Product Description

Review

"Simon Kernick writes with his foot pressed hard on the pedal. Hang on tight!" (Harlan Coben)

"Great plots, great characters, great action." (Lee Child)

"The next time I see Simon Kernick's name on a book, I will pick it up. Brilliant!" (Richard Madeley)

"This thriller is so authentic that it completely takes your breath away, and then some." (THE MIRROR, 25-31 July 2008)

"Kernick is the master of the literary rabbit punch, thumping his readers when they least expect it, and from a different direction...Cracking stuff." (THE TIMES, 19 July 2008)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Simon Kernick proves to be an excellent thriller writer. The novel "Deadline" is a clear reflection of this. Word of mouth of communication persuaded me to actually read the novel. I am really satisfied with what I have read, as it is a well paced thriller novel that really intrigued me for long periods. The plot to the novel always surprised you, when you think it is all over.

The Deadline comprises an explosive plot, credible characters and a well portrayal of the criminal world of London. The suburban life is the key background of the novel. The story is about an ordinary businesswoman Andrea, who's daughter kidnapped by mysterious attackers and she is imposed an ransom to ensure the safe return of the daughter. What are the main motives for the kidnapping? Who can she trust? How does she cope with the terrible ordeals leading to the kidnapping? The answers will be all revealed in the novel.

Simon Kernick's novel demonstrates the art of writing a fine thriller. Deadline tops the list of fine thrillers I have read in recent times. It is richly entertaining and additive piece of reading.

I got this book free through WHSmith when I ordered Dan Brown's new novel. Not expecting much, and never having heard of Simon Kernick before, I gave it a go.

Less than 24 hours later, including a night's sleep, two meals, family time, and a walk to the shops, the book is finished! It was excellent with a plot filled with twists and turns which clearly kept me reading to the end. Very enjoyable, and recommended without reservation.

I've enjoyed all Simon Kernick's thrillers, and this one is the best yet. The characters are great especially DI Bolt who's made appearances in Relentless, Severed and now Deadline and who's shaping up to be a really interesting memorable character.

I think of Simon Kernick as a UK Harlan Coben, and this book reminded me of Harlan Coben's The Woods in that it focuses on ordinary people who you sympathise with, and then takes them right to the edge of what they're capable of. Deadline keeps you guessing all the way through, yet you literally can't put it down. When you do, you wonder, what would I have done if this had happened to me? Highly recommended!

This is another outstanding read from Simon Kernick. His ability to engross you in the story is amazing. He builds a character quickly and you feel like you're very familiar with him/her before you've read a quarter of the book. I'd really like to see Simon develop a series character to rival other crime writers who do this. I've read everything he's written and have never been disappointed. I'll buy whatever he writes! Thanks Simon!

One of his best crime thrillers simon kernick does it again.As usual we have di tina boyd and various other police personnel,it basically a kidnap storyline but with lots of twists and turns to say the least.The story does not relent but goes along at a breakneck speed and how other reviewers down rate this book is beyond me.Not to give the plot away just go out and buy it

This book is amazing, got it free with Simon Kernick's new book 'Seige'. 'Deadline' has been written so well and only 50 pages in the book, it keeps you reading and reading throughout the day. This book is heart beating stuff!. More like a horror story, Simon is a really good thriller writer. Once I've read a few more thriller books I'll be trying to write a book!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the third kernick novel I've read and this is the best out of the three ( other two were relentless and final minute). It's just a great page turner, requiring total focus from me, and this is one of those rare thrillers that really makes me want to grip the armchair seat in delirious excitement and eagerness - Alistair Maclean is among those list of rarities - and let's face it we don't read gritty thrillers for ultra character detail or how sad a woman's life is because she couldn't go to a Barry Manilow concert - this is meant for entertainment. Yes, it's bit unpleasant but that's the nature of the book as the characters aren't exactly white as a driven snow. It's quite unpredictable with ultra focus on characters, setting and pace, plus there are more twist and turns than in a Chubby Checker concert. Recommended.

I got this book on a Friday and had it finished by Saturday night, I couldn't put it down. Fantastic book, real thriller that you simply can't stop reading - couldn't recommend enough. This was my first Simon Kernick book but I'll be buying more immediately!!!
