Publisher's Summary

The gripping new race-against-time thriller by the best-selling author of Relentless, The Last 10 Seconds and The Final Minute.
I had a simple choice. Stay here and almost certainly be discovered.
Or get up and run.
The Witness
When Jane Kinnear sees her lover being murdered, she suddenly finds herself in danger. Taken to an anonymous police safe house, it soon becomes clear that her lover was an MI5 informant with important information about an imminent terrorist attack.
The Detective
DI Ray Mason of Counter Terrorism Command is a man with a controversial past, but his effectiveness at getting results means that he's now been given the task of preventing the attack from taking place. But can he be trusted, and does he know more about the attack than he's letting on?
The Killer
In the safe house, Jane is trying to piece together a description of her lover's killer. But what she doesn't know is that the killer has already found out who she is and where she is hiding.
And now he's coming for her....

Genuine Action Story With a Very Good Performance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I will, because it is action from the very first minute to the last minute with an excellent performance with a female voice for female characters and male voices for male characters what ought to be a standard. At least for all top selling stories.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The doings of the main character filled most of the time in this story without him being any kind of an unrealistic superman.

Which scene was your favorite?

The Caribian island scene.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?


Any additional comments?

Just as in some other Simon Kernic books, there are a few parts which doesn't really fit together and some strange matters are not explained at all. However, it is an action novel with the very best performance I've heard in ages what makes it a good choice.

A good listen

I'm giving this a 4 rating. It is better than average. Yes, it is spies , bad guys, guns, egos, red herrings, terrorism -sort of- tosed togethr in a book that is fun to listeen to - with a trailer that I hopes leads to a sequel. It takes pkace in Britain so ee see their attitude to guns- so different to Amrtia's.

Sorry, but couldn't stand the female narrator. Totally spoiled it for me no matter how many times I tried to get into it. Loved the other books but will think twice about listening to any more

Not the best from this author

I was so looking forward to this and thoroughly enjoyed the first chapter but just couldn't get away with the narrator change, it spoilt it for me.
