When a dead body is found in a North London flat, it seems like a straightforward domestic murder until a bloodstained sliver of X-ray is found clutched in the dead woman`s fist – and it quickly becomes clear that this case is anything but ordinary. DI Thorne discovers that the victim`s mother had herself been murdered fifteen years before by infamous serial killer Raymond Garvey. The hunt to catch Garvey was one of the biggest in the history of the Met, and ended with seven women dead. When more bodies and more fragments of X-ray are discovered, Thorne has a macabre jigsaw to piece together until the horrifying picture finally emerges. A killer is targeting the children of Raymond Garvey`s victims. Thorne must move quickly to protect those still on the murderer`s list, but nothing and nobody are what they seem. Not when Thorne is dealing with one of the most twisted killers he has ever hunted…

(Mark Billingham) Mark Billingham was born and raised in Birmingham, England. For several years he worked as an actor, then wrote scripts for television. He also gained some notoriety as a comedian. All the more unexpected was his debut in 2001 as the author of a detective novel (Sleepyhead, "Sonya"), which immediately became a bestseller in the UK. Everyone who knew Mark before were, to put it mildly, surprised by the content of the book and the writing style - gloomy, even harsh. In numerous interviews that Billingham gave after the success of the novel around the world, most often he was asked: "How did it happen that a famous comedian began to write thrillers?" But the fact is that Mark began to write two novels at the same time - a "comedy detective" (or, as we say, "ironic") and a thriller, which later brought him fame. However, the first manuscript was categorically rejected by publishers, moreover, Billingham was advised not to even try himself in this genre. Yes, the fate of the writer is no less unpredictable than the fate of his heroes ... Several more novels followed, the protagonist of which is London policeman Tom Thorne, and Mark Billingham was surprised to realize that the principles of writing a detective thriller and a humorous sketch differ little from each other. The main thing is to grab the reader`s attention as quickly as possible and then not let him go until the very end of the work.
