4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping Story, 17 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Corporal's Wife (Kindle Edition)
The story covers a scenario where a honey trap collects a victim, in this case a corporal in the Revolutionary Guard in Iran, whose job as the driver of a high ranking officer gives him access to high grade intelligence.

Spirited away by the British Intelligence Services, he is blackmailed into giving away Iran's secrets until he digs his toes in and refuses to co-operate any further unless his wife is "brought out" of Iran to join him. The book describes very plausibly the widespread ramfications to all connected people who remain in Iran, regardless of their innocence or guilt. The Iranian authorities are suspicious of everybody and the results catastrophic.

Gerald Seymour's writing is detailed with extensive research enhancing and adding colour to the events, geography and realism of this gripping tale. Nothing can be taken for granted in this book and it ducks and weaves consistently as multiple character's lives are seriously affected by the efforts of the UK government agencies to extract the Corporal's wife.

Hard to put down.
