"From the first line, Kernick knows how to get a thriller shifting, and he doesn't let up until the very last ... he puts a London hotel under siege, to brilliantly dramatic effect." * Daily Mirror * "The author is one of Britain's top thriller writers and his latest yarn is another page turner - pacy, violent and gripping" * The Sun * "A murder-a-minute gallop which successfully relies on sheer pace." * Daily Telegraph * "A gripping read with a rich cast of nicely crafted characters and a clever plot - or two - that comes together in a decidedly satisfactory ending." * The Times * "Excellent at police and intelligence detail ... expertly plotted ... fast, furious and professional" * Daily Mail *
Early in this nonstop action thriller from British author Kernick (The Last 10 Seconds), six terrorists charge into a five-star, 320-room London hotel with guns blazing and take hundreds of people hostage. The team is led by Wolf (all six use animal code names), but the real man in charge is Fox, who's involved in the operation for money rather than ideological reasons. The hotel's plucky duty manager, Elena Serenko, has to do the terrorists' bidding while attempting to save as many of her guests as possible. The terrorists shoot anyone who even looks as if he or she is going to cause trouble. Outside, the massive police response is led by newly promoted Deputy Assistant Commissioner Arely Dale, who has a life-threatening secret. A strong cast of supporting characters supplies a continuing stream of engaging subplots that play out within the larger takeover story. Kernick keeps all the balls in the air as he delivers an exciting performance. Agent: Amanda Preston, LBA Literary Agency (U.K.). (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
