Die of Shame – reviews

“A riveting tale.”
The Times

“An intriguing set-up, involving a cast of suspects where everyone has something to hide.”
The Sunday Times

“Perfectly pitched and elegantly plotted, it has all Billingham’s hallmarks, and should not be missed.’”
The Daily Mail

“Intense, voyeuristic and loaded with popular culture, this unashamed good read is sure to prove a hit.”
The Sun

“To say much more would be to deprive the reader of the jaw-dropping twists and turns that herald the climax of this immensely entertaining, masterfully constructed novel – which ends, most un-Christie like, on an unnerving note of perfectly judged irresolution.”
The Irish Times

“Mark Billingham is a very clever writer and all the characters in this book are rounded and credible”
Literary Review

“One of Billingham’s most unconventional, intriguing and entertaining books.”
Jake Kerridge – Daily Express.

“One of the best crime novels of the year so far. Shocking, frightening, gripping.”
Sunday Irish Independent

“This is a terrific and unconventional addition to Billingham’s oeuvre, packed with colourfully drawn, wittily observed characters who never lapse into stereotypes . . . [a] satisfyingly unusual crime novel.”
Irish Independent

“Die Of Shame is a very clever and enthralling crime puzzle that will keep readers intrigued from beginning to the unexpected but perfect end.”
Devoted To Thrills

“Die of Shame is a brilliant compassionate study of dysfunction...this is a very kind, very funny, very troubling book.”
Crime Fiction Fix

“Gritty, thought provoking and utterly addictive.”
Crime Thriller Girl

“A gritty novel with heart and honesty.”
The Crime Warp

“Brilliantly written with a seriously intriguing premise. It’s not to be missed.”
