Excellent crime thriller. Nicely written and the twist wasn't obvious, for once! Based around Helen Weeks - we even get a brief glimpse of Tom Thorne. I actually preferred this book to the Thorne series.

An excellent story of gang life and vicious organised crime in London ! - Well worth a read, even though it doesn't involve Billingham's best character, DI Tom Thorne
