Product Description

Every Monday evening, six people gather in a smart North London house to talk about shame. A respected doctor, a well-heeled housewife, a young male prostitute . . . they could not be more different. All they have in common is a history of addiction. But when one of the group is murdered, it quickly becomes apparent that someone else in that circle is responsible. The investigation is hampered by the strict confidentiality that binds these individuals and their therapist together, which makes things difficult for Detective Inspector Nicola Tanner, a woman who can appreciate the desire to keep personal matters private. If she is to find the killer, she will need to use less obvious means. The question is: What could be shameful enough to cost someone their life? And how do you find the truth when secrets, lies, and denial are second nature to all of your suspects?


"In this voiced narration, Billingham is very good - his characters are unique and easy to identify." —Sound Commentary Starred Review

"Billingham, who also acts and does stand-up comedy, reads the work and provides a first-rate professional-level performance." —Library Journal Audio Review

"Billingham fans will . . . relish Die of Shame, which is narrated by the author himself, who gives a gripping and authentic voice to his story of six British folk who meet to talk about shame and their shared history of addiction, only to discover that murder takes the upper hand during the narrative." —Donovan's Literary Services
