MEDIA REVIEWS
A rollercoaster of a read... confirms Billingham's status as one of the finest crime writers around * Daily Express *
Taut and tense, with an unusually sympathetic hostage-taker * The Times *
The best thrillers make you see familiar territory in a new light. Mark Billingham has always done that * Sunday Telegraph *
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 *
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 *
Utterly engaging... The series' page-turning credentials remain more than intact * Independent on Sunday Books of the Year *

Billingham ticks all the boxes in this outing for Thorne and Co. I liked that he married-up events from his stand-alone novel (In the Dark) and incorporated them into this excellent stand-off/hostage story.

“Good”

One of my best reads. To me, this book has lightened up the Tom Thorne Series. But it did lack that fast-paced touch. However, I rate it 5 because of it's storyline and easy & very detailed read.
