• "Simon Kernick may be a new kid on the block but he certainly knows how to crank up the suspense and deliver a kick in the gut when it's needed. A Good Day To Die is a terrific novel. Put this one at the top of your list; it will keep you up well into the night"

    Peter Robinson
  • "A Good Day To Die is everything we have come to expect from Kernick - one of the best young crime writers to have emerged in the past five years. It's a fast-paced yet deeply moral thriller with a thoughtful protagonist who never mistakes himself for a hero"

    Laura Lippman
  • "Kernick is excellent at capturing the mean streets where crack deals go down and tourists don't linger"

    Daily Mail
  • "Kernick has produced a first-rate series of contemporary hard-bolied London thrillers, with ... a sympathetic character in Milne"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "Simon Kernick writes with his foot pressed hard on the pedal. Hang on tight!"

    Harlan Coben
