  • Mark Billingham's writing style is to take the reader on a journey while slowly building the tension. This is a stand alone book that is not part of the series of books with the main character of 'Tom Thorne'. Love this book with the complex characters and the way each person/couples stories are intertwined as the book moves back and forth from the present to the past as the story comes to its dramatic conclusion.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Brilliant

    Another brilliant story from Mr Billingham. He takes you on so many twists and turns at the end you literally 'lose the plot'.

  • murder mystery with a twist

    There were a lot of things I could learn from this book. You don't really know anybody. Nothing is like it seems. And the most important: Don't invite holiday "friends" to your home. When the three couples met in their hotel in Florida everything was fantastic. They had a lot of fun and the promise to met up, when back in the UK, was an easy one to make. But this is just something you say, right? Nobody is taken such a promise seriously. Well, one of the six is and set's in motion a chain of events with repercussions for all of them. In the beginning I had some problems with the alternating between the events taking place in the UK and in Florida and the thoughts of the killer. It would have been easier if the chapters had a headline with the place setting. But once I got into the story it was hard to stop reading. As every single one of these six persons had their own secrets and wasn't what the let the others see, it was hard to make assumptions as to who the killer is. Towards the end I had my suspicions towards all of them and it was impossible to figure out what really had happened. I was not prepared for the conclusion though. At first there was this feeling of things being rushed in the end but then there was another twist in the story and as it turns out - the end was not really the end at all. I enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it to everyone who likes a good mystery. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thank you, NetGalley and Atlantic Monthly Press!
