The Last 10 Seconds by Simon Kernick


36 hours ago a serial killer is arrested on the streets of North London after a two year reign of terror. Known as the Night Creeper, hes earned his reputation by torturing 5 young women to death.

24 hours ago undercover cop Sean Egan has infiltrated one of the country's most nototrious criminal gangs. Now he is about to risk his life in a desperate bid to bring its members to justice.

12 hours ago DI Tina Boyd has discovered that the Night Creeper's murders are part of a much larger criminal conspiracy. But the quest for the truth has brought her into contact with some very dangerous people who want to silence her - permanently.

The last 10 seconds A man, A woman and a serial killer. As they race towards a terrifying confrontation only one thing is certain: they are all going to have to fight very hard to stay alive.

Absolutely fantastic page turner, right from the beginning your drawn in. One chapter follows DI Tina Boyd, the next Sean Egan as they both tackle their cases and try to get to the bottom of their investigation/undercover op.

Breath stopping, heart racing and left constantly on the edge of your seat. Just when you think you have it figured out something changes and your left guessing. When one mystery is finally solved there comes another twist in the plot.

Possibly my favourite book of his so far (although I lost some sleep hours as I had to finish it which kept me up into the wee hours of the morning). 5/5 for me
