A Deniable Death Synopsis

C.R.O.P. (Covert Rural Observation Posts) are places where men like Danny 'Badger' Baxter hide for endless, motionless hours, secretly recording criminal or terrorist activity. But now Badger has a bigger job than photographing dissident Republicans in muddy Ulster fields or Islamic extremists on rainswept Yorkshire moors.I.E.D. (Improvised Explosive Devices) are the roadside bombs which account for 80% of British casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan. MI6 have a plan to assassinate the leading maker of these weapons when he leaves his house in Iran to visit Europe. But first, they need to know when he is leaving, and where he is going. So it is that Badger finds himself on the wrong side of the Iranian border, lumbered with a partner he loathes, lying under a merciless sun in a mosquito-infested marsh, observing the house. And knowing that if they are caught, Her Majesty's Government will deny all knowledge of them. Welcome to A Deniable Death.

A Deniable Death Press Reviews

Praise for Gerald Seymour:

 

'Seymour is not one to cut corners. He does his research, thinks hard about his story and gives us richly imagined novels that bristle with authenticity.'
Washington Post on THE COLLABORATOR

 

'Seymour [is] incapable of creating a two-dimensional character ... The ending is brilliantly orchestrated.' -- The Times 

 

'Crisp, taut and contemporary, by a stylish writer.
Rachel Redford, the Observer

'Discerning thriller readers can safely say that the best practitioner currently working in the UK is the veteran Seymour. He is, quite simply, the most intelligent and accomplished in the current field ... Here, we have a typically compromised Seymour anti-hero, a masterfully organised globe-spanning narrative and a mass of highly persuasive detail. The Dealer and the Dead is Seymour firing on all cylinders, and his rivals need, once again, to look to their laurels. -- Barry Forshaw


'The final scenes are brilliantly orchestrated by Seymour, the sustained tension becoming almost unbearable ... Without doubt, The Dealer and the Dead is one of the finest thrillers to be published so far this year.'
Yorkshire Evening Post

'[Seymour's] meticulous research shines through in his latest thriller.'
Oxford Times
