Dennis Milne is back! A dark, gritty, utterly page-turning novel set in London s meanest of mean streets: the follow-up to the hugely acclaimed debut, The Business of Dying.
When Dennis Milne now living under an assumed identity in the Philippines hears that his old friend and colleague Malik has been gunned down in a restaurant, he decides to go back to the violent city he once called home, and bring the murderer to book.
Milne arrives in a pre-Christmas London that is cold and hostile. But he is no longer a policeman; no longer charged with keeping the peace and upholding the law.
Although his friends at the King s Cross station do not know that Milne is back in town, it soon becomes clear that his arrival has been expected by men who are after his blood. Hungry for revenge and determined to uphold his own very rough brand of justice, Milne s search for the person behind his friend s death leaves a trail of death and destruction that is more wide-reaching than even he could have expected.

Good gracious, this book is the most cliché riddled bag of rubbish ever committed to paper. Every character is so uninspired and unoriginal. Lee Child come back! All is forgiven! A minus mark would be the most appropriate rating. Read full review

About the author (2011)

Simon Kernick is one of Britain's most exciting thriller writers. He arrived on the crime writing scene with his highly acclaimed debut novel The Business of Dying, the story of a corrupt cop moonlighting as a hitman. Simon's big breakthrough came with his novel Relentless which was the biggest selling thriller of 2007. His most recent crime thrillers include Siege, Ultimatum, Stay Alive and The Final Minute. He is also the author of the bestselling three-part serial thrillers Dead Man's Gift and One By One.

Simon talks both on and off the record to members of the Counter Terrorism Command and the Serious and Organised Crime Agency, so he gets to hear first hand what actually happens in the dark and murky underbelly of UK crime.
