Simon Kernick - Pay Back

reviewed live on bookshow by Brian Lowen on 6th Feb 2014  

Another really excellent thriller from the pen of SK.

The story is full of fast-paced action and features Detective Inspector Tina Boyd and her old adversary, Paul Wise, the big time crook who Tina has been pursuing for several years – and several books.

The Police seem to have given up hope of ever bring him to justice as he fled the country a few years back, but Tina is determined to track him down as he was responsible for the death of her fiancé.

Tina takes two weeks leave and sets off to the Phillippines on her personal manhunt, enlisting the help of Desmond Milne, an ex-cop turned hit man who is actually in the payroll of one of Paul Wise’s henchman and has been given the contract to eliminate Tina, but changes sides when he meets her.

They have a series of adventures in Manilla before the final dramatic and explosive conclusion.

A good page turner as there is lots of action in this good thriller.
