Publisher's Summary

In a vicious, calculated murder, a victim is selected at Euston Station, followed home, and strangled in front of her child. When a second body is discovered, killed in the same way at King's Cross station, DI Tom Thorne comes to a horrifying conclusion: this is not one killer, but two.

    "Another superb offering"

    Mark Billingham does it again with this, the second in the Tom Thorne series. The plot was engaging and drew me in just like his first novel, Sleephead. I enjoyed the introduction of the characters and the start of the book certainly had an impact. The plot twisted and turned without being obvious in doing so, a feat many other authours should aspire to.
    The narration was smooth and crisp, perfect in pitch, tone and delivery pace. Robert Glenister delivers a good array of clear characters and makes it east to differentiate between them.
    I am downloading the next novel and can hardly wait to see what befalls Thorne and Holland next.

    "Billingham's 'Thorne' Scarey Cat -Book 2"

    I like to listen to my audible books on the plane to pass flight time, but I started to listen to this purchase ahead of my holiday, and glad I did, as so far I sadly don't find it has gripping as 'Sleepy Head-Book 1' in the 'Insp Thorne' series
    Usually, when I dont find a book 'moving along' I give up on it, but I will carry on to the end in the hope it starts to 'pick up'
    But read this book for yourself, after all everyone's view's are different.

    "Great story"

    Like the previous book in the series it was a bit disjointed in places. I don't normally buy abridged books and this is why.
    Story and performance wise this was great. Good story and believable characters.

    "confusing"

    narration was poor, story line reasonable, very confusing not enough difference in speech inflection to say who was whom. Not his best work.

    "Cat Scratch Fever"

    Having enjoyed 'Sleepy Head' (the first title in Mark Billingham's Tom Thorne series) I got 'Scaredy Cat' straight away. Whereas the first novel becomes compelling after a while this book had me completely hooked from the start. Scaredy Cat delves far more into the psyche of the killer and Billingham ekes out the story for each major character until they collide in the horrifying ending. I'm off to get the third in the series now!
