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 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!
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 love crime writing and have watched Kernick just get better and better and Deadline is definitely one of the best. The plot is cleverly structured and there are plenty of twists and turns. The characters are very well-rounded and you just have to keep reading as Kernick drip-feeds you details of their lives.
Perfect beach/commuter read...
