Publisher's Summary

When former soldier Dan Tyler wakes up in a strange room on a bed covered in blood, with no idea how he got there, he thinks he's stepped into someone else's nightmare. But he's wrong. This is reality. The corpse beside him is Leah, a girl he's met recently. And it gets worse. As he staggers from the bed the phone rings, and a voice tells him to press play on the room's DVD machine. The film shows Tyler killing Leah. Then he's told to go to an address in East London where he's to deliver a briefcase and await further instructions.
There's no way out. The evidence against him looks rock-solid. Tyler's heading into terrible danger. If he's to survive the next 12 hours, he must find out who really murdered Leah - and why.

Listened start to finish non stop...KNACKERED!

As the title said, started to listen over the weekend and didn't sleep until I finished... my faultfor starting it at 8 pm! gory in parts but well written. Main character did seem to be extremely lucky in the book but this did not detract form the action too much but loved it anyway. Want more Simon Kernick unabridged titles here please?

Another gripping Kernick Novel

This is the third Kernick novel I have come across. I first read 'Relentless' which I couldn't put down, then 'A good day to die' which I found equally absorbing.
What you get with Kernick are fast paced thrillers that grab you from page one and hold your attention throughout. In actual fact they grab you from the summary on the back page, that's certainly how I was drawn into his books.
If you are new to Kernick's work and like puzzling thrillers then I completely recommend them all. If you've previously enjoyed his work then you'll love 'Severed'
The novel immedietly starts with a puzzling situation that pulls you in and doesn't let go until the resolution. The characters that you meet along the way only add to the tale and will have you second guessing their roles as the novel progresses.
In short, it's a great novel, well worth reading and I can't wait for his next one.
