The Dying Hours – reviews

“The joy here comes from watching Thorne work under the radar while on the hunt for a killer who proves to be extremely clever and really, really mean.” 
New York Times Book Review

“A growing number of suicides start looking like murder in Billingham’s absorbing novel. Billingham takes a chance by shaking up Thorne's career, but it pays off in this consistently tense thriller.”
Publishers Weekly

“The Dying Hours, and it comes to a breathtaking and surprising climax, with the last sharp twist saved for the final pages.”
The Tampa Bay Times

“No one currently working the British scene tops Billingham for mordant intensity.”
Kirkus

“Expertly crafted, with a nicely judged build-up of tension and a slam-dunk ending, The Dying Hours is a terrific read.”
The Guardian

“The Dying Hours’ relentless pace doesn’t slow down until the last word, proving why Billingham continues to be a bestseller around the world.”
Sun Sentinel
