Description

Helen and her partner DI Tom Thorne are on holiday when the news reports that a man has been arrested for the crimes, although no bodies have been found. If you enjoy police procedural novels with great characterisation then this series is the one for you. It's always there, hidden in a couple of sentences that don't particularly make sense, that you skate over in your rush to get on with the story. With a girl still missing, Thorne sets himself on a collision course with local police, townsfolk ­ and a merciless killer. Forty-three-year-old Stephen Bates a local man is questioned in connection with the abduction of Poppy Johnson and the disappearance of Jessica Toms.

The plot is tense, the scenarios realistic, the political environment of the workplace is familiar, the characters are finely drawn and three dimensional and feel like people you know. In Time of Death Mark Billingham has provided the reader with another well written, complex narrative that speaks to issues that we can all empathise with. There were enough clues to point me in the direction I took only to have the rug pulled out from beneath my feet towards the novels end. This series is now well established with some strong characters that regular readers will already be familiar with.As his partner faces up to a past she has tried desperately to forget and a media storm engulfs the town, Thorne becomes convinced that, despite overwhelming evidence of his guilt, the police have got the wrong man. I love the characters of Helen, Thorne and Hendricks and have become very comfortable with these characters, their banter, their humour, sarcasm and intelligence…the dialogue is exceptionally natural and believable and the characters develop and grow with each new novel.

This is a great example of the strength of the characterisation and plot that this author produces and is reads successfully as stand-alone novel.Billingham goes to great lengths to immerse the reader in this novel – the settings are so vivid you can imagine yourself walking down the main street of the small town of Polesford.
