'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

“A Curate's egg”

For me this was a potentially engaging plot spoiled by increasingly unlikely developments and an over-contrived denouement that only lacked Hercules Poirot in the final scene. The characters' dialogue often seems... More
