The Final Minute (Tina Boyd #7) by Simon Kernick

Matt has lived in peace during his months of convalescence, staying in a remote house in the middle of nowhere with a sister he can’t remember. When his memory is taken by a terrible car accident Matt is left feeling empty and confused, but a reoccurring dream tells him that things aren’t quite what they seem. He’s soon on the run with the most dangerous people chasing him, and the one thing he knows about himself is that he too is dangerous.

This is a brilliant addition to the thriller genre. I haven’t read the rest of the series and only picked this book up in audio version because it was on offer, but I’m glad I dipped into the series. The plot was intricate with plenty of meat to keep the suspense going, and the writing was easy and flowed smoothly. The characters were realistic, three-dimensional, and interesting. I liked Matt’s character because he made me laugh: he’s on the run and people are trying to shoot him, but he takes a moment to acknowledge that ‘he fancied her’. Tina’s character wasn’t fun; she was a very serious adrenaline junkie. I think, to have a full appreciation of her character, maybe I should start at the beginning of the series, but it does work well as a standalone book.
