1.0 out of 5 stars A big disappointment, 2 May 2011
This review is from: The Last 10 Seconds: (Tina Boyd 5) (Paperback)
I read lots of 'action/thriller' type books and was looking for a new author to try. What a waste of time! Whilst Kernick's book has all the elements needed to produce a thriller, the cardboard-cutout characters, obvious villains, sterotypical bosses and detectives, leave the reader cold. You don't care about them, there's hardly ever a sense of peril. Why treat us to a five-page fight scene, apparently with deadly weapons, when it's evident who is going to survive the fight? If you find Kernick entertaining, try trading up to any one of Lee Child, Michael Connolly or Robert Crais - now they know how to write.
