Picked this up as I LOVE Mark Billngham's books & any chance I get to spread the word I will! I originally read this back in November 2009, heres what I thought:

The final twist is brilliantly clever & shocking says the front cover....the biggest shock to me was that it wasn't a DI Tom Thorne tale as I was expecting!

Thorne or no Thorne, this is a gripping tale that will have you hooked. Helen Weeks is an intelligent & likeable character (I'd like to see her featured again in future books) who is trying to discover the truth behind a tragic accident, which appears to have been an act of teenage gang violence. For me, the gang is made far more chilling by the fact they are so young....a well written & accomplished tale.

The only (slight) critcism I'd have is the ending wasn't perhaps the surprise it should have been as the front cover leads you to expect the unexpected!

Another great Mark Billingham book, though not a Tom Thorne novel. Good characters but not such a surprising twist as expected. Very enjoyable.
