From the beaches of the Philippines to the mean streets of London, a hunt for justice becomes a battle for survival. When renegade ex-cop Dennis Milne stumbles upon information that could solve the brutal execution of his friend, he decides to return to the city he once called home, and hunt down the murderer. Milne arrives in a pre-Christmas London that is cold and hostile. But he is no longer a policeman; no longer charged with upholding the law. And although his former colleagues don't know he's back, it soon becomes clear that there are people who do, and they'll stop at nothing to get him out of the way.show more

Review quote

"Simon Kernick may be a new kid on the block but he certainly knows how to crank up the suspense and deliver a kick in the gut when it's needed. A Good Day To Die is a terrific novel. Put this one at the top of your list; it will keep you up well into the night."--Peter Robinson"A Good Day To Die is everything we have come to expect from Kernick -- one of the best young crime writers to have emerged in the past five years. It's a fast-paced yet deeply moral thriller with a thoughtful protagonist who never mistakes himself for a hero."--Laura LippmanPraise for "The Murder Exchange" "Pathos, pace, twists and a savage sense of place make this a guilty pleasure."--"Guardian""From the Hardcover edition."show more

About Simon Kernick

SIMON KERNICK is in his thirties, and lives with his wife and two young children near London. His previous novels, The Business of Dying, The Murder Exchange and The Crime Trade, are published as Corgi paperbacks. The research for Simon Kernick's books is what makes them so authentic. His list of contacts in the police force is extensive and 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.show more
