Die Alone




The new high-octane thriller from Sunday Times bestselling author Simon Kernick

________________________ "Simon Kernick is an absolute master of the adrenaline-fuelled ride" - PETER JAMES The new high-octane thriller from Sunday Times bestselling author Simon Kernick ________________________Alastair Sheridan has it all. Wealth, good looks, a beautiful wife and children and, in the chaotic world of British politics, a real chance of becoming Prime Minister. But Alastair also has a secret. He's a serial killer with a taste for young women. Only a handful of people know what kind of monster he is, and disgraced detective Ray Mason is one of them. Awaiting trial for murder, Ray is unexpectedly broken free by armed men and given an offer: assassinate Alastair Sheridan and begin a new life abroad with a new identity. The men claim to be from MI6. They say that Sheridan is a threat to national security and needs to be neutralised. Ray knows they are not who they say they are, and that their real motives are far darker. The only person Ray trusts is ex-cop and former lover Tina Boyd who's keen to settle her own scores with Sheridan. With enemies on every side, only one thing is certain. No one wants them to get out alive. ________________________ "Simon Kernick is one of the most reliable purveyors of the edge-of-your-seat thriller... a more powerful adrenaline rush than an EpiPen" - JAKE KERRIDGE, SUNDAY EXPRESS "An emotionally punchy domestic noir blended with the pace and action of a high-octane thriller, WE CAN SEE YOU will keep you breathlessly on the edge of your seat, wondering which character you can trust, if any at all, until the final brilliant twist!

It’s always a pleasure to pick up the latest from Simon Kernick and once again he has delivered an exhilarating, tightly plotted and well-crafted tale. The phrase ‘page turner’ is sometimes overused, but never in this author’s case. This is a book you will not want to put down. An ex-detective seeking redemption and a corrupt, murderous politician. What’s not to like? A firecracker of a read.
