No Alibis Event

Simon Kernick


Friday 18th February at 6:00PM


No Alibis Bookstore are pleased to invite you to an evening of with crime writer Simon Kernick on Friday 18th February at 6PM to celebrate the launch of his new novel,Simon Kernick, author of No. 1 bestseller The Last Ten Seconds, is one of Britain’s most exciting thriller writers. His debut novel, The Business of Dying, featuring Dennis Milne was highly acclaimed, but his big breakthrough came with the novel Relentless, which became the bestselling thriller of 2007. Truly committed to his work, Simon’s research is what makes his books so credible. He talks to members of Special Branch, the Anti-Terrorist Branch and the Serious and Organised Crime Agency both on and off the record to hear first hand about the dark underworld of UK crime.

Born and brought up in Slough, Simon now lives in Oxfordshire. To find out more about his thrillers, visit his website. Dennis Milne, jaded former cop, is back. Corrupt, he’s earned his living killing the bad guys – drug dealers and crooked business men - who, in his opinion, deserve death. Biding his time in Manila, he lies in wait for his next target: a young woman with some bad life choices and some powerful enemies. DI Tina Boyd is a woman on a mission. Hell-bent on retribution, she’s looking for the man she blames for her lover’s death. Tough, spiky and determined, she heads to Manila to kill him, before he kills her... Two renegade cops with pasts that haunt them are about to collide, with spectacular results... The Payback sees three of Kernick’s most memorable characters meet: Dennis Milne, DI Tina Boyd and Paul Wise.

Top notch crime is Simon. Wish I could be there, but I'm across the sea. Hope he visits Manchester soon.

I'm on the No Alibi's emails list and it is complete torture to see all the great events I can't go to. It will be one of my my first stop when I get to go to IRE, that's for sure. Sounds like a good read and event.
