The Dying Hours – reviews

‘Expertly crafted, with a nicely judged build-up of tension and a slam-dunk ending, The Dying Hours is a terrific read’
The Guardian

‘An ingenious police procedural’
The Independent

‘The joy here comes from watching Thorne work under the radar while on the hunt for a killer who proves to be extremely clever and really, really mean’
New York Times Book Review

‘A growing number of suicides start looking like murder in Billingham’s absorbing novel. Billingham takes a chance by shaking up Thorne's career, but it pays off in this consistently tense thriller’
Publishers Weekly

‘The Dying Hours, and it comes to a breathtaking and surprising climax, with the last sharp twist saved for the final pages’
The Tampa Bay Times

‘Convincing characters in a layered plot with well-paced suspense from a multiple-award-winning author with more than a dozen novels under his belt. Who could ask for more?’
Reviewing The Evidence
