Review: Scaredy Cat

Scaredy Cat Scaredy Cat by Mark Billingham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Taut thriller with nicely-drawn characterisation and a structure that enhances what could have been a cliched storyline, cleverly entwining past and present narratives while playfully twisting the killer-couple framework. It is let down slightly by some dodgy gender politics, and a climax that veers towards a 'written for TV' feel, but generally a very satisfying read.
