Death Message – reviews

'In a brilliantly constructed crime novel, Billingham explores ‘the terrible power of grief’ as well as the dark side of what police refer to as ‘The Job’ through his main man Tom Thorne, one of the most complex and plausible detectives on the fictional beat.'
Daily Mail

'Possibly his best novel yet.'
The Independent On Sunday

'Well-plotted, high quality stuff.'
The Guardian

'Taut, tense and disturbing.'
The Times

'Dark humour and even darker crime. Death Message is by far the best book yet in a series going from strength to strength.'
Sydney Morning Herald

'Thorne is back bigger and better than ever!'
Toronto Globe and Mail
