LoveReading Expert Review of Harry's Game

Gerald Seymour is one of our greatest thriller writers - a reputation established with his first novel, Harry's Game, published in 1975 and still as fresh, vibrant and exciting 40 years later. Set in Belfast at the height of the troubles, Harry Brown, an Ulsterman and British army officer is sent undercover as a catholic merchant seaman to track down the killer of a Cabinet minister gunned down in front of his family. The characters are richly drawn and from the assassin's nervous movements that open the book to its tense tumultuous end it proves itself one of the best thrillers ever written.

Harry's Game Synopsis

A British cabinet minister is gunned down on a London street by an IRA assassin. In the wake of national outcry, the authorities must find the hitman. But the trail is long cold, the killer gone to ground in Belfast, and they must resort to more unorthodox methods to unearth him. Ill prepared and poorly briefed, undercover agent Harry Brown is sent into the heart of enemy territory to infiltrate the terrorists. But when it is a race against the clock, mistakes are made and corners cut.
