Mark Billingham

is a must-read, and here's a review at January Magazine that makes the case. Read his first three eagerly (off of copies from the WHSmith at Kings Cross, coming from the British Library to visit my gran in Highgate). But why don't these books come out simultaneously in UK and US? He would have a huge US following if those books had all been available in trade and/or mass market PB in same time frame, surely...

  1. Hell if I know, Jenny, because by rights Mark should have the kind of following he does in the UK, where he's really starting to nip Rankin's heels on the bestseller lists a bit. And yes, THE BURNING GIRL is great--probably the best in the series.
