It's cold, it's December - and ex-cop Dennis Milne is intent on revenge. His best friend has been brutally executed, and Milne wants to know who did it - and why. But London is a dangerous place, especially for a man on his own. And although his former colleagues don't know Milne's back in town, it soon becomes clear there are people who do. And that they'll stop at nothing to get him out of the way. From the beaches of the Philippines to the mean streets of London, a hunt for justice becomes a terrifying battle for survival.show more

About Simon Kernick

Simon Kernick lives near London and has two young children. The research for his 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.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
