Sarah Broadhurst's view...

June 2010 Book of the Month.

A classic novel by a superb writer using all his skills of storytelling and characterisation to plunge us into the heart of the Mafia world in Naples.  It is both thrilling and emotional, a novel to remember.  I believe this author to be one of the best we have in this intelligent thriller area.

 

Comparison: John Le Carré, Henry Porter, Frederick Forsyth.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

The Collaborator by Gerald Seymour

Deadlier than the Mafia, the Camorra never forget, and never forgive. She is an Italian accountancy student in London, and her boyfriend Eddie teaches at a language school. But the prime reason Immacolata Borelli came to Britain was to look after her gangster brother, wanted for multiple murders back home in Naples. For the Borelli clan are major players in the Camorra, a crime network more close-knit and ruthless than the Sicilian Mafia. Mario Castrolami is a senior Carabinieri investigator of the Camorra, his career dedicated to destroying the corruption and violence of the clans. When Immacolata calls from London to say she is prepared to collaborate with justice - to betray her own family - he knows she is setting in motion a terrifying and unpredictable series of events. The Borellis will not lose their criminal empire without a vicious fight. They will use anything and anyone to prevent her from giving evidence against them. Even Eddie, and Eddie's life.


Reviews

'The veteran thriller writer takes the mafia on with devastating results'
Observer, Best Books of the Year 2009

'Seymour's venture into the world of the film Gomorrah is a terrific success, with memorable main charactters, typically convincing handling of police and criminal methods and a strong climax.'
John Dugdale, The Sunday Times

'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

'A propulsive, neatly structured thriller'
Guardian

'The veteran writer has rarely strayed from forging complex and innovative thrillers ... In THE COLLABORATOR, his professionalism ensures a forceful, kinetic narrative.'
Independent

'Tight writing and meticulous research ... Seymour paints the streets of Naples and their dark denizens with an artist's brush that lingers equally on the grime, the glitter and the blood'

Peter Millar, The Times
