#Review: Love Like Blood by Mark Billingham @MarkBillingham @LittleBrownUK

This is a book I’ve had sat in my tbr for a while now. I had all good intentions but like with so many other books, time just got away from me. A few weeks back I had a good few hours to kill driving to Stirling and back to attend Bloody Scotland so I figured what the hell, bought the audio book (I’m slowly collecting the entire Tom Thorne back catalogue that way any how) and set it to play. As soon as we’ve taken a quick look at the book blurb, I’ll let you know what I thought.
