Review: Die of Shame

Die of Shame Die of Shame by Mark Billingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review: DIE OF SHAME by Mark Billingham

Another fascinating novel by a can't-miss author, DIE OF SHAME is exactly what the characters undergo, metaphorically or literally. Like a game of "Clue," my insistence on the identity of the villain bounced from one character to another, adding to the intrigue. Although there is plot--a strong one--I see the novel as character-driven. What the therapist calls 'here and now" is cleverly, consistently, intertwined with the past of various characters, and their backstory. Additionally, the female Detective Inspector is strong, empowered, determined, and evolving. London also is a character, by its presence.
