About the Author


Author Picture

Simon Kernick

Simon Kernick is in his thirties, and lives with his wife and two young children near London.

The research for Simon Kernick's novels is what makes them so authentic. His extensive list of contacts in the police force has been built up over more than a decade. It includes long serving officers in Special Branch, the National Crime Squad (now SOCA), and the Anti-Terrorist Branch, all of whom have plenty of tales to tell.

Synopsis of this title

Did someone try to kill me or am I going mad? When writer Rob Fallon gets drunk one night and ends up joining his friend's girlfriend, Jenny, back at her apartment in London's West End, he's feeling guilty before anything's even happened. But guilt quickly turns to shock when two men break into the apartment, abduct Jenny, and try to kill Rob. Somehow he manages to escape, but when he reports the abduction to the police no one believes him.Jenny's father claims she's on holiday abroad, her apartment appears untouched, and the doorman didn't see or hear anything. But Rob knows what he witnessed and he can't let things lie - not with Jenny's life in danger. But when he starts asking questions, he finds himself the target of faceless killers who'll stop at nothing to get him out of the way. But what is it they're so desperate to hide? And what does it have to do with an ordinary girl like Jenny? Either he finds out, or he's dead. It's that simple. And time's already running out...
