Dennis Milne is a former cop and part-time assassin. He kills the bad guys - people who, in his opinion, deserve to die. Now he's in Manila, waiting for his next target: a young woman who's made some deadly enemies. DI Tina Boyd is in Manila hunting down the man responsible for the death of her lover. She knows he's dangerous. She knows he's ruthless. But she's determined to bring him to justice - even if it kills her. Two cops with pasts that haunt them - and a present that could see them both dead. They are about to meet. And when they do, it's payback time.show more

Review quote

"Pace, pace, pace is what Kernick does best, and this utterly gripping thriller brings together his great renegade cops Dennis Milne and Tina Boyd for this first time. Revenge is the name of the game here in a filthy Manila" * Daily Mirror * "Delights, excited and stimulates, and the only reason you consume it so quickly is because it's so damn good" * GQ * "Here's the nitty-gritty. This is a masterpiece of thriller writing that proves Kernick is a world clas operator. His latest surefire hit moves at breakneck speed from London to Hong Kong and the Philippines. It should have a health warning on the cofver as you may well forget to ear, sleep or even breathe as it sucks you into its addictive grip" * Peterborough Evening Telegraph *show more
