Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The great thriller writer returns to Northern Ireland, the setting of his first novel, Harry’s Game, for this, his thirtieth book. He is ace and once hooked you’ve got lots to indulge in to find your favourite. Here we have a disillusioned army intelligence officer and his trusted side-kick ‘retired’ in Northern France when his ex-MI5 boss needs his particular expertise to expose an Irish deal. It is all very dangerous, very tense and Seymour writes very well indeed.

July 2014 Book of the Month.

Synopsis

Vagabond by Gerald Seymour

It was a dirty job in a dirty war. Danny Curnow, known in the army family by his call sign, Vagabond, ran agents, informers. Played God with their lives and their deaths, and was the best at his job - and he quit when the stress overwhelmed him. Now he lives in quiet isolation and works as a guide to tourists visiting the monuments and cemeteries of an earlier, simpler, conflict on Normandy's D-Day beaches. Until the call comes from an old boss, Bentinick. Violence in Northern Ireland is on the rise again. Weapons are needed for a new campaign. Gaby Davies of MI5, sparky and ambitious, runs the double agent Ralph Exton, who will be the supposed middle man in brokering an arms deal with a Russian contact, Timofey. The covert world of deception and betrayal was close to destroying Danny across the Irish Sea. Fifteen years later the stakes are higher, the risks greater, and there is an added agenda on the table. If he wants to survive, Danny will have to prove, to himself, that he has not softened, that he is as hard and ruthless as before.
