9780060745264: The Burning Girl

Jessica Clarke was set alight twenty years ago. Her attacker is still in jail, so who is harassing Carol Chamberlain - the arresting officer - and claiming that he is the one who burned Jessica? Carol turns to DI Tom Thorne for help, but when an X is carved on his front door, Thorne knows that the embers of a long dead case are about to erupt into flames. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60% of the author's work and as low as 30% with characters and plotlines removed.

Review:

With The Burning Girl, Mark Billingham steps away from the inventively vicious serial killers of his earlier thrillers to have his police detective Thorne investigate something equally unpleasant--the men who kill for money not kicks and the gangsters who ruthlessly employ them. Thorne's retired friend Carol put Rooker away years ago for setting fire to a girl--whom he mistakenly believed to be the daughter of gang-boss Kelly; the girl did not die, then, but wished she had. Now someone is ringing Carol, saying it was them that burned the girl, and Rooker is promising to tell the truth; Ryan, Alison Kelly's ex-husband and her father's chosen successor, is caught up in gang warfare with a new North London Turkish mafia. As always, Billingham delivers psychological insights you half wish you didn't have, along with a profound sense of just how far the damaged Thorne will go in the name of justice. Anyone who knows North London will recognise this as being as atmospheric as it is moody--Billingham continues to develop from book to book. -- Roz Kaveney

Review:

Scary, pell-mell, cliff-hanging thriller. --Literary Review
