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

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.

“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
