A Deniable Death

Author(s): Gerald Seymour

Fiction

Two men who hate each other are committed to working together on a job far more dangerous than they knew when they signed up.These men are surveillance experts, lying in a mosquito-infested Iranian marsh for days, part of a huge international operation designed to kill a celebrated maker of the roadside bombs which kill so many British soldiers.And if things to wrong, as far as Her Majesty's Government is concerned, their part in the plot is totally deniable.Gerald Seymour expertly explores the moral compromises of the secret world upon which we rely for our everyday security - and the amazing reserves of courage which ordinary people can find in extraordinary circumstances.

'Gerald Seymour is the grand-master of the contemporary thriller and Deniable Death is his greatest work yet. Gripping, revealing and meticulously researched, this is a page-turning masterpiece that will literally leave you breathless.' -- Major Chris Hunter, author of Extreme Risk 'After 28 novels, Seymour's empathy for those he ensnares in his moral minefields remains movingly even-handed.' -- Daily Telegraph 'gripping thriller' -- Sun Seymour [is] incapable of creating a two-dimensional character ... The ending is brilliantly orchestrated. -- The Times 20100718 'Crisp, taut and contemporary, by a stylish writer.' -- Rachel Redford, the Observer 20100808 'Discerning thriller readers can safely say that the best practitioner currently working in the UK is the veteran Seymour.

Another first-class thriller from the always reliable Seymour. -- Canberra Times 20100824 'A tense thriller.' -- Choice 20100824 'In a class of his own' -- The Times on THE WAITING TIME 20100824 'A dense, intensely satisfying thriller from one of the modern masters of the craft, Seymour's latest novel will remind the world just how phenomenally accomplished a thriller writer he is.' -- Daily Mail on THE COLLABORATOR 20100824 'a vividly drawn ensemble of spooks, terrorists and civilians' -- Sunday Times Books of the Year 2011 20100824 'a vividly drawn ensemble of spokes, terrorists and civilians' -- John Dugdale 20100824 'one of the most venerable names of the thriller genre, Gerald Seymour, showed that age was not withering him.' -- Independent Books of the Year 20100824
