"In the gripping ninth Tom Thorne novel, a man long thought killed by his long-suffering wife turns up alive. And other people begin to turn up dead. A decade ago, Alan Langford's charred remains were discovered in his burnt-out car. His wife, Donna, was found guilty of conspiracy to murder her husband and sentenced to ten years in prison. But before she is released, Donna receives a nasty shock: an anonymous letter containing a photo of her husband. The man she hates with every fiber of her being-- the man she paid to have murdered-- seems very much alive and well. But how is it possible that her husband is still alive? Where is he? Who sent the photo, and why?"--From publisher's web site.

Really like the character (Thorne) but the plot was not as good as I would have liked

Too slow. I think it's a bit overrated. It does build central charecters better than most crime novels, but the pace is too slow and the suspense is not gripping enough.

Highly recommend this series starring DI Tom Thorne. It has won numerous awards.
There is a cast of core characters that return with lots of new faces (& criminals) thrown in to keep it fresh & interesting.
Although each can be enjoyed as a stand alone book, there are periodic references to past people & events to reward the faithful reader.
