Strong research, impassioned views yet delivering twists
Another strong work. Some of the twists jarred the flow for me - but understandable. Thorne is on his home turf. The tension between cosy, familiar and hackneyed or formulaic is tackled well by Billingham, by submersion in a subculture of crime - this time of 'honour violence' for hire. Couple of story arcs seemed stretched, but hey! Great audio performance and so much work has gone into it. So many crime writers have to turn out so much, Billingham's standing out for his research and creation of fleshed out characters in today's London.
