5.0 out of 5 stars SEYMOUR DOES IT AGAIN, 7 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Outsiders (Kindle Edition)
Each new Gerald Seymour novel is akin to receiving an annual visit from an old and cherished friend: you know you are about to be entertained - and even educated - without once having your intelligence insulted. Set on Spain's Costa del Sol, the plot revolves around the brutal murder some years previously of a young British Intelligence agent by Russian criminals. Far from shrugging her shoulders and putting it all down to experience, however, his boss - a mavellous creation, a cigarillo-smoking, tell-it-like-it-is woman from the South Wales Valleys - is determined that his demise will not go unavenged, no matter how long it takes. As with all of Seymour's novels, the characters - even the minor ones - are wonderfully drawn, and miles away fron the cardboard cut-outs that infest too many thrillers these days. Moments of startling violence punctuate the gripping story, and one is left feeling thoroughly satisfied but with the vague unease that invariably accompanies a visit from this particular "old friend" - namely, how plausible it all is.
