An unputdownable race-against-time thrilller from the rising star of British crime-writing
Simon Kernick is in his thirties, and lives with his wife and two young children near London. His previous novels, The Business of Dying, The Murder Exchange, The Crime Trade and A Good Day to Die are published as Corgi paperbacks. The research for Simon Kernick's novels is what makes them so authentic. His extensive list of contacts in the police force has been built up over more than a decade. It includes long serving officers in Special Branch, the National Crime Squad (now SOCA), and the Anti-Terrorist Branch, all of whom have plenty of tales to tell.
"Simon Kernick writes with his foot pressed hard on the pedal. Hang on tight!" -- Harlan Coben "Great plots, great characters, great action and some spectacular violence. Simon Kernick might just be the best of Britain's new-wave crime writers." -- Lee Child "Kernick is no longer a writer to watch; he's an author to be reckoned with." -- Mark Billingham "Simon Kernick is a rising star of British crime fiction" -- Mark Lawson On Bbc Radio 4's Front Row
