Murder: Mayhem and Murder Book II - Mayhem and Murder (Hardback)Sarah Pinborough (author)
- Not available
From the bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes: Dr Thomas Bond is back, but this time the trial of murders leads straight to his front door.
Dr Thomas Bond, Police Surgeon, is still recovering from the events of the previous year when Jack the Ripper haunted the streets of London - and a more malign enemy hid in his shadow. Bond and the others who worked on the gruesome case are still stalked by its legacies, both psychological and tangible.
But now the bodies of children are being pulled from the Thames . . . and Bond is about to become inextricably linked with an uncanny, undying enemy.
'Few writers blend mystery and the supernatural as well as Sarah Pinborough, but there are none who do it better. Quite, quite brilliant' John Connolly

Murder has all the elements I expected from Sarah Pinborough, excellent writing, mystery and a dark undertone that haunts the story throughout * From First Page to Last *
A novel which stands alongside the best of this sort of genre blending from Michael Marshall Smith or John Connolly . . . A blend of the supernatural, horror, crime and psychological profiling which makes you care about the characters before turning their lives inside out. 9/10 * Sci-Fi Bulletin *
It's extremely rare that I read an entire book in one sitting but I just couldn't put Murder down ... Sarah Pinborough has once again proven why she has earned a place on my extremely short list of favourite authors * Eloquent Page *
