An epic novel of high courage and low cunning, of life and death in the moral maze of the post-9/11 world. Gerald Seymour expertly explores the moral compromises of the secret world upon which we rely for our everyday security - and the amazing reserves of courage which ordinary people can find in extraordinary circumstances.

Synopsis

A Deniable Death by Gerald Seymour

Two men who hate each other are committed to working together on a job far more dangerous than they knew when they signed up.These men are surveillance experts, lying in a mosquito-infested Iranian marsh for days, part of a huge international operation designed to kill a celebrated maker of the roadside bombs which kill so many British soldiers.And if things to wrong, as far as Her Majesty's Government is concerned, their part in the plot is totally deniable.

Reviews

'Gerald Seymour is the grand-master of the contemporary thriller and Deniable Death is his greatest work yet. Gripping, revealing and meticulously researched, this is a page-turning masterpiece that will literally leave you breathless.'
Major Chris Hunter, author of Extreme Risk

'After 28 novels, Seymour's empathy for those he ensnares in his moral minefields remains movingly even-handed.'
Daily Telegraph

'gripping thriller'
Sun

'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

'With Seymour, not only do you get a cracking story deftly told, but you also feel you are learning something.'
Birmingham Press

'[Seymour's latest story] doesn't disappoint'
Oxford Mail

'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

'riveting stuff'
Manly Daily

'In a day when shop-worn plots in the disguise of well-written books are doing the rounds, The Dealer and the Dead comes as a refreshing, breathtaking story that keeps you gripped right till the very end.' -- Indian Express

'The Dealer and the Dead displays his usual ability to concoct a tightly controlled plot that is cleverly engineered ... steadily crafted into a compelling tale ... Another first-class thriller from the always reliable Seymour.' -- Canberra Times

'A tense thriller.'
Choice
