Cry Baby

Despite Mark Billingham having a long-running series, he always manages to do something cool and different with each book, occasionally chucking in the odd standalone to keep it real. For the 20th anniversary of his excellent first book, Sleepyhead, Mark has mixed it up by taking us back to 1996, and giving the millions of Tom Thorne fans a glimpse into an early case that the DI – then DS – solves in his dogged manner. It’s twisty, edge-of-seat stuff, with trademark brilliantly drawn characters and grim situations. Treat yourself to a read!
