London is under attack.
People are dead. Many more lives hang in the balance as a group of highly trained gunmen storm the historic Lanchester Hotel on Park Lane.
The gunmen have given the government just five hours to meet their demands before they blow up the building. Shots ring out. Some guests panic. Others text their loved ones. Still more try to escape. All are united by one thing: fear for their lives. All - except one man who has information so dangerous that it must be kept safe - at any price.
Darkness falls. The gunmen become increasingly violent. One question is in everybody's minds. Will they survive the night?

Critic reviews

“The writing in Siege is tight and fast-paced, and the action comes thick and fast from the very first line, if you’re up for a bit of action, there’s plenty of excitement to be found here.” ( Trucking News)
"The master of the race-against-time thriller has pulled off another cracker with this tense tale of London under terrorist attack…it’s great, fast moving fun." ( Sunday Mirror )
"The author is one of Britain’s top thriller writers and his latest yarn is another page turner – pacy, violent and gripping" ( The Sun)

Wow! what a fast-paced thriller

I'd meant to listen to this book over a week or so but was so gripped by the story I kept returning to the recording eager to find out what happened next. I felt I was witnessing the siege in real-time as the events only span about 15 hours. There are twists and turns and surprises along the way and moral dilemmas for the characters to wrestle with. Paul Thornley's narration is excellent and help to jack-up the tension. Great stuff!

His best yet ?

Reading his novels out of sequence probably doesn't aid a balanced overview BUT this is an incredibly well put together storyline.

Paul Thornley is by some distance the best narrator for these types of books.

Highly highly recommended

Very Thrilling

Would you consider the audio edition of Siege to be better than the print version?

Not neccessary, but the audio edition is much easier to handle.

What other book might you compare Siege to and why?

Must be some other work of Simon Kernick bacause he is a master of that kind of novels.

What does Paul Thornley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He does e great job, indeed, what bring the listener "closer to what happens".

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Every part was on a high level.

Any additional comments?

Simon Kernick is the "one and only" master of his kind of writing.
