Mark Billingham’s extraordinary Cry Baby takes us right back to the start of his Tom Thorne series, to the summer of 1996 and a world in which mobile phones are still strange, in which Thorne is emerging from a painful divorce and in which he is about to meet his longterm ally Phil Hendricks.
Cleverly marking twenty years of Tom Thorne (how did that happen?), this gripping prequel to Sleepyhead returns us to the very start of it all and demonstrates why Billingham has led the way in contemporary fiction for so long.
