May your spirit never stop soaring. Prologue When his girlfriend greeted him at the door dressed only in a T-shirt and thong, then kissed him hard on the mouth without a word before pulling him into her ground-floor bedroom, she was so worked up she didn't even notice that he was wearing gloves.

It was dark in the room, and her mouth felt bone dry. She wondered how long she'd been out. Without a watch it was difficult to tell, but it was a while. Half an hour, something like that. her eyes, swung her legs off the bed and remembered that she'd been very close to getting the chain free from the wall. And then she heard a loud bang. It was the sound of the front door shutting. She grabbed the chain with both hands, closed her eyes and pulled as hard as she could

“We’ve got your daughter.”It’s evening, you’re back late from work—and the house is in darkness. You step inside, and the phone rings. You answer it—and your world is turned upside down. Your fourteen-year-old daughter has been taken, and her kidnappers want half a million pounds in cash. They give you 48 hours to raise the money. If you call the police, she will die. Trying desperately to remain calm, you realize that your husband—the man you married two years ago—is also missing. But he can’t be involved in your daughter’s abduction. Or can he? As the nightmare unravels, you can be certain of only two things: that you will do anything to get your daughter back alive— and that time is running out.From the Paperback edition.

The first 5 chapters of this book were slow. Several times I considered not finishing this book. But I have always felt a person should give a book at least 3 chapters before deciding to stop reading. I'm glad I went further than 3 chapters. I've finished the first book and I like it well enough to go on to the second in the Dennis Milne series.
I have to say that I'm partial to British novelists, so I was eager to read THE BUSINESS OF DYING by Britain's "Hottest Young Crime Talent" Simon Kernick. The book did live up to the hype, sort of, and was entertaining. The previous reviewers have already said more about the main character and the plot than I can add, so I'll just give my reasons for the 4 star rating (actually, it should be 3.5 stars). While I liked the character of DS Dennis Milne a lot, a few things that popped up in the book didn't sit well with me. First off, I don't like characters who wake up in the middle of the night breathing heavily and sweating after experiencing a nightmare and then proceed to tell the reader, in great detail, about their frightening dream. Somehow the author is attempting to give the reader a hint that there was a deep psychological reason for the dream being planted in the character's head that will ratchet up the tension. Generally, the dreams are usually overly detailed and totally unlike any dreams I've ever had that made absolutely no sense to me when I woke up. Secondly, Kernick reveals the identity of the "Bad Guy" about half-way thru the book in a rather transparent way, no doubt hoping the reader won't remember how the victims were killed or who the real murderer was until the end of the story when the reader suddenly gets it and says, "Hey! So THAT'S who it was!!" Thirdly, DS Milne is a killer for hire so he shouldn't be squeamish when he sees some blood. For some reason he becomes queasy after helping another guy murder someone and almost throws up when the victim's blood pours out by the litre. OK...So maybe I wasn't as impressed with this "hot" debut novel as some others. It's just that maybe Mr. Kernick needs a better editor and should have spent a little more time revising his book. I will say it wasn't a bad book, just not as good as I hoped it would be. Perhaps the sequel, A GOOD DAY TO DIE, that I ordered from amazon.com will be better. I hope so.
Oh my god this is one excellent debut novel
Dennis Milne is complex character sometimes loveable but a lot of the time repreneshable just don't know what to make of the guy
It's very detailed which shows that the author researched the police and their ways of thinking and of carry procedures out in particularly well
As described and good read!
Enjoyed....but not overjoyed? I'd like to see what the next novel looks like now that the author has broken the ice.
Different angle to a police procedural.Fast paced and unexpected. And not always liking or admiring the principal character. Great read!
Thrilling, surprising and fascinating from the first page until the last one ! I'm now addicted to Simon Kernick's books !
Excellent book, I couldn't put it down!! I carnt wait to read the next book. Simon Kernick tells a great story!
