Who will survive? The new bestseller from the master of the race-against-time thriller.

LONDON. THE STANHOPE HOTEL, PARK LANE. 16.00 A normal afternoon.

THE MANAGER
Newly engaged Elena Serenko has just made the life-changing decision to quit her job and start a new life in Australia.

THE GUESTS
Upstairs, a young woman waits for her lover; a visiting family prepare for an evening out; and a sick man contemplates his own mortality.

THE ASSASSIN
High up amongst the penthouse suites, a skilled and dangerous killer is hunting a quarry who’s eluded him for far too long.

THE SIEGE
What none of them know is that a group of ruthless gunmen are about to burst into the Stanhope, shooting indiscriminately, and seizing hostages.

As darkness falls and the gunmen become increasingly violent, only one thing matters. Who will survive?

Reviews

From the first line, Kernick knows how to get a thriller shifting, and he doesn't let up until the very last ... he puts a London hotel under siege, to brilliantly dramatic effect.

Daily Mirror

The author is one of Britain’s top thriller writers and his latest yarn is another page turner – pacy, violent and gripping

The Sun

A murder-a-minute gallop which successfully relies on sheer pace.

Daily Telegraph

A gripping read with a rich cast of nicely crafted characters and a clever plot - or two - that comes together in a decidedly satisfactory ending.

The Times

Excellent at police and intelligence detail … expertly plotted … fast, furious and professional

Daily Mail

The master of the race-against-time thriller has pulled off another cracker with this tense tale of London under terrorist attack … it’s great, fast moving fun.

Sunday Mirror

In Siege [Kernick] has upped his game considerably ... Nail-bitingly tense, Siege is genuinely unputdownable.

Irish Independent

You won't read a more exciting thriller this year.
