Publisher's Summary

London is under attack.

People are dead. Many more lives hang in the balance as a group of highly trained gunmen storm the historic Lanchester Hotel on Park Lane.

The gunmen have given the government just five hours to meet their demands before they blow up the building. Shots ring out. Some guests panic. Others text their loved ones. Still more try to escape. All are united by one thing: fear for their lives. All - except one man who has information so dangerous that it must be kept safe - at any price.

Darkness falls. The gunmen become increasingly violent. One question is in everybody's minds. Will they survive the night?

What the Critics Say

“The writing in Siege is tight and fast-paced, and the action comes thick and fast from the very first line, if you’re up for a bit of action, there’s plenty of excitement to be found here.” (Trucking News)

    "Thriller to the end"

    Great book well read long but really worth the effort to listen to it. I got to the stage when I just could not stop listening. This would be a wonderful book for a long and boring flight or train journey. The plot is well constructed and moves along at a good pace - the characters are beautifully crafted. The twist at the end is good. Happy listening.

    "Absorbing & Fast Plot"

    Siege is a great book with a good plot, believable 3 dimensional characters and a fast pace.



    The author gets the readers immediate attention and holds it throughout the book, which is full of intrigue, action and emotion that results in real concern for the characters.



    Firstly the hostages: It is the first time I have been rooting for a man I know has murdered 3 people, without knowing why! The book draws you into the feelings and rational of the hostage's, explaining why they take the actions they do. Normal people caught up in extraordinary circumstances.



    The Rescuers: An insight in to the pressures on police, armed forces and negotiators that has you shouting advice at the characters.



    The Perpetrators: A chance to read the views of those responsible.



    Great book - enjoy

    "Book club surprise"

    Had to read one of this Authors books for my book club and I chose this one. A first for me but will not be the last.

    A good thriller that is bang up to date.

    "run of the mill thriller"

    It was hard to say whether i enjoyed this or not as i found it a run of the mill, linear and predictable thriller book and not in the same league as a Tom Clancy or Utopia by Lincoln Child. It was formulaic to the point where i just wanted to skip to the end. If you like James Patterson then it is in a similiar vein and will probably enjoy this too, otherwise skip it and use your credit elsewhere.

    "good thriller"

    Looking at the negative reviews on this book I ask myself were we dealing with the same story. Of course it's nonsense - it's entertainment - a way of passing the time in an enjoyable manner. And I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Tightly paced, admittedly cliched characters and a plotline which stretches credulity but, one of those stories you can't wait to see what happens next. Oh yes - and very good narration.

    "Really Not Very Good"

    I wished I'd believed the other person who gave this a poor review as they were absolutely right. It's not a great story. It's not very well written. The narrator's style quickly becomes irritating. The plot is really Die Hard with a few wrinkles. I also should have also remembered that I didn't enjoy Relentless when I read that. No more Simon Kernick for me.

    "Cracking Listen."

    Really enjoyed this book. Made the drive to and from work a pleasure. Even found myself driving slower so I could listen to more. Highly recommended.

    "brilliant"

    This book is a fantastic story with more than enough twists and turns to keep you guessing all the way. It is read with an intensity that suits the plot.
    Excellent
