He parked on Golden Square and walked towards Soho e Brewer Street bars were showing a little more flesh than of late. Considering the other risks they ran every day, a few goose pimples were neither here nor there. Gary Brand called back as Thorne was walking, said he’d managed to dig up a few names from Alan Langford’s past who had probably been in Spain at one time or another.

In the ninth Tom Thorne novel, a man long thought killed by his long-suffering wife, turns up alive. And other people begin to turn up dead. A decade ago, Alan Langford’s charred remains were discovered in his burnt-out car. His wife Donna was found guilty of conspiracy to murder her husband and sentenced to ten years in prison. But before she is released, Donna receives a nasty shock: an anonymous letter containing a photo of her husband. The man she hates with every fibre of her being-the man she paid to have murdered-seems very much alive and well

She is reluctantly working for a private detective as a honey trap to manoeuvre men into compromising situations in divorce cases but has been asked by Donna to discover the truth behind the photo.

Mark Billingham’s books featuring Detective Thorne always give me a juicy read, so I settled down with much eagerness last weekend to read about the cop’s latest exploits. He’s got a murder to unravel, except it was unravelled years ago and isn’t a murder after all. Well, not the guy who was supposed to be killed anyway. Yeah, some poor man copped it, and Thorne is ready to find out who he is-and where the original I took a break from erotica to read a thriller snatched from Miz Nat’s bookshelf

This is not Billingham's best. It seemed forced somehow. Tedious in places, the plot seemed forced.

We start out with the release of a suspect who, without a body, got off on a murder charge. We progress to a man whose former wife went to prison for ten years, but when she gets out, she starts receiving photos of his being alive and well. A young PI gets involved and takes the case to Thorne. He doesn't want her involved, but his boss wants her involved to cut down on the potential of her going to the tabloids with the story of the former wife who went to prison for the death of her ex-husband who is still alive.

It seemed that Billingham didn't know where to go next with this story. Sad, but true. Perhaps with the next book he'll get back on track.

From the Dead just recently became availabe to US readers, and if you've already read Good as Dead (aka The Demands) and The Dying Hours, it feels incredibly strange to be going back in time in Thorne's life. His professional and personal circumstances change drastically between From the Dead and The Dying Hours, and the time-travel is rather disconcerting. More problematic is that although From the Dead starts off with an exciting premise (an apparent murder victim may be very much alive, as evidenced by recent photographs of him lounging beachside that have been sent to his wife...the wife accused and convicted of killing him), it fails to do much with it. A lively investigative companion for Thorne is introduced, a private detective named Anna Carpenter. She and Thorne develop a relationship that feels charmingly authentic: part father-daughter and brother-sister, with some serious hints of sexual tension thrown in as well. Thorme is certainly personally shaky about his feelings for his girlfriend Louise and they seem to be going in different directions as a couple, so his complex reaction to Anna rings true. But as Thorne and Anna try to delve into the truth of what happened to Alan Langford and the daughter left behind by his seeming murder and her mother's incarceration, the book goes off the rails somewhat. Familiar team members Dave Holland and Yvonne Kitson are shoved in the background, handling legwork for Thorne, while other cops both in and out of the UK loom larger in the narrative. The head of steam the book builds up in its early chapters dissipates after a tragic incident, and it seems to suck the life out of the book. The final chapters are frustratingly and disappointingly anti-climatic, and seem somewhat rushed. It almost feels like Billingham lost interest in his story and was just determined to wrap things up. Any time spent with Tom Thorne is not time wasted, and even a mediocre effort from Billingham is better than many others on offer. But the subsequent books are much stronger, and sadly, I wouldn't have missed anything if it had remained unavailable here.

From the Dead is a book well worth reading. The book opens with Tom Thorne suffering a major disappointment as one of his accused murderers is found innocent of murdering a young girl. Thorne next looks into the case of another missing girl. He meet a Donna after her release from prison for hiring a hit man who killed her husband. She has anonymously received several photos of her young daughter and her husband (alive and well) and wants Thorne to find them. Thorne is forced to work with a young private investigator during his investigation, for whom he quickly develops feelings. This taut procedural thriller heightens suspense with every chapter and has some shocking plot developments. You truly have no idea how it will end until practically the last page. Anyone who loves a good thriller will love this book; Tom Thorne fans will adore it.

Mark Billingham keeps DI Tom Thorne evolving. The story lines are always credible. The characters are fleshed out. Through DI Thorne, the reader is exposed to a side of London that is both gritty and human. "From the Dead" is a great read. It will leave you wanting to get your hands on the next sequel.

This is another good read in the Tom Thorne series of novels. It starts in a small local store and goes on to cover big parts of the London area.

A number of the chapters take place in the store and you get a real feeling of claustraphobia as the policewoman and another shopper are imprisoned by the shopkeeper. This frantic and unstable man suspects his son has been murdered in gaol and he wants Thorne to prove it. While Thorne races from place to place to try and do so, he is fighting against time, the weather and London`s impossible traffic. The shopkeeper is in no mood to listen. He wants only results and quickly.

This is an enjoyable and exciting book.

Sometimes I wonder why Tom Thorne, played brilliantly by David Morrisey, is not on our TV screens every week. But then I remember that quality takes time and that Mark Billingham has that unique talent of drawing you into his written words, so much so, that we can read and see Tom Thorne.
Living in Spain, as I do, Billingham took me to places I know so well to a land full of extremes that surrounded the final part of the drama. If you have not read this man, shame on you! But please do, starting from his earliest books and you will be hooked. Tom Thorne is as real as Rebus and Morse and dare I say it Poirot. Read and read again.
As an author myself, I applaud the talent that is laid open on every page and I am humbled and in awe.
