Product Description

Hard on the heels of last year's brilliant The Collaborator comes this multilayered novel of espionage and crime. In 1992, after being fired from a top secret nuclear facility, a KGB operative buried a nuclear suitcase--a dirty bomb. Sixteen years later he has found a buyer. Traveling with the buyer is an undercover agent, working for MI6. But as their shadowy journey begins, it becomes clear that their man is beginning to suffer 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 a racing thriller to keep you reading late into the night.

Praise for the work of Gerald Seymour:
"Three British masters of suspense, Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, and John le Carré, have been joined by a fourth: Gerald Seymour." -- The 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

"Seymour, who is classed with espionage luminaries like Ambler and le Carre, has crafted a convoluted plot and a host of complex and exquisitely tormented characters, but it's his focus on human frailty that makes Timebomb a winner." --Booklist

"Intricately crafted and clocklike in its controlled release of psychological and geopolitical tension."--Kirkus Reviews

GERALD SEYMOUR spent fifteen years as an international television news reporter, covering Vietnam and the Middle East and specializing in terrorism. He is the author of the acclaimed thriller Harry's Game and many other books, six of which have been filmed.
