A Quick Five #3 - Simon Kernick

Simon Kernick, the latest in a wave of wonderful new authors from the UK, and one of the nicest guys I've met.

What's the latest book you've read?

The Ruins by Scott Smith, author of A Simple Plan. Very very good.

What's you're latest book and why should people read it?

Relentless. It's a race against time thriller. You should read it because it's fast, it's furious and there are enough twists to keep even the biggest crime buffs
happy (honest!)

What's coolest thing you did in the last 6 months?

Scuba dived a hundred foot down in the Red Sea to the wreck of a Second World War British cargo ship. I went in through the hole created by the bomb
which sank it and then swam all the way through it, stopping to sit in the driver's seat of an armoured jeep that's still parked upright, along with some
motorbikes and heavy machine guns, in the hold. On the way back to shore in the dive boat, one of the crew caught a five foot tuna. Now how cool is that?

What are you doing this weekend?

Believe it or not, writing. I'm going hell for leather on my current book, the sequel to RELENTLESS, which is scheduled for release next summer, At the
moment, I'm a bit behind.

What's next for Simon Kernick?

A long sleep.
