Nit-picking I admit, but shouldn't the home page be changed, to remove the 'vote for' link and put up a photo of the award presentation instead?

Ah, Richard, don't get me started on the pile of books at the top of the forum that wasn't updated to include Death Message when the picture was changed everywhere else on the website...

Just finished Death Message.

There are strong similarities to Ian Rankin's Inspector Rebus series but that is ok, Mark Billingham's character of Tom Thorne is different enough from Rebus to be his own person.

This book deals with what happens when a man who is just about to leave prison and return to his wife and child find that they have been murdered. He then goes on a killing spree but to add a twist to the tale, he takes a photo or video of the victims.

Thorne goes out on a limb in this book and it is well worth reading.

Is it as good as Ian Rankin? Probably not, but still better than most.
