This is a fantastic thriller, combining a gripping plot and lead characters of remarkable depth. A series to savor . . . it's impossible to put down Their Little Secret
Booklist
Their Little Secret is a cracking read! It features one of the most twisted relationships I've ever read. I couldn't put it down!
Shari Lapena
One of the most compelling figures in contemporary crime fiction . . . Beautifully constructed and written, it pulses with the humanity that is Billingham's - and Thorne's - trademark
Daily Mail
Reliably ace
Heat
Billingham scores even higher in his continuing brilliance in portraying Thorne the person
Marcel Berlins, The Times
Mark Billingham is one of the greatest writers in this, or any other genre
Steve Cavanagh
I guarantee you won't see the ending coming. The Thorne books just keep getting better. Billingham is a superb crime writer with a sharp eye for detail and Thorne is one of the most interesting detectives in contemporary crime fiction
Jake Kerridge, Daily Express
His exploration of relationships makes this novel much more interesting than an ordinary straightforward police procedural
Literary Review
An object lesson in how to take an established series into shockingly deep waters without losing the thread that keeps the franchise going
Kirkus
Is there a more peerless crime writer at work today than Mark Billingham? There are few writers whose work I enjoy more
Crime Time
Hugely intelligent and authentic
Belinda Bauer, author of Snap
The twisted plot unfolds gradually, with a maximum of suspense. Billingham never strains credulity in this thoughtful page-turner
Publishers Weekly
You'll read over several days, but for which you give up sleep because you have to know what happens . . . It's a highly-recommended, brilliant book
The Book Bag
Mark Billingham is a damn fine storyteller whose thrilling books always satisfy. With a propulsive plot that is as gripping as it is unnerving, you will not be able to put this book down. Their Little Secret is an unforgettable ride
Karin Slaughter
