REVIEWS

I enthused about Thorne's debut, East of Innocence, which featured disgraced City of London lawyer and hard man David Connell... Authentic, fast-moving and with a wry ear for dialogue, it turned out to be a hit... This excellent second outing for Connell sees him answering a plea from his troubled former lover... So begins an investigation that takes him to Afghanistan, but also sends him to the ugly depths of the Essex underworld. Thorne used to write jokes for comedians, but there is barely a laugh in this grippingly good crime story.Geoffrey Wansell
Daily Mail

A feisty and likeable hero... punchy and fast-paced.
Scotsman

This is a carefully plotted thriller, realistic in its violence and with strong memorable characters. Soon to be adapted into a TV series, it is fast paced and edgy without losing any of its credibility


We Love This Book on EAST OF INNOCENCE

This is a potent mixture of an authentic, brutal crime story, told with a neat line in dialogue and an appealing hero


Daily Mail on EAST OF INNOCENCE

Everyone has a picture of an Essex crime novel. But David Thorne's East of Innocence is a fresh take on this famous county
