Today’s three word ‘micro’ book review features the latest in the brilliant Tom Thorne series – THE KILLING HABIT – by Mark Billingham.
Here’s what the blurb says: “We all know the signs: cruelty, lack of empathy, the killing of animals. Now pets on suburban London streets are being stalked by a shadow, and it could just be the start. DI Tom Thorne knows the psychological profile of such offenders all too well, so when he is tasked with catching this notorious killer of domestic cats, he sees the chance to stop a series of homicides before they happen. Others are less convinced, so once more, Thorne relies on DI Nicola Tanner to help him solve the case before the culprit starts hunting people. It’s a journey that brings them face to face with a killer who will tear their lives apart.”
My verdict: TENSE. GRITTY. PROCEDURAL.
This is one of my favourite crime series and this book is another cracker – an essential read for fans of crime fiction and police procedurals.
