Product Description

By the author who "isn't just abreast of the headlines, [but] ahead of them" (The Washington Post), this is a novel at once international and personal --and altogether riveting. Malachy Kitchen is an intelligence officer in Iraq. accused of cowardice, he becomes a recluse in a drug-infested housing project back home. But the mugging of an elderly widow draws him into the fight --his target is the network of substance dealers, and at their head is Ricky Capel. untouchable up to now, Capel will have to confront an enemy more driven than any he has so far outwitted.

"Suspense master Seymour dazzles with commanding language and meticulous detail." --Entertainment Weekly

"Not since the arrival of John le Carre has the emergence of an international suspense novelist been as stunning as that of Gerald Seymour." --Los Angeles Times

"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

AUTHORBIOGerald Seymour spent fifteen years as an international television news reporter, specializing in the subject of terrorism. His first novel was the acclaimed Harry's Game. He has since written twenty-four more novels, six of which have been filmed for television.
