The Author

author picture

Simon Kernick is in his thirties, and lives with his wife and two young children near London.

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.


The Novel

It's a cold November night, and DS Dennis Milne is waiting to kill three unarmed men. Cynical and jaded, Milne earns money on the side by doing what he does best: punishing the bad guys. But he's been set up. This time, instead of shooting drug dealers, he kills two customs officers and an accountant. The hunter has become the hunted. With his colleagues and his enemies closing in on him, Milne must use all of his skills, just to stay alive.


Reviews

Time Out
'is just the sort of fast-paced, intelligent thriller that cries out for a TV adaptation.

Literary Review
'An uncommonly assured first novel, quite brilliantly plotted ... Formidable stuff'

Time Out
'Gripping and thought provoking...Kernick weaves his web with the assurance of a seasoned professional'

Reginald Hill
'Taut, gripping, disturbing - a most assured and original debut'
