Rabbit Hole by Mark Billingham

My name is Alice.  I’m a police officer.
I’m trying to solve a murder on a psychiatric ward.
But I’m also a patient…

They were meant to be safe on Fleet Ward: psychiatric patients monitored, treated, cared for.  But now one of their number is found murdered, and the accusations begin to fly.

Was it one of his fellow patients?  A member of staff?  Or did someone come in from the outside?

DC Alice Armitage is methodical, tireless, and she’s quickly on the trail of the killer.

The only problem is, Alice is a patient too.

Peer & Press Reviews

I was totally drawn into Rabbit Hole by Alice, the novel’s wildly unreliable narrator.  Hilarious, menacing yet vulnerable, she’s a brilliant creation, alive on the page.  Billingham creates the dark, claustrophobic world of the psychiatric ward with both immense skill and heart.

Eve Chase, author of The Glass House

Billingham’s picture of the ward and its staff is full of humanity, leaving us with a clear sense that this kind of illness could affect any of us, and the story offers an excellent twist.  He gets better and better.

Literary Review

When the solution comes it’s perfectly satisfying.  My guess, though, is that what most readers will remember more intensely is… Alice’s voice: by turns funny, broken, chatty, defiant, bewildered – but always utterly convincing and compelling.
