More About the Author

Simon Kernick is one of Britain's most exciting new 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. However, Simon's big breakthrough came with his novel Relentless which was selected by Richard and Judy for their Recommended Summer Reads promotion, and then rapidly went on to become the bestselling thriller of 2007. Simon's research is what makes his thrillers so authentic. He talks both on and off the record to members of Special Branch, the Anti-Terrorist Branch 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.

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!

Certain characters and certain themes appear and are overlayed with a more complex plot the realism in each story makes you question the world we live in

Rattles along at a check of a pace and would make a terrific film! Second novel of Kernick's that I've read and every bit as good as the first.
