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.

At last a great book with a believable finish

I loved the plot and its wider socio-political context. It's delicate and difficult to write about crime among minority religious groups, or even majority religious groups but Mark Billingham treated his subject with respect. There was enough subtle research to make the various characters very believable. I recently asked for a refund for the dreadful disappointment by a crime writer who should know better. Mr Billingham has more than compensated. In his story, we didn't have the lead detective threatening to kill anyone, least of all the murderer. Instead we had Mark Billingham doing what he's paid to do. Creating a very satisfying end to a well narrated and beautifully written tale. And no. I haven't given Mark 5 out of 5 for every story he's written. This one's a six.
