THRILLER REVIEW: Siege - Simon Kernick

Release Date: 19/01/12


London is under attack. People are dead. Many more lives hang in the balance as a group of highly trained gunmen storm the historic Lanchester Hotel on Park Lane. The gunmen have given the government just five hours to meet their demands before they blow up the building. Shots ring out. Some guests panic. Others text their loved ones. Still more try to escape. All are united by one thing: fear for their lives. All - except one man who has information so dangerous that it must be kept safe - at any price. Darkness falls. The gunmen become increasingly violent. One question is in everybody's minds. Will they survive the night?


If you love a gritty London based thriller, then Simon Kernick if an author to buy. The writing is gripping, the prose fast and they hit as hard as the bullets flying around within and of course the pace is such that you really have to hang on from the first page to the last. Add to this Simon’s usual writing style that delivers everything a thriller fan is looking for alongside a story that has believability about it and you really are in for a special treat with this title.

Great stuff all in.
