"Simon Kernick writes with his foot pressed hard on the pedal. Hang on tight!" (Harlan Coben)
"Simon Kernick writes great plots, great characters, great action" (Lee Child)
"If it's heart-thudding tension you want, Simon Kernick is your man" (Carla McKay Daily Mail)
"Simon Kernick uses every trick in the book to keep the action breakneck" (Time Out)
"The pace is unrelenting, the twists fun...and the characters are instantly engaging" (Zoo)
Since writing Relentless, Simon Kernick has established himself as the master of the race-against-time thriller. Focusing on an ordinary person in an everyday context, he shows how something as insignificant as a phone-call or a date with one's girlfriend can pitch one over the edge into a hostile world when one's life is at stake.
Deadline is no exception: a woman comes home from work and finds her daughter has been kidnapped. What happens next? In Kernick's world, we have under a week of non-stop action which stretches all the protagonists to breaking point, and in which Detective Bolt finds to his cost that he can trust absolutely no one.
I love this book because I think it's Kernick's best yet, and also because he introduces the voice of the kidnap victim, a teenage girl, as she waits for her abductor to return. This gives the narrative a personal touch that I find really effective. I hope you do too!
