THE UNDERCOVER COP. Having worked undercover the last ten years, Sean Egan is used to life on the edge. He's recently infiltrated one of London's most dangerous criminal gangs, and they've just informed him that they want him for a very special job: the daring abduction from police custody of a serial killer known as The Night Creeper.

THE KILLER. Brutally violent yet highly intelligent, The Night Creeper has earned his reputation by torturing five young women to death. Arrested the previous night, he claims that he has a cast-iron alibi for one of the murders, and some highly important information that can prove his innocence - and implicates someone else.

THE POLICEWOMAN. DI Tina Boyd has an instinct for trouble, and a past that continues to haunt her. She was the policewoman who charged The Night Creeper. Now he's been kidnapped, and it's Tina's task to find him. And find him fast, because it's clear that some very dangerous people want to silence him permanently.

A man, a woman and a sadistic killer. As they race towards a terrifying confrontation only one thing is certain: they're all going to have to fight very hard just to stay alive.

    " An at times exciting page turner. Well paced, strong characters. Just felt it lost its way in places and some if the villains a little unbelievable. However, looking forward to try more if his books as I like his writing style. "

    " Fast, furious and entertaining "

    " A proper page turner with loads of twists. The first Kernick novel I have read (I think). It begins with an undercover police officer, Sean Egan, laying in a room of dead bodies and then transports you back 3 days to the events leading up to it. It also features another cop,Tina Boyd, who like Egan doesn't follow the normal rules to achieve her aim. The basic plot is that they are trying to find a murderer who made his crime appear to be a serial killers & the plot connects vicious gangs, the government and a corrupt police officer or two. You think you know what's going to happen next BUT you don't! "

    " Simon Kernick's books always hook you from the first line to the last and `The Last 10 Seconds' is no exception. I would put it up there as my favourite Kernick book alongside `The Crime Trade'. You get two perspectives as a complex series of crimes is unravelled & from two cops who are both anti-heroes, Tina Boyd and Sean Egan. Neither plays by the rule book, and both have a personal need for revenge. Kernick likes a good anti-hero but for me Undercover Cop Egan was his best yet and I hope he returns in another book. The story is really all about Boyd and Egan, who both admit they are `too alike' by the end, but the central crime plot is also strong - a serial killer's crimes are used to mask a murder that connects the Government, corrupt policeman and murderous underworld gangs. All is revealed at great pace - roll on the next Kernick adaventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 2/3/2014

    " Full of action, maybe just a smidgeon too much. But a good read, well written to keep the suspence moving "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maida | 1/26/2014

    " The problem is I forgot what it was about almost as soon as I finished it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Wilson | 1/17/2014

    " As always kernick is awesome page turning genius "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Cook | 1/14/2014

    " I enjoyed this. It's pretty formulaic, but it's written very well so that each stage keeps you on edge and eager for the next installment. In trying to do that however, he did seem to finish an awful lot of chapters with, "And that's when... (I heard a gunshot behind me)" for example... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frances | 11/28/2013

    " Good police thriller, "

    " This was my first book by Simon Kernick and I am hooked to his books would definitely like to read his other books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil Wood | 11/4/2013

    " Read this book in one sitting, just couldn't put it down "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynda Kelly | 10/12/2013

    " Loved this book. A new author to me too. it's very fast-paced and full of exciting and unexpected twists 'n' turns and I greatly enjoyed it and will be looking out for this author in future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 9/21/2013

    " Compelling page turner, although annoyingly inaccurate by suggestng that Magistrates decide to bail or remand someone charged with murder - more research needed, Mr Kernick! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fat Al | 8/15/2013

    " Pretty standard Kernick fare - easy page-turning stuff that's entertaining, with enough plot twists to keep it lively. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Emecz | 6/12/2013

    " Another dedicated shelf has to be created for Kernick in the house and my wife is getting annoyed. Coben, Crais, Connelly, and others dominate the shelves and now Kernick too. Fast paced and quite tough, excellent travelling on the tube fodder - in the re-visit later category too. "

    " Bog standard. Nothing special & mildly entertaining. Not my cup of tea. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ipek | 1/29/2013

    " It was OK - it was like watching the umpteenth season of 24.... Not really recommend it unless you are very bored and have nothing else to read.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Marshall | 10/28/2012

    " Loved this book!! Fast paced. Action packed. Page turner. Highly recommended :)) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martin Cooper | 9/15/2012

    " Good plot, plenty of action and a few surprises along the way, a crime thriller set in London very difficult to put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 8/15/2012

    " Awesome book, a real page turner. It wasn't as gritty as some of my favourite authors (Stuart Macbride for example) but still had shock value. I couldn't put it down and it has made me want to read 4 or 5 other books by this author, having never read any before. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophy | 3/29/2012

    " This is a brilliant book, twists and turns right till the end.... Ended up awake till early hours because I needed to know what happened . Great detective novel would highly recommend it... "

    " Another rollercoaster read keeping you guessing to the end "
