'Compelling . . . almost Dickensian' The Times

'The best thriller writer in the world' Daily Telegraph

*****

Jonas Merrick. At MI5 they call him 'the eternal flame', because he never goes out. Never goes undercover, or on surveillance, or kicking down doors. If he's studying a map, he's probably planning his caravan holiday.

But what the hot-shots fail to notice in Jonas is a steely concentration, a ruthless ability to find the enemy who hides in plain sight like a submerged crocodile, waiting for prey.

Cameron Jilkes. A young man from a broken background, trained as a Jihadi in the harshest theatre of war. Coming ashore near Dover, he plans to live unnoticed, before unleashing a terrifying strike.

And this time, Jonas Merrick must go out - to hunt the crocodile himself.

Featuring a chapter from the new Jonas Merrick novel The Foot Soldiers, publishing in 2022

MEDIA REVIEWS

He has never lost his journalist's eye for the stories behind the news - The Sunday Times

Compelling novel . . . Seymour's feel for the Kent landscape and his realisation of minor characters, such as Cameron's heart-hardened mother, are almost Dickensian - The Times

Another fine spy story with an offbeat protagonist. - Peterborough Telegraph

The three British masters of suspense, Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, and John le Carre, have been joined by a fourth - Gerald Seymour - The New York Times

This book is largely based on the character Jonas... More

“Long-winded and boring.”

Long-winded and boring.

It’s the first book I’ve read by Gerald Seymour. I chose the book because I’ve heard so much about his previous writing. Unfortunately, the book left me underwhelmed.

It starts with Jonas... More
