Mark Billingham's six best books

Mark Billingham is the author of the bestselling Tom Thorne detective novels, including the award-winning Lazybones and Death Message. An adaptation of his Time Of Death is being filmed for the BBC. His latest novel is the standalone thriller, Die Of Shame.

One of Billingham's six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
THE BIG BLOWDOWN by George Pelecanos

A crime thriller set among Washington DC’s immigrant Greek community. Pelecanos is one of those writers who makes me envious. He’s elegant and his dialogue is great. He was a writer on The Wire and this is his best book.
