Publisher's Summary

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. 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. 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 best seller Mark Billingham comes a masterful, intense crime novel that pits DI Tom Thorne against an evil beyond comprehension yet shockingly real.

    "Strong research, impassioned views yet delivering twists"

    Another strong work. Some of the twists jarred the flow for me - but understandable. Thorne is on his home turf. The tension between cosy, familiar and hackneyed or formulaic is tackled well by Billingham, by submersion in a subculture of crime - this time of 'honour violence' for hire. Couple of story arcs seemed stretched, but hey! Great audio performance and so much work has gone into it. So many crime writers have to turn out so much, Billingham's standing out for his research and creation of fleshed out characters in today's London.

    "TOUCHING AND TERRIFYING"

    Best MB book in a while. Fear and condoned, unforgivable family violence. The telling, tone and overall pace made it chilling. Well done Mr Billingham.

    "Poor reading"
    Would you try another book written by Mark Billingham or narrated by the narrators?

    I had to give up as the narration was dull and unispiring. Earlier Thorne novels were much better. Some parts of what I manged to plough through were really quite turgid and seemed to take ages to get to any significant action.


    Has Love Like Blood put you off other books in this genre?

    Not the genre just the performance


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    Robert Glenister


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Why bother
