Two cops. One city. No mercy. The new race-against-time bestseller by the UK Harlan Coben
Simon Kernick is one of Britain's most exciting thriller writers.
He arrived on the crime writing scene with his highly acclaimed
debut novel The Business of Dying, the story of a corrupt
cop moonlighting as a hitman. Simon's big breakthrough came with
his novel Relentless which was the biggest selling thriller
of 2007. His most recent crime thrillers include Siege,
Ultimatum, Stay Alive and The Final Minute. He
is also the author of the bestselling three-part serial thrillers
Dead Man's Gift and One By One.
Simon talks both on and off the record to members of the Counter Terrorism Command and the Serious and Organised Crime Agency, so he gets to hear first hand what actually happens in the dark and murky underbelly of UK crime.
"Pace, pace, pace is what Kernick does best, and this utterly
gripping thriller brings together his great renegade cops Dennis
Milne and Tina Boyd for this first time. Revenge is the name of the
game here in a filthy Manila" * Daily Mirror *
"Delights, excited and stimulates, and the only reason you consume it so quickly is because it's so damn good" * GQ *
"Here's the nitty-gritty. This is a masterpiece of thriller writing that proves Kernick is a world clas operator. His latest surefire hit moves at breakneck speed from London to Hong Kong and the Philippines. It should have a health warning on the cofver as you may well forget to ear, sleep or even breathe as it sucks you into its addictive grip" * Peterborough Evening Telegraph *
