February 2012 Book of the Month.

One of Britain’s top writers has in Siege created a real edge-of-your-seat race against time thriller.  A top London hotel is being held hostage along with everyone in it by gunmen who are using ever more frightening methods to terrorise those inside.  Will the hostages or the gunmen survive the night or will the hotel be blown apart?  It’s non-stop action set over a very short time frame.

Comparison: Tom Cain, Jake Arnott, Val Mcdermid

Siege by Simon Kernick

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?


'Simon Kernick writes with his foot pressed hard on the pedal. Hang on tight!' - Harlan Coben

'Simon Kernick uses every trick in the book to keep the action breakneck.' - Time Out

About the Author

Simon Kernick

Simon Kernick was our Guest Editor in February 2010 - click here - to see the books that inspired his writing.


Simon Kernick is one of Britain's most exciting new thriller writers. He arrived on the scene with his highly acclaimed debut novel The Business of Dying, and his big breakthrough came with his novel Relentless which became the bestselling thriller of 2007. Simon's research is what makes his thrillers so authentic. He talks both on and off the record to members of Special Branch, the Anti-Terrorist Branch and the Serious and Organised Crime Agency, so he gets to hear first hand what actually happens in the dark and murky underbelly of UK crime.
