Fast paced action thriller with action split between southern England and Scotland. DCS Mike Bolt is working a challenging brutal serial killer case, when for the first time a potential victim escapes, Amanda Rowan. Lots of violence follows when she is targetted by ruthless gangsters at her hideaway in Scotland and a frantic cat and mouse chase develops. Keeps you turning the pages and not questioning the reality too closely, such is the fast pace. ( )

An absolutely fantastic book which kept me spellbound and on the edge of my seat from the first page to the last. A great twist in the plot occurs in the very last chapter. It centred around a serial killer nicknamed the disciple and a copycat murder that actually had been carried out by the wife and her lover of the murdered husband and his lover. Lots of excitement follows a chase between the father of the woman who was murdered and paid killers which also included a family of four innocent bystanders. Fast pace action from start to finish.

This is an excellent book which gets your attention from the beginning and you just want to read on and on and on. There are plenty of twists and surprises throughout the book. If you like thrillers this is just the book for you. I have now read three books by Simon Kernick in recent months and really enjoyed them all. If you like Harlan Coben's standalone books I think you will enjoy Simon Kernick's books. ( )

From Fantastic Fiction:

t's a sunny afternoon, and you're deep in the country on a river trip with your family. You're nearing journey's end when a shot rings out - and your whole life changes in an instant. A woman is coming towards you, chased by three gunmen.

It's clear she's in terrible danger. And now you are too. Because although you don't know it, she harbors a deadly secret. Night falls. You're running, terrified, desperate to find safety. All you know is that the men hunting you have killed before.

My Thoughts:

I read this in day and a half. The pages just spun by as you get caught in the pace of it all. If you liked this, might I suggest you have a look at the film, A Lonely Place to Die which had a similar theme and the same sort of pace.

The characters work and there enough twists and turns that you are left guessing until the very end. The only bit for me that stretched credibility too far was maybe "the old man in the cottage", but I was enjoying myself too much to really care! 5 stars and I will diffidently read more of this author.

I picked up this book as I am keen on crime thrilers.

At first, it was hard to get into, the first few chapters containing Amanda were thrilling and gripping. But without warning it changes to a completely different set of characters in a completely different location so I was easily confused, trying to remember how Amanda was linked to Scope, were they linked to DS bolt, and were they linked to Keogh. In the end it dsoes all come together.
