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

When Operation Surgical Strike goes horribly wrong, suspicion quickly falls on one of the officers involved: Stegs Jenner. No ordinary undercover cop, Stegs is a man who’s always lived life on the edge. Now he decides to go it alone. DI John Gallan and his partner DS Tina Boyd are part of the subsequent investigation to bring Stegs to justice. What they cannot know is that their enquiries will take both of them into the heart of one of London’s most notorious criminal gangs –and one of them into the rifle sights of the enemy.

Reviews of this title
