Publisher's Summary

It has been a decade since Alan Langford's charred remains were discovered in his burnt-out car. His wife, Donna, was found guilty of conspiracy to murder her husband and served 10 years in prison. But just before she is released, Donna receives a nasty shock: an anonymous letter containing a photo of her husband. The man she hates with every fibre of her being - the man she paid to have murdered - seems very much alive and well. How is it possible that her husband is still alive? Where is he? Who sent the photo, and why?

DI Tom Thorne becomes involved in a case where nothing and no one are what they seem. It will take him much further from his London beat than he has ever been before - and closer to a killer who will do anything to protect his new life.

Best of the series 👍

Right from the start it grabs you. Love the dialogue, the pairing of PI with Thorne and the idiot SOCA “agent “ abroad, brilliant. Good one!

Not bad but not the best

Ok story line but nothing to write home about...

I found it a bit like an episode of The Bill from the 80’s which disappoints me, I had hoped for better.

From The Dead

This book was the weakest Thorne thriller I've read to date. The parts where Anna, the Private Investigator, accompanies DI Thorne in an official investigation is complete baloney. The rest of the characters were pretty 'meh' to be honest, as is the failure of Thorne's relationship.

It took me ages to finish. Nah.

No to narrator.

Would you listen to From the Dead again? Why?

Yes, I enjoy Mark's writing. A different narrator please.

What did you like best about this story?

The twists and turns.

Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Billingham’s performances?

This is my second because I really enjoy Mark's books, that's the first thing to say. His narration however has become irritating. I can't speak for other devices, I'm listening on an iPad, but practically every sentence has the opening syllable missing. A "she" becomes "he". Really annoying as I began to be confused who he was talking about. Audible- please do something.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I wouldn't.

Any additional comments?

I'm not sure Mark is the right person to narrate.
