A BLOODY MESSAGE

As DI Nicola Tanner investigates what appears to be a series of organised killings, her partner Susan is brutally murdered, leaving the detective bereft, and vengeful.

A POWERFUL ALLY

Taken off the case, Tanner enlists the help of DI Tom Thorne to pursue a pair of ruthless killers and the broker handing out the deadly contracts.

A CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE

As the killers target their latest victim, Thorne takes the biggest risk of his career and is drawn into a horrifying and disturbing world in which families will do anything to protect their honour.

From number one bestseller Mark Billingham comes a masterful, intense crime novel that pits DI Tom Thorne against an evil beyond comprehension, yet shockingly real.

MY REVIEW

I am a great fan of Mark Billingham novels. I have read Sleepyhead Scaredy Cat Laybones, Time of Death. Love Like Blood is painful, frightening and quite disturbing in equal measure.
Somewhere in the police files there was a reference to two men. It is believed that two hit men were paid to murder. Their methods of killing were always different and the locations. They were contracted out to honour killings all over the world.
Two men were waiting for DI Nicola Tanner to come home. They had water pistols the two hit men sprayed jets of bleach and blinded their lady. The bleach burned her eyes and mouth the bleach ran down her throat. The woman froze when one of the men produced a knife.
The hit men thought they had killed DI Nicola Tanner, but they had killed her partner Susan Best in their home.
Obviously DI Tanner is not allowed to be part of the investigation in any way. But DI Nicola Tanner needs to catch the people who killed her girlfriend. DI Nicola can’t imagine life without Susan the woman she loved. Still loved.
Love Like Blood I Very highly recommend the hardback. All readers can rely on Mark Billingham, he is one author who cares passionately about his characters.

  1. Glad you enjoyed it! I’m on this blog tour too 🙂 My info is wrong though on the poster (I’m the last one on there) – they put my email address and a Twitter that isn’t mine, haha!

    • Oh my goodness me, that’s really bad. Did you let them know early as they could have changed it?

      • Unfortunately I let them know a bit too late – I didn’t see the email in time, so they couldn’t change it!
