9780751544039: Rush of Blood

Perfect strangers. A perfect holiday. The perfect murder. Three British couples meet around the pool on their Florida holiday and become fast friends. But on Easter Sunday, the last day of their vacation, tragedy strikes: the fourteen-year-old daughter of an American vacationer goes missing, and her body is later found floating in the mangroves. When the shocked couples return home to the U.K., they remain in contact, and over the course of three increasingly fraught dinner parties they come to know one another better. But they don't always like what they find. Buried beneath these apparently normal exteriors are some unusual kinks and unpleasant vices. Then, a second girl goes missing, in Kent-not far from where any of the couples lives. Could it be that one of these six has a secret far darker than anybody can imagine? Ambitiously plotted and laced with dark humor, Rush of Blood is a first-rate suspense novel about the danger of making new friends in seemingly sunny places.

Review:

Praise for "Rush of Blood"
The twists and turns are smart and original, but more than that, Billingham is one of a handful of authors whose words flow as smoothly as his plot. "Sunday Express" (UK)
Mark Billingham takes us on a very unhappy holiday in this sizzling thriller that starts in Florida and moves back to Britain . . . Billingham is brilliant with both characters and narrative and he s at his very best in this very sad tale of love and loss. "Globe & Mail" (Canada)
Hugely effective and entertaining . . . many twists and shocks. "Times" (UK)
A real contender for the title of nation s top crime writer. "Daily Mirror" (UK)
"Rush of Blood" appears to warn against making friends on holiday and the further, equally grave, danger of failing to leave them behind when you board the plane home . . . The suspense is expertly built and the resolution of the mystery is unexpected and deeply chilling, the perfect ending to an extremely gripping book. " Daily Express" (UK)
Dialogue is perfectly pitched . . . It is a credit to Billingham s skill as a writer that his characters reveal so much to the reader when blethering around the dinner table while revealing so little to one another . . . All six friends tell small lies to the police, all have their sadnesses and their secrets. Almost any one of them seems capable of murder and any reader trying to guess the culprit s identity will be doing so to the very end. "Scotsman" (UK)
Billingham s characters are cleverly drawn and totally believable . . . "Rush of Blood" is a book not to be missed. "Reviewing the Evidence"
This high-tension, fast-paced, character-driven story is masterfully plotted and flawlessly told. "Crime Thriller Girl" (UK)
Another well-crafted, suspenseful thriller from Billingham, with a chilling reveal. "Killing Time Crime" (UK)

Praise for Rush of Blood
"[A] savage satire about good friends whose special bond originated in murder . . . It's maddening, the way Billingham keeps us in suspense, cringing from each character while keeping watch as if our own lives depended on it--but we wouldn't want it any other way."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
"An absorbing psychological thriller. The chilling plot realistically intensifies as true personalities are revealed . . . Billingham's affinity for delving deep into psyches shines in the enthralling Rush of Blood, as he proves that sometimes the most domestic of situations can be the most chilling."--Oline H. Cogdill, Associated Press
"Hugely effective and entertaining . . . many twists and shocks."--Times (UK)
"The twists and turns are smart and original, but more than that, Billingham is one of a handful of authors whose words flow as smoothly as his plot."--Sunday Express (UK)
