Product Description

Hard on the heels of last year’s brilliant thriller, The Collaborator, comes this excellent multilayered thriller. In 1992, after being fired from a top-secret nuclear facility, a top KGB man buried a nuclear suitcase. Sixteen years later he has found a buyer for it. Traveling with the buyer is an undercover policeman, working for MI6. But as their shadowy journey begins, it becomes clear to a top psychiatrist that their man may be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome and the whole operation is very likely to be thrown into jeopardy. Displaying a fast-paced narrative and an in-depth knowledge of international politics, Timebomb is thrilling Seymour to keep a reader up late into the night.

"Three British masters of suspense, Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, and John le Carré, have been joined by a fourth—Gerald Seymour." —New York Times

"A richly imagined novel that bristles with authenticity ...a realistic portrait of a side of Naples that tourists rarely see." —Washington Post

Gerald Seymour spent 15 years as an international television news reporter with ITN specializing in the subject of terrorism. His first novel was the acclaimed thriller Harry’s Game. He has since written 24 novels, six of which have been filmed for television.
