Good As Dead - Mark Billingham I really enjoyed the standalone book Billingham wrote, where we were first introduced to the character of Helen Weeks, so I was excited to see her return in "Good as Dead" and to see her feature so prominantly in the story. I loved the plot, and thought the hostage angle kept things moving and created a much faster pace than is usually expected with this type of novel. Again, a brilliant example of detective fiction, which is nothing less than I'd expect from Mark Billingham.
