I'd forgotten how solid Mark Billingham's crime fiction was. The first couple Tom Thorne crime novels were beauties, but with In The Dark, Billingham has put together a fine standalone yarn as well.
In fact, I'm only a third through it, but he has a way of getting inflection and surroundings so right with all of his characters; so everthing can't help but ring true.
Billingham has it all over Ian Rankin, folks.
A brief review here. via
