Mark Billingham’s ability to tell the most twisted of crime stories through character-driven storytelling has made him one of the biggest names in the genre.
In Love Like Blood, the latest Tom Thorne novel, Thorne takes the biggest risk of his career when he investigates a series of ‘honour’ killings.

In this conversation with fellow author Kate Mosse, Mark digs deep into the art of making troubled detectives both believable and appealing.
