Additional Information

A fantastic, never-before-published Tom Thorne novel by England's crime king.

It's been twenty-five years since Tom Thorne last went to work wearing the "Queen's cloth" but now, having stepped out of line once too often, he's back in uniform. He's no longer a detective, and he hates it.

Still struggling to adjust, Thorne becomes convinced that a spate of suicides among the elderly in London are something more sinister. His concerns are dismissed by the Murder Squad he was once part of and he is forced to investigate alone.

Now, unable to trust anybody, Thorne risks losing those closest to him as well as endangering those being targeted by a killer unlike any he has hunted before. A man with nothing to lose and a growing list of victims. A man who appears to have the power to make people take their own lives.

"Dying Hours" (DH)is the 11th in Mark Billingham's Tom Thorne series. I have read all of the books and have found the series to be enjoyable, entertaining and very well written. However, I am a bit dissatisfied with DH. It has a bit of the same old, same old feeling to it, but it also has a number of pluses. Thorne is still an inspector, but busted back to a uniform, no longer part of the murder squad. All this is a consequence of how he handled events in the previous book, concerning a newsagent who held a number of hostages in his store in an attempt to understand why his son had died in prison. I couldn't recall the detail since it is about two years since that book was published, so I wound up putting DH aside briefly then skimmed the last 50 pages of the prior book. In DH, Thorne is convinced that a spate of suicides are in fact murders but he is told by higher ups to keep his nose out of it. Meanwhile Helen, the woman he saved in the earlier book, Thorne, and Helen's 18... Read more
Poor old Tom .. this was my first Tom Thorne book in a little while after reading all the others but becoming a little tired of the same old format. I enjoyed the book greatly but felt the plot was a little hard to believe ... Tom demoted to uniform but working a murder investigation on the side. That said all the same people are there and it is interesting to see Tom's new interaction with them.
A good read but I thought just lacking something that was present in the earlier Tom Thorne books
As usual, I was not disappointed with my DI (well - my uniformed ) Thorne. The ending was exceptional and of course I had to immediately get the next book which I am reading now. Mark Billingham really knows how to keep you from putting the book down - so eager to know what is coming up next. Dont know what I will do when I have read all the Thorne books, hope he just keeps on. I do so love the way Thorne progresses, ages, and has "memory" recalls of previous books. Just makes the whole book another great read.
