From The Dead

17 Apr

“From the Dead” by Mark Billingham is an excellent British crime novel.

In DI Tom Thorne, Mark Billingham has created a detective as interesting and as readable as Ian Rankin’s Rebus, or Peter Robinson’s Banks.

The Tom Thorne books are mostly set in London, for those who like their reading in familiar locales.

In “From the Dead” a woman who has served ten years for conspiring to murder her husband is released from prison.  Then someone starts sending her photos of her husband… her still very much alive, husband.

From that point onwards the book becomes a roller-coaster ride of action and murder.

This book has, quite frankly, more twists than a corkscrew!

Fantastic read.  Highly recommended.
