When I first started this book, I found it a little difficult to keep focused. The story starts off very slowly without much excitement. However once the middle of the book is reached, it really picks up. The book becomes difficult to put down, and hard to predict. The ending of the book was excellent!

Anyone who likes books set in England with a fair bit of the English slang will enjoy Billingham's books. And the endings are always a surprise. I really enjoy reading his books.

HASH(0xa862927c) out of 5 stars A THORNE AMIDST THE ROSES June 30 2004
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mark Billingham continues his panache for gritty, involving and highly readable crime fiction with this latest installment in his Tom Thorne series.
Thorne is involved this time in what appears to be some kind of vigilante killing. The posed naked dead body of a released rapist is found in a seedy hotel room. The victim had just been released from prison and is found posed rather prayerfully, his neck garroted, masked, etc. Thorne also finds out that someone called the local florist to arrange for a wreath to be sent to the hotel room. Through this accidental phone call, Thorne becomes involved with Eve Bloom, the lovely florist who took the call.
Another body turns up, again a rapist recently released from prison, killed in the same method, different hotel.
Thorne and his reliable partner, Dave Holland, dig deep into the case to try and find out who is responsible for these killings. Tackling the moral issue of whether this killer should be arrested or applauded, Billingham takes us on a nerve-wracking, surprising tale that climaxes in high fashion.
Billingham gives us a little more insight into Thorne's private life, including the bittersweet relationship between Thorne and his Alzheimer-ridden father. Dave Holland is also going through an emotional crisis with the approaching birth of his first child.
Billingham knows how to write..he keeps the reader totally engrossed in his tales, and gives us red herrings and hidden clues.
This series is one of the best out there...enjoy!!!

HASH(0xa8629b7c) out of 5 stars British Thriller Actually Understandable to US Reader July 18 2005
By Ronald T. McCoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It's not that all British writers write well; it's just that so many of them do. The how's and why's of that are up for discussion. I've often found that UK thriller/procedural writers in particular leave waaaaaaaay too many blank spots, e.g. the actual lives of the characters they parade across the pages. Mark Billingham does not do this. He's created a believable and interesting character in Mr. Thorne. Yes, there are gaps. But that's for the reader to fill in. Reading needn't always be an entirely passive activity. This book is a solid, interesting read. Plenty of "ah ha" moments, pathways (both productive and of the dead-end variety) to explore. Basically, Billingham is a subtle writer---but not so much as to be beyond the reader's understanding. Excellent detective fiction with plenty of interesting character sketches.

HASH(0xa8629708) out of 5 stars Engrossing page-turner June 16 2004
By SDRTX - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This third installment featuring Detective Inspector Tom Thorne has him on the trail of a vigilante killer who preys on convicted rapists. It's hard for Tom to feel too motivated in finding the killer due to a lack of sympathy of the "victims". Bodies start piling up and a cold case is tied into the investigation. Thorne finally finds an emotional connection to the case. His ensuing passion for cracking the case leads to many twists and turns.
This was a fast-paced thriller that got more suspenseful with each page. Toward the end of the book, I couldn't read fast enough to get to the climax. Tom Thorne was a very engaging and likable character. There was hardly any time spent on any of the details of the secondary characters brought up in past books that made it a little hard to follow. A little refresher on who everyone was would not have been remiss. Despite this slight failing this was an excellent read.

HASH(0xa863c0f0) out of 5 stars my 2nd book Oct. 23 2012

My 2nd Mark Billingham novel
The main character, Detective Inspector Tom Thorne, is investigating a series of murders involving men listed on the sex offender's list. The men have been raped and strangled with clothesline. Thorne is attracted to a florist, Eve Bloom, but for some reason, is in no hurry to consummate the relationship. Hence the title, LAZYBONES. A burglar has broken into Thorne's flat and defecated on his mattress and Thorne keeps putting off purchasing a new one. Although he does finally purchase a new car because the burglars also stole and torched his old one.
Thorne and his loyal partner, Dave Holland, dig deep into the case to try and find out who is responsible for these killings. Tackling the moral issue of whether this killer should be arrested or applauded, Billingham takes us on a nerve-wracking, surprising tale that climaxes in high fashion.
Billingham gives us a little more insight into Thorne's private life, including the bittersweet relationship between Thorne and his Alzheimer-ridden father. Dave Holland is also going through an emotional crisis with the approaching birth of his first child.
It is a very intense ending

HASH(0xa863c0d8) out of 5 stars Lazybones - Dt. Thorne March 27 2006
By Renee L. Cox - Published on Amazon.com
I am new to Billingham's work this year. I enjoyed Detective Thorne in the first one so much that I had to get them all! In fact, I just ordered the newest one directly through a seller on Amazon-UK as it is not available in the states. :} His work is creative, suspenseful, and at the same time gives a glimpse of everyday life in England. I am very pleased with the quality of the book; the quality of service I was given and the level of commitment and follow-up Amazon and the seller's it hosts provides an avenue to meet new people, read new material and pay an honest price for the value. Thank you.
