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 like Milne. Because although his former colleagues don't know he'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

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 Lippman "Kernick is excellent at capturing the mean streets where crack deals go down and tourists don't linger" * Daily Mail * "Kernick has produced a first-rate series of contemporary hard-bolied London thrillers, with ... a sympathetic character in Milne" * Sunday Telegraph * "Simon Kernick writes with his foot pressed hard on the pedal. Hang on tight!" -- Harlan Cobenshow more

He arrived on the crime writing scene with his highly acclaimed debut novel The Business of Dying, the story of a corrupt cop moonlighting as a hitman. Simon's big breakthrough came with his novel Relentless which was the biggest selling thriller of 2007. His most recent crime thrillers include Siege, Ultimatum, Stay Alive and The Final Minute. He is also the author of the bestselling three-part serial thrillers Dead Man's Gift and One By One. Simon talks both on and off the record to members of the Counter Terrorism Command and the Serious and Organised Crime Agency, so he gets to hear first hand what actually happens in the dark and murky underbelly of UK crime.show more
