Description

I really love the way in which his relationship with Helen and her son Alfie, and the scenes where he begins to think about the future will truly melt your hardened heart. Now I don't know anybody who wouldn't have been moved an indeed horrified by the true story of Banaz Mahmod and the way in which she suffered at the hands of family for the simple act of falling in love with the wrong man. If I was them, I would have let myself get arrested, any half decent lawyer could have gotten the charges dropped. 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.

Turning to her good friend Tom Thorne she persuades him to help her uncover the truth behind the killings within the Muslim community, contracted out to hired assassins. But where Thorne and Tanner strive for justice, Muldoon outright relishes rape and murder and Raz is as cold-blooded as they come.With viewpoints shifting as the story goes along, we join Muldoon and Riaz as they abduct a pair of young Muslims who were planning on running away together. DI Nicola Tanner has been investigating a series of what appear to be honour killings when her partner Susan is murdered. The late great Merle Haggard provided the accompaniment on the drive to a retail park in Wembley and Thorne sang along to Silver Wings with rather more gusto than he managed in the school hall the day before. Her partner, Susan, has been brutally murdered and Tanner is convinced that it was a case of mistaken identity and that she was the real target.

But we knew there would be something special about Love Like Blood, Mark Billingham’s 14th DI Tom Thorne novel, when we received an extraordinary letter with our early copy of the book. It is not fully straight forward, not written in stone that he will help, but there is one thing which puts him more in mind to help. Now I don’t know anybody who wouldn’t have been moved and indeed horrified by the true story of Banaz Mahmod and the way in which she suffered at the hands of family for the simple act of falling in love with the wrong man. The murderer’s motive might have something to do with Tanner’s recent work on a string of cold-case honour killings she believes to be related.What puts this novel above Billingham’s other outstanding books is his expert braiding together of a very suspenseful plot with the timely subject of honor killings. I. Tom Thorne has twice won him the Crime Novel Of The Year Award as well as the Sherlock Award for Best British Detective and been nominated for seven CWA Daggers. I can pretty much guarantee that any book by Mark Billingham featuring Tom Thorne will be a 5 star before I even read it, and Love Like Blood is no exception. It’s a great crime novel with fascinating characters, wry (and welcome) humor, and a plot filled with unexpected twists.
