Ytterligare en bok om Tom Thorne och som alltid välskrivet med en bra intrig även om denna bok inte höjer sig över mängden ger den ett antal timmars lättlyssnad förströelse. ( )

Death Message by Mark Billingham is the seventh book in his police procedural series featuring DI Tom Thorne. Set in London, this book deals both with new crimes and old. When Thorne starts receiving picture of dead bodies the pieces are soon put together that the murderer is the recently released from prison Marcus Brooks, seeking revenge on both those who set him up for a murder he didn’t commit and on those who ordered the death of his girlfriend and son. Tom soon discovers that he is receiving these pictures because an old nemesis had befriended Brooks in prison and helped him plan the revenge murders.

When Thorne figures out that Marcus Brooks was originally set up, he does bend the rules in order to discover who the two corrupt police officers who assisted in the set-up were. This bending of the rules appears about to backfire on Thorne, but the book offers up one final twist, when Thorne realizes that this nightmare has widespread roots in his own past.

Death Message was another exciting read in this superior detective series. The pacing is excellent, the story clever and the characters are engaging. I am looking forward to book number eight. ( )

DCI Tom Thorne receives a photograph of a dead body on his mobile phone, he has no idea who or why he has been sent the image, but of course is determined to find the answer. Being a maverick though, Thorne has to do things his way and without authority from his boss. At the same time he's having a relationship with another police officer and finds it difficult to confide in her, creating further tension. All is eventually revealed and involves previous cases in which Thorne was involved as well as police corruption. It doesn't paint a very pleasant picture of life in London. ( )

I really love the character of Tom Thorne, the tough DI who insists on doing things his own way, and often pays a hefty price. But of course he never learns. This book will reward long-time fans by bringing back a couple of villains from earlier stories. And I’m glad we finally learned what really happened to Tom’s father. I only wish the author had shown a scene between Hendricks and Thorne at the end. The close friendship enjoyed by the two is one of the central threads of the series, and I ended the book worrying that it would remain fractured. ( )

The book starts when DCI Tom Thorne receives a photograph of a dead body on his mobile phone. He doesn’t know who the body or who has sent the picture and the events that unfold as a result are a complex web of interconnected stories.

I’ve enjoyed several of the Tom Thorne series but this one was less engaging on a number of levels. For a start I found it difficult to generate much concern for the criminals and crooked cops that made up the victim list. But mainly it was Thorne himself who was particularly annoying in this outing. For virtually the entire book he repeatedly did stupid things, which he admitted were stupid before he did them, and then whined about the consequences of the stupid things he’d done. I grew tired of this adolescent behaviour long before I slogged my way to page XXX (which took me a good several weeks mind you as I continuously put the book down in preference for more appealing offerings).

In previous books other characters, such as his colleague Dave Holland and friend Phil Hendricks, have been nicely developed and able to offer different perspectives. Here the other characters were much more two-dimensional and took a back seat to the whiney Thorne.

The writing seemed clumsier this time too. There are dull passages about Thorne’s online poker playing, the intricacies of SMS re-routing and all manner of similar subjects that added little to the story. Normally such interludes would add character depth but here all they added was length. I began to wonder if Billingham was as easily distracted from his main storyline as I was. The last third of the book was actually pretty decent, though only if you are familiar with the earlier novels in the series, and it still left a lot of ho hum reading.

It's actually a 2.5 star rating on my personal scale ( )

He could tell they were coppers the second he clapped eyes on them, but it was something in how they stood, in the formal awkwardness an the way their features set themselves into an overtight expression of concern, that drilled a hole right through to his guts; that sucked the breath from him as he dropped into the chair the female officer had advised him to take.
