From the Publisher:

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!
