In The Dark - Mark Billingham (Paperback) 19-03-2009 Short-listed for Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2010 (UK) and CWA Gold Dagger for Fiction 2009 (UK).
A rainy night in London. Shots are fired into a car which swerves on to the pavement, ploughing into a bus stop. It seems that a chilling gang initiation has cost an innocent victim their life. But the reality is far more sinister... One life is wiped out and three more are changed forever: the young man whose finger was on the trigger; an ageing gangster planning a deadly revenge, and the pregnant woman who struggles desperately to uncover the truth. Two weeks away from giving birth, how will she deal with a world where death is an occupational hazard? In a city where violence can be random or meticulously planned, where teenage gangs clash with career criminals and where loyalty is paid for in blood, anything is possible. Secrets are uncovered as fast as bodies, and the story's final twist is as breathtakingly surprising as they come. ________________ The outstanding new Tom Thorne thriller, THEIR LITTLE SECRET, is out now!
