Review: The Payback by Simon Kernick

Batam Press, €16.99, Hardback

Simon Kernick has established himself as one of Britain's most exciting thriller-writing talents, and his latest offering puts three of his longest-standing characters on collision course.

There's Paul Wise, international crime boss and cruel paedophile who lives in Cyprus beyond the reach of extradition laws; renegade cop Dennis Milne who is now a killer for hire salving his conscience by only taking contracts on people with no saving graces; and DI Tina Boyd who has lost the confidence of her superiors because of her obsession about bringing Wise to justice.

This is fast-paced, gritty entertainment of the highest order.
