminently readable!

Disappointed

I have read every Tom Thorne book and was very disappointed with this the latest.The character himself is rarely in it and the story was well padded out.I hope Mark is not going the way of a lot of authors and just writing another book on the very good previous ones.
