Synopsis

Lazybones by Mark Billingham

A MONSTER MURDERED It's only ten days since Douglas Remfry's release from prison, having served seven years for rape, and now he's dead: naked on a bare mattress in a grubby north London hotel room, his head hooded and his hands tied with a brown leather belt. A DEADLY JUSTICE Someone knew he was coming out. Someone wanted to mete out some punishment of his own. A CASE NO ONE WANTS SOLVED And when a second sex offender is found dead, DI Tom Thorne knows he has a vicious, calculating viliglante on his hands...

Reviews

LAZYBONES is insanely gripping, the type of book that can rob you of a whole night's sleep. The dark humour is perfectly weighted, the rhythm of the prose is perfectly quick and our hero is likeably dishevelled and careworn Big Issue An excellent thriller Dublin Evening Herald A compellingly satisfying police procedural that never loosens its grip on your throat Daily Mail LAZYBONES is meticulously researched, as interesting as it is enjoyable Daily Mirror

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
