This is Billingham’s first stand alone thriller and it has been hailed as a powerful ‘state of the capital’ novel. Set in London, it shows a city where violence can be random or meticulously planned, where teenage gangs clash with career criminals and where loyalty is paid for in blood. Secrets are uncovered as fast as bodies, and the story's final twist is as breathtakingly surprising as they come.
We met Mark recently for the August edition of the podcast and we found out that he actually started out in life as a comedian. He was drawn to writing thrillers after he found himself the victim of a terrifying crime whilst touring in Manchester. Interestingly, he said that comedy and crime use the same techniques since both are all about timing! You can here the interview from on the Audible.co.uk Podcast from 1st August.
