The Final Minute Synopsis

Featuring Simon Kernick's maverick detective, Tina Boyd, this is the gripping new race-against-time thriller by the best-selling author of Relentless, The Last 10 Seconds and Stay Alive. 'It's night, and I'm in a strange house. The lights are on, and I'm standing outside a half-open door. Feeling a terrible sense of forboding, I walk slowly inside. And then I see her. A woman lying sprawled across a huge double bed. She's dead. There's blood everywhere. And the most terrifying thing of all is that I think her killer might be me...' A traumatic car-crash. A man with no memory, haunted by nightmares. When the past comes calling in the most terrifying way imaginable, Matt Barron is forced to turn to the one person who can help. Ex Met cop, turned private detective, Tina Boyd. Soon they are both on the run...

The Good Book Guide Review

Simon Kernick has long been recognised for energising the British thriller, reminding readers that American writers have no monopoly on uncompromising, stripped-to-the-bone crime narratives such as the pacy Target. Kernick thrillers such as The Business of Dying, the first in his bestselling sequence of London-based novels, are crammed full of fresh and original touches, and The Final Minute continues the trajectory. The troubled protagonist, Matt, has a tangled past which is revealed as the book progresses – his amnesia having wiped out his memory. Tina, a former detective on one of the Met’s Murder Investigation Teams, is an ally – one he sorely needs.
