A thrilling standalone from the acclaimed author of the
Tom Thorne series, Die of Shame centers on a murder in
London and an Alcoholics Anonymous group whose members must
turn on each other to find the killer
From British thriller master Mark Billingham, a recent
finalist for the Crime Writers' Association Dagger in the
Library, Die of Shame is a chilling story of addiction,
subterfuge, and murder.
Every Monday evening, six people gather in a smart North
London house to talk about shame. A respected doctor, a
well-heeled housewife, a young male prostitute . . . they
could not be more different. All they have in common is a

confidentiality that binds these individuals and their
therapist together, which makes things difficult for
Detective Inspector Nicola Tanner, a woman who can
appreciate the desire to keep personal matters private. If

cost someone their life? And how do you find the truth when
secrets, lies, and denial are second nature to all of your
