Sarah Broadhurst's view...
I don’t think that Gerald Seymour’s plot-driven thrillers have wavered in their excellence since he started with Harry’s Game and The Glory Boys, but somewhere along his distinguished career he seemed to go out of fashion. Not any more, he is now a ‘must read’ in the spy-thriller area. As an ex-reporter from ITV News, he is always topical and has the sort of authenticity that Frederick Forsyth brings to the genre. This is Al Qaeda based with determined, dangerous men pursued by equally determined, dangerous men. It’s atmospheric, taut, pacy and seriously good stuff. I rate him very highly.
Comparisons: Frederick Forsyth, Robert Ludlum, John Le Carré.

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
The Unknown Soldier by Gerald Seymour
Hidden in the world’s greatest desert a tiny caravan of fugitives and camels inches towards its goal. It is a place where only the strongest and most determined men will survive. In the caravan one man stands out. His strength, self-imposed discipline and leadership mark him. He is an Outsider whose past is blanked from his memory. And his loyalty to the leadership is total. Searching for him in the limitless dunes are American and British experts in counter-terrorism with a full range of sophisticated electronics at hand. Hunting him from above is the unmanned Predator aircraft, invisible in the cloudless skies, carrying the Hellfire missiles. But he is no easy prey.
If they fail to find and kill him, if he reaches his family and receives his orders, the Outsider will disappear again, before re-emerging in a teeming western city with a suitcase that will wreak havoc, mass murder when it is detonated…
