Product Description

DI Nicola Tanner needs Tom Thorne's help. Her partner, Susan, has been brutally murdered and Tanner is convinced that it was a case of mistaken identity—that she was the real target. The murderer's motive might have something to do with Tanner's recent work on a string of cold-case honor killings she believes to be related. Tanner is now on compassionate leave but insists on pursuing the case off the books and knows Thorne is just the man to jump into the fire with her. He agrees but quickly finds that working in such controversial territory is dangerous in more ways than one. And when a young couple goes missing, they have a chance to investigate a case that is anything but cold.

Racing towards a twist-filled ending, Love Like Blood is another feat of masterful plotting from one of Britain's top crime novelists.


“With great voices and accents (Irish, Indian, Pakistani and more) the narration is seamless.” —Sound Commentary

"Mark Billingham ably narrates the fourteenth book in his series featuring London-based police detective Tom Thorne. It can be unwise for authors to narrate their own work, but Billingham is an exception." —AudioFile

"Honor-based violence — which covers everything from beatings and kidnapping to mutilation and murder — is a scourge in Britain . . . In Love Like Blood, Mark Billingham puts human faces on one such case, telling the story of Amaya and Kamal, two Bangladeshi teenagers who run away together to avoid arranged marriages." —New York Times
