Críticas:

Praise for "Time of Death"
"DI Tom Thorne and his lover, DS Helen Weeks, return to Helen's hated hometown in Warwickshire to confront some ugly accusations and some even uglier secrets. . . . What lingers in the memory is the group portrait of the Polesford locals brutally closing ranks against a man they're certain deserves to die."--"Kirkus Reviews"
Praise for "The Bones Beneath"
"I love a good twist-up. "The Bones Beneath" is one of those. It is the twelfth Tom Thorne mystery by Mark Billingham, and those of us who have been along for the ride from the very beginning will note a bit of a departure here from previous installments. There is no question who the murderer is and who the victim is (for the most part). Instead, the focus is on the "why," or the motivation, if you will, for what propels the plot like a quiet, deadly rocket through a good portion of the book, moving readers just a bit closer to the edge of their seats with each passing page. . . . One of Billingham's best to date, and certainly one of his most suspenseful."--"Bookreporter"
"The bleak setting also evokes the proper air of mystery and menace . . . Thrillers usually stand or fall on the strength of their villains, and Nicklin can certainly make your skin crawl with his cruel mind games."--"New York Times Book Review "
"A slow-building gothic tale of manipulation and evil that's heavy on atmosphere. . . a simmering suspense, with each seemingly quiet little scene building to something creepy and terrible."--Criminal Element
"Like the manipulative Nicklin, Billingham delights in toying with his audience, and most readers' nerves will be shredded long before the sadistic import of Nicklin's deep-laid plot finally becomes clear. Thorne's twelfth is a tour de force of suspense that dares you to guess the secrets of a magician who's made his intentions perfectly clear from the very beginning."--"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
"In the twelfth series entry, Billingham makes the most of his bleak, rugged setting while creating an atmosphere of chilling menace as flashbacks reveal the full extent of Nicklin's sadism and Thorne's vulnerability."--"Booklist"
"Billingham couldn't have selected a more chilling scenario . . . Best-laid plans quickly turn sour, the stakes higher than ever when Thorne confronts the very nightmare he anticipated at the start of this misadventure, his decisions bearing the onus of life or death."--Curled Up With a Good Book
"Chilling . . . Billingham certainly knows how to make those pages turn."--"Publishers Weekly"

To be Adapted into a TV Drama Series by the BBC
A "Telegraph" Best Crime Fiction Book of the Year
One of "Entertainment Weekly" s 10 Great Summer Thrillers
One of the "Guardian" s Best Recent Crime Novels
Some ingenious forensic footwork. What is most impressive about the novel, however, is the astute observation of the beleaguered Bates family, who turn in on themselves as the inhabitants of the town turn on them. "Guardian" (UK)
Clever and inventive. "Financial Times"
The writing displays the virtues that have made Mark Billingham a bestseller: wit, careful plotting, attention to detail (some of it gruesome) and great characterizationnot just Thorne and Helen but subsidiary figures such as the e-cigarette-puffing local police chief . . . An entertaining read. This won t disappoint Billingham s legions of fans. "Telegraph" (UK)

What lingers in the memory is the group portrait of the Polesford locals brutally closing ranks against a man they're certain deserves to die. "Kirkus Reviews"
Billingham has seemed to be incapable of writing any way but wonderfully since "Sleepyhead," his first Tom Thorne novel . . . Billingham is always spot on, but "Time of Death" is pitch-perfect, evenly balanced between plot and character. You won t be able to read it without wondering why all books can t be this good.

Reseña del editor:

The astonishing thirteenth Tom Thorne novel is a story of kidnapping, the tabloid press, and a frightening case of mistaken identity.
Tom Thorne is on holiday with his girlfriend DS Helen Weeks, when two girls are abducted in Helen s home town. When a body is discovered and a man is arrested, Helen recognizes the suspect s wife as an old school-friend and returns home for the first time in twenty-five years to lend her support. 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. There is still an extremely clever and killer on the loose and a missing girl who Thorne believes might still be alive."
