Love Like Blood (Tom Thorne, #14) by Mark Billingham

Into the Wild

Read Love Like Blood (Tom Thorne, #14) Online Free - Internationally bestselling author Mark Billingham’s riveting new novel Love Like Blood marks the return of series character Tom Thorne, “the next superstar detective” (Lee Child), as he pairs up with perfectionist detective inspector Nicola Tanner of Die of Shame on an investigation that ventures into politically sensitive territory.

DI Nicola Tanner needs Tom Thorne’s help. Her partner, Susan, has been brutally murdered and Tanner is convinced that it was a case of mistaken identity—that she was the real target. The murderer’s motive might have something to do with Tanner’s recent work on a string of cold-case honor killings she believes to be related. Tanner is now on compassionate leave but insists on pursuing the case off the books and knows Thorne is just the man to jump into the fire with her. He agrees but quickly finds that working in such controversial territory is dangerous in more ways than one. And when a young couple goes missing, they have a chance to investigate a case that is anything but cold.

Racing towards a twist-filled ending, Love Like Blood is another feat of masterful plotting from one of Britain’s top crime novelists.

This is the 14th book in the Tom Thorne series by author Mark Billingham. I have read and enjoyed all the previous books in this series so it was a pleasure to read this one. As always the plot was excellent, the characters continue to develop and the overall story well paced. I am so familiar wit...

There is no greater detective than Tom Thorne. Fact. He is the kind of man you would want on your side, willing to bend the rules and tackle whatever is thrown at him. Mark Billingham in Love Like Blood takes on the issue of honour killings. Honour killings are the killings of a close relative due...

Always a joy to spend some time with Tom Thorne, definitively for me one of the best fictional detectives on the scene currently, with Love Like Blood Mark Billingham tackles a sensitive and I think very important subject with a healthy dose of reality and genuine consideration. That plus giving...

It has been far too long since I have read a Tom Thorne novel and so I couldn’t wait to read Love Like Blood when I moved it to the top of my TBR. Returning to this series is like meeting old friends again. Thorne is one of my favourite fictional detectives and I love his friendship with Phil Hen...

I am a great fan of Mark Billingham novels. I have read Sleepyhead, Scaredy Cat, Lazybones, 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 mu...

This was not a favourite for me. Firstly, I don't much care for the character of DI Nicola Tanner. And the theme of the book was honor killings, and that is one subject I find very hard to read about. Tom Thorne ploughed a fairly straight furrow, as usual, and Phil Hendricks provided much needed co...

It's a great big welcome back to that Merle Haggard, country lovin' detective, Tom Thorne. In one particular chapter there is a great and memorable moment when D I Tom Thorne is driving down the road singing at the top of his voice..."The late great Merle Haggard provided the accompaniment on the...

This is the first ebook that I have read and I would like to thank NetGalley for the proof. As always I cannot fault a Mark Billingham book. His characters are old friends and the places Tom Thorne and his cohorts frequent are as known to me as if I had actually been there Prior to this book, I had...
