LoveReading Says

Slicing through traditional and throwing convention up in the air, this novel received a standing ovation from me. A murder on a psychiatric ward is investigated by DC Alice Armitage, she also just happens to be one of the patients. Using the most exquisite balance of irreverence, biting humour, and compassion, Mark Billingham has created a character who will forever reside in my mind (hmm, lucky me!). I was mesmerised by the narrator Alice, incredibly complex yet beautifully simple, she blazes into life. The residents and staff of Fleet Ward are introduced in the most perfect way, making a large list of characters instantly memorable. Trust disappears out the nearest window as the plot wheedles, cajoles, screams and shouts as it buckets along. I found myself entering an unknown world, and looking around with eyes and mouth wide, wide open before realising I actually felt right at home. Mark Billingham has created an absolute monster of a read, it pulls you in close for a hug as it slaps your awareness. A LoveReading Star Book and Book of the Month, Rabbit Hole is quite simply an outstanding and wondrous ride. - Liz Robinson

Billingham is a master of pulling the proverbial rabbit out of the hat in many of this thrillers. While this book, his latest, is something of a departure for Billingham – it’s not part of a series and the entire novel takes place within a psychiatric facility, a kind of Jane Tennison meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest – it still has an ending that will leave you reeling. You know how the first time you saw The Sixth Sense, you wanted to watch it again almost immediately to see how it could have all been there in front of you, but you missed it? It’s that kind of book. - Linwood Barclay
