Smart, decisive, and funny as heck, DS Declan Miller fronts a crime series set in Blackpool that enjoys off the wall storytelling. This is the second in the Detective Miller series, and it’s another absolute corker. We first met this offbeat detective in The Last Dance, and celebrated the start to the series by adding it to the LoveReading Star Books category. Fabulously original, The Wrong Hands now joins its older sister as a star book. DS Miller is still desperate to solve the murder of his wife, and a stolen briefcase containing proof of a contract killing kick-starts this novel. Award-winning author Mark Billingham wields the most wonderfully light yet devastating pen. Humour spears murder and mayhem and the storytelling is such that it captures imaginations as the plot smirks and swaggers its way from beginning to end. Yet as always, darkness is acknowledged with compassion and thoughtfulness. The humour is used to underscore and highlight rather than bulldoze its way through the novel. I loved the partnership between Miller and DS Sara Xiu which continued to develop, while the members of the dance group, competitive criminals and their angry wives, and list-making hitman certainly kept things interesting. Gift-wrapped in Mark Billingham’s fabulous style, The Wrong Hands plays a blinder and comes as highly recommended by our team.
