it was amazing

This is Mark Billingham's first novel, it introduces Tom Thorne detective.

Thorne is a no nonsense copper who is thrown into a case dealing with locked in syndrome. The killer has killed 3 women trying to perfect his 'skill'. Unfortunately for Alison, he succeeds with her. She isn't dead, but left in coma like state but she still has all her senses, but all she can is blink.

The book follows Thorne trying to understand the killer's motive, and the killer's obsession with Thorne.

I loved this book, I really like Thorne as a character. The book is well written and completely enjoyable.
