The Payback

The Payback - Simon Kernick Very fond of Simon Kernick as a thriller/crime writer and this does not disappoint. Yes, it has to be said there is little in the way of deep character development but what this book lacks in deep intelligent literary thought it makes up for in the ferocious action that starts on page one and does not let up until the end....so if you want to escape from the toils and tribulations of daily life...let facebook go....forget emails...switch off the telly and settle down to good old fashioned storytelling....come on you know you want to and you will not be disapponted :)) The Payback sees the pairing of Tina Boyd and Dennis Milne in a fast and exciting romp in The Phillippines, both characters are flawed and frankly appear to put very little value on life some might even say hiding a death wish but this only notches up the action for the reader. The book is brought to a great conclusion and neatly closed some of the running storylines and themes and there is an excellent little postscript from the author.
