Dead Man's Gift by Simon Kernick is written as a three part series and is a joy for the commuter at a reasonable price.
Part one: Yesterday opens with the murder of an au pair and the abduction of her charge, politician Tim Horton's son Max. The kidnappers request a strange and horrific fee for the safe return of the boy and realising that he and his wife are being observed by the kidnappers Horton enlists the help of his brother- in -law, Scope which brings us neatly on to...
Part 2: Last Night
Scope, reluctantly dragged into helping his brother-in-law soon becomes involved in a series of violent events in the company of Horton's mistress Orla . As time runs out and the deadline approaches Kernick moves us on to...
As Political events unfold and things don't go to plan for the kidnappers Scope desperately follows the only clue he has and in an adrenalin packed race chases the kidnappers to a suburban village for a showdown.
This mini series is as gritty and fast paced as Kernick's Seige - they yank you into the moment and leave you breathless and desperate for the next part.
