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...
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.
