    As a result of his importune actions in the previous novel in the series, “Good As Dead,” Tom Thorne finds himself demoted to uniform duties, while remaining an inspector. You can put him in a patrol car, but you can’t take his analytical and detecting abilities away. So, when several senior citizens are discovered to have committed suicide, Tom sniffs a different story: murder.

    But when he tries to convince a detective on the Murder Squad about his analysis, he is ignored. So Tom Thorne, being the person he is, goes about it on his own, without the tools or assistance needed, relying on friends to chase down whatever information can help identify the murderer, jeopardizing not only his own position as a policeman, but theirs as well,

    Thorne is an enigma: A talented detective, he defies the standard demands and set ways of established police methodology. This novel is the 11th in the series (Mr. Billingham has also written two standalones), all well-written page-turners. “The Dying Hours” is a welcome addition, and happily, according to an interview included at the end of this book the 12th is already in the works.
