The motive for the first murder was a mystery. Until someone from Tom Thorne’s Serious Crimes team found a stack of letters addressed to the victim, a man who had just come out of prison. It was clear he had been tricked. In the second murder ‘again of an ex-prisoner’ the problem was not so much the motive as the question of who had access to the database containing the prisoners’ data. Does the perpetrator work for the police? Or is it a counselor with its own revenge agenda? In any case, it is established that all the victims ‘because more will follow’ had been convicted of rape.
In this third thriller from Mark Billingham, the lead roles are again for Inspector Tom Thorne and Dave Holland. Their team is now joined by a retired policewoman who has been persuaded to return to work as part of a campaign to overcome the shortage of staff in the police force.
“Billingham is a world-class thriller writer.”
– Karin Slaughter
“One of the most compelling crime writers around today.”

“A master of writing raw thrillers. It is especially impressive how realistic his characters are.”

Man, man, man – the book
After the award-winning podcast now: Man, man, man – the book. About everything men do.
In Man man man, the book Domien Verschuuren, Bas Louissen and Chris Bergström – known for the podcast Man man man – tell you everything you always wanted to know about men but were afraid to ask. Like the podcast, this book features candid conversations about masculinity. It offers a vulnerable and funny insight into how De Moderne Man sees himself today, and how ‘masculine’ he thinks about a whole range of subjects. In addition, the book contains some longer personal stories, in which the authors ‘have no embarrassment to talk about emotions or show who they really are’. Man man man, with more than half a million streams monthly, is one of the most listened to podcasts in the Netherlands. The theater performances that resulted from the podcast attracted thousands of people to the halls. Man man man, the book is the next step in their success story.
‘This is a phenomenon, there is no other way to describe it!’ Eva Jinek
‘Their mutual conversations, always about a different theme, are full of special moments. The key to success is their candor.’ **** de Volkskrant
