About this deal

I’d like to point out that when I read the Authors Note after finishing the book I had actual tears in my eyes, it made me look back on what I had just read with slightly different eyes. The more that they look into the reasons for Susan's murder, the clearer it becomes that it could well be linked to a series of open cases, potential honour killings, that Tanner had been working on. Her partner, Susan, has been brutally murdered and Tanner is convinced that it was a case of mistaken identity and that she was the real target.

Reading this book it is a pleasure to catch up on the old familiar faces especially the heavily tattooed Phil Hendricks, police pathologist, who is arguably Thorne's only real friend and together they enjoy good beer and watching football. When two young Asian friends go missing after a night out, it becomes clear that this is no straight forward case of families taking revenge. In Tom Thorne's 14th instalment we welcome back DI Nicola Tanner who first appeared in the standalone Die Of Shame.

If you can kill your own flesh and blood because something they've done means you don't think you can hold your head up in a temple or in some poxy neighbourhood cafe. Honour killings have also been documented in Jewish and Christian communities,' Tanners says in the book. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Turning to her good friend Tom Thorne she persuades him to help her uncover the truth behind the killings within the Muslim community, contracted out to hired assassins. A few weeks back I had a good few hours to kill driving to Stirling and back to attend Bloody Scotland so I figured what the hell, bought the audio book (I’m slowly collecting the entire Tom Thorne back catalogue that way any how) and set it to play. The murderer's motive might have something to do with Tanner's recent work on a string of cold-case honor killings she believes to be related.Tanner believes there is something fake about the reaction from their families and she convinces Thorne to pulls some strings to get the case assigned to him.
