The Payback | [Simon Kernick]

The Payback

Dennis Milne is a man with a past, and a past that involves murder. A former cop, he’s earned his living killing the bad guys – drug-dealers, corrupt business men - people who, in his opinion, deserve to die. For the past two days, he’s been in Manila, waiting for his next target: a young woman who’s made herself some poor life-choices, and some even worse enemies. DI Tina Boyd is a woman on a mission. Tough, spiky and determined, she’s looking for the man she holds responsible for the death of her lover.

Publisher's Summary

Dennis Milne is a man with a past, and a past that involves murder. A former cop, he’s earned his living killing the bad guys – drug-dealers, corrupt business men - people who, in his opinion, deserve to die. For the past two days, he’s been in Manila, waiting for his next target: a young woman who’s made herself some poor life-choices, and some even worse enemies. DI Tina Boyd is a woman on a mission.

Tough, spiky and determined, she’s looking for the man she holds responsible for the death of her lover. She knows he’s ruthless. She knows he’s dangerous. But he’s in Manila, and she’s determined to find and kill him – before he kills her. Two cops with pasts that haunt them - and a present that could see them both dead. They are about to meet. And when they do, it’s payback time…

    "Action all the time, no boring parts."
    Would you listen to The Payback again? Why?

    Not nowadays but probably after several years.


    What other book might you compare The Payback to and why?

    My previous Simon Kernick book.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Thornley – was your favorite?

    Paul Thornley is, without any doubth, the very best performer at least in my humble opinion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did it in ten one hour parts during daily long walks.


    Any additional comments?

    This Kernick/Thornley co-operation is a great entertainment though is has some strange details.

    The research and realism!

    Paul Thornley was one of the first narrators I was forced to write a negative review of, now I don't read a book unless its narrated by him! He makes the book....

    "Great for a good story!"

    Couldn't wait to get back to it! I really liked the characters and like that you can't help but feel for a baddie and feel hatred for the 'real' baddie! Good am going to get another - like this narrator too!
