Timebomb by Gerald Seymour
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Gerald Seymour is a master thriller writer, most famous for Harry’s Game, whose classic books are being reissued to excite a new generation. The time bomb of the title is literal as we follow a cast of characters on their journey to Sobibor where an ex-KGB officer is selling a nuclear suitcase bomb to the highest bidder. But it’s also metaphorical as Seymour delves deep into the past to Nazi brutality and the atrocities of Sobibor concentration camp and how the wounds they left are far from healed. Christopher Reich, Frederick Forsyth, Daniel Silva

Reviews

'A long, distinguished career as an ITV war reporter gives Seymour's books absolute authenticity. He knows how the nuts and bolts of undercover surveillance and terrorism work.' Guardian

'Intricately crafted and clocklike in its controlled release of psychological and geopolitical tension.' Kirkus Reviews

'[An] excellent, multi-layered novel ... The thrills and action in this fascinating cloak and dagger story pile on and the author keeps the suspense of what will happen almost until the last page.' Eurocrime
