9780340918920: Dealer and the Dead

The arms dealer betrayed them. Now the survivors want revenge.SOMETIMES, surviving a war can almost seem worse than dying in it. In a Croatian village near Vukovar, no one who survived will ever forget the night they waited for the weapons they needed to make a last-ditch fight against the advancing Serbs. The promised delivery never came, and the village was overrun. Eighteen years later, a body is unearthed from a field, and with it the identity of the arms dealer who betrayed them. Now the villagers can plot their revenge. In leafy England, arms dealer Harvey Gillott regards himself as a man of his word. There is only one blemish on his record, and that was long ago. But Gillott, his family, his friends and his enemies are about to be pitched into a sequence of events that will unfold across Europe with breath-taking drama and almost biblical power. Harvey Gillott is about to find out what happens when the hand of the past suddenly reaches out to the present - and it's holding a gun.

About the Author:

Gerald Seymour was a reporter at ITN for fifteen years. He covered events in Vietnam, Borneo, Aden, the Munich Olympics, Israel and Northern Ireland. He has been a full-time writer since 1978. Seymour's first novel was the acclaimed thriller Harry's Game, set in Belfast, and since then six of his thrillers have been filmed for television in the UK and US. The Dealer and the Dead is Seymour's twenty-sixth novel.

Review:

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 gold, 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 In a class of his own The Times on THE WAITING TIME A dense, intensely satisfying thriller from one of the modern masters of the craft, Seymour's latest novel will remind the world just how phenomenally accomplished a thriller writer he is. Daily Mail on THE COLLABORATOR A simmering, multilayered account of the past catching up to the present ... Those who are drawn to densely woven, slowly unfolding plots and thoughtful writing will rate this book a winner. Decades after establishing himself as a master of British spy fiction with Harry's Game, Seymour shows no signs of slowing down or losing relevance. Kirkus Seymour loves detail, and THE DEALER AND THE DEAD serves it up brilliantly. He takes readers inside the minds and lives of a baker's dozen characters ... The Bosnian conflict was spectacularly cruel. Two decades on, it continues to spur headlines and to provide potent plotlines for novelists. It's fitting that Seymour, one of the finest contemporary espionage novelists, shines his unique light on it. Booklist Starred Review A war crime propels this stellar thriller ... How Seymour develops [his] characters and manipulates them is testament to his talent and skill. Publishers Weekly Starred Review

Descripción Hodder. 1 Paperback(s), 2010. soft. Estado de conservación: New. In a moonlit field near the Serbian border, Croatian villagers waited in vain for a shipment of antitank weapons—the only thing that would have given them a fighting chance against the invading Serbs. Not until 18 years later would the survivors of the resulting slaughter learn the identity of the arms dealer who betrayed them. For Harvey Gillot, who regards himself as a man of his word, there has been only one blemish on his record, and it was a long time ago. But in this gripping 27th thriller from former broadcast journalist Gerald Seymour, the past is reaching across Europe to Gillot's house in leafy England, and its vengeance will ensnare his family, his friends, and his enemies alike."Seymour tells the story of a tiny Croatian village whose inhabitants held out for weeks against a much larger, better-armed force of Serbian paramilitaries during the Bosnian War. The villagers knew survival depended on getting antitank rockets, and they pooled everything they owned to buy them from an arms merchant. But the weapons were never delivered, and the Serbs committed atrocities that survivors have been waiting two decades to avenge. They learn the name of the arms dealer who betrayed them. Once again, they pool everything they own, this time to hire a hit man. Seymour loves detail, and The Dealer and the Dead serves it up brilliantly. He takes readers inside the minds and lives of a baker's dozen characters, from villagers and the British arms merchant to a London cop whose 'Flying Squad' is tasked with stopping contract killings, to a driven woman who tracks the international arms trade for an NGO, and a forensic scientist who has been unearthing Croatian victims for 20 years. The Bosnian conflict was spectacularly cruel. Two decades on, it continues to spur headlines and to provide potent plotlines for novelists. It's fitting that Seymour, one of the finest contemporary espionage novelists, shines his unique light on it."—Booklist (starred review) 458. Nº de ref. de la librería 70091
