Reviews for Their Little Secret (#16 Tom Thorne)

This is a fantastic thriller, combining a gripping plot and lead characters of remarkable depth. A series to savor . . . it's impossible to put down Their Little Secret * Booklist * An object lesson in how to take an established series into shockingly deep waters without losing the thread that keeps the franchise going * Kirkus * The twisted plot unfolds gradually, with a maximum of suspense. Billingham never strains credulity in this thoughtful page-turner * Publishers Weekly * You'll read over several days, but for which you give up sleep because you have to know what happens . . . It's a highly-recommended, brilliant book * The Book Bag * Is there a more peerless crime writer at work today than Mark Billingham? There are few writers whose work I enjoy more * Crime Time * His exploration of relationships makes this novel much more interesting than an ordinary straightforward police procedural * Literary Review * Reliably ace * Heat * Billingham scores even higher in his continuing brilliance in portraying Thorne the person -- Marcel Berlins * The Times * I guarantee you won't see the ending coming. The Thorne books just keep getting better. Billingham is a superb crime writer with a sharp eye for detail and Thorne is one of the most interesting detectives in contemporary crime fiction -- Jake Kerridge * Daily Express * Mark Billingham is one of the greatest writers in this, or any other genre * Steve Cavanagh * Hugely intelligent and authentic * Belinda Bauer, author of Snap * One of the most compelling figures in contemporary crime fiction . . . Beautifully constructed and written, it pulses with the humanity that is Billingham's - and Thorne's - trademark * Daily Mail * You think Billingham can't get better, and then along comes Their Little Secret, a twisted, and twisty psychological thriller, rich with character, insight and procedural detail. He is at the top of his game * Linwood Barclay * Mark Billingham is a damn fine storyteller whose thrilling books always satisfy. With a propulsive plot that is as gripping as it is unnerving, you will not be able to put this book down. Their Little Secret is an unforgettable ride * Karin Slaughter * Their Little Secret is a cracking read! It features one of the most twisted relationships I've ever read. I couldn't put it down! * Shari Lapena *
