Summary

Farideh's husband is a corporal in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, entrapped by MI6 for interrogation. His job as a driver to a top general has left him with potentially valuable knowledge, but he won't talk unless Farideh is brought out of Iran.

Poor narration and not one of Seymour's best

Not one of GS's best books and the narrator's style doesn't help. He doesn't leave a pause when the story moves from one plot line to another which can be confusing. The daftest little niggle was casevac, should be pronounced cas-e-vac not like some form of Hoover for a portmanteau!
If you want the author at his best try Vagabond instead.
