The Final Minute: Simon Kernick Review

The Final Minute

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a fast paced action thriller, with a high body count and an intriguing plotline.

The main character Matt Barron has amnesia and we follow him as he races against time trying to restore his memory so that he can piece his life back together. Matt's efforts to do this are hampered by the fact that several thugs and hitmen keep kidnapping and then torturing him to find out "where the bodies are".

Without any memory of his friends or family, Matt's only hope is to convince a private detective called Tina Boyd to help him and both expose the people who are after him and help get his life back.

I didn't realise when I started reading this novel that it was part of a series. I would recommend reading Simon Kernick's earlier books if possible before getting to this one as I think it would help to undestand the character's actions better.

However, I really enjoyed following the fast paced novel of this story and look forward to reading more of Simon Kernick's work.
