Overview

Some fires never go out ... Thorne's got plenty on his plate when he agrees to help out ex-DCI Carol Chamberlain rake through the ashes of an old case that has come back to haunt her. Schoolgirl Jessica Clarke was lit on fire twenty years ago. Now, Gordon Rooker, the man Chamberlain put away for the crime, is up for parole, and it seems there's a copycat on the prowl.

Or perhaps it's someone trying to right a serious wrong: Jessica Clarke was the victim of mistaken identity. The intended target was the daughter of a gangland boss, a woman who would grow up to marry the current leader, Billy Ryan ...

Thorne quickly identifies a tenuous link between the two crimes, and past and present fuse together to form a new, horrifying riddle. One that involves more killings, violence, greed, and a murderous family with no values -- except gain at any price.

When an X is carved into his front door, Tom Thorne realizes that fires, once thought to be out, continue to burn.

Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Tom Thorne is back -- and as angst-ridden as ever -- in the fourth installment of Mark Billingham's brilliantly brutal saga featuring the gritty London detective inspector (Sleepyhead, Scaredy Cat, and Lazybones). In The Burning Girl, Thorne teams up with retired detective Carol Chamberlain to help solve a horrific 20-year-old crime that ties in with an ongoing war between gangland families.

Thorne is investigating an escalating turf war between two major underworld factions -- specifically, murders involving an assassin-for-hire who marks his victims by carving a large X into their backs with what appears to be a filleting knife -- when he gets a disturbing call from Chamberlain concerning an old crime involving a madman who inexplicably set a young girl on fire. The man, Gordon Rooker, confessed to the crime and has been in jail ever since, but someone claiming to be the real pyromaniac has been sending Chamberlain some not-so-subtle messages that the wrong person was convicted. As Thorne delves deeper into the "X Man" murders and Chamberlain reexamines the tragic case of the burning girl, they discover links between the crimes -- but as Thorne closes in on the killer, an X appears on his own door…

Billingham has been hailed as the next great British crime writer, and with good reason. With masterfully plotted (and frequently shocking) story lines driven by rage, lust, greed, and corpses, a cast of starkly realistic characters, and pacing that should legally require a seatbelt, Billingham's The Burning Girl is a wild literary thrill ride that is as unpredictable as it is unforgettable. Buckle up and enjoy! Paul Goat Allen
