Publisher's Summary

Eighteen years after the barbarous war with the Serbs that tore their communities apart, a group of Croatian villagers discover the identity of the Englishman who they believe betrayed them by reneging on a deal to supply arms. With revenge in sight at last, they hire a professional killer from London to track him down... but is the story as simple as they think?


What the Critics Say

"A war crime propels this stellar thriller from Edgar-finalist Seymour…. How Seymour develops these characters and manipulates them until they all end up in Vukovar is a testament to his talent and skill." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Seymour loves detail, and The Dealer and the Dead serves it up brilliantly…. [The Bosnian conflict] continues to spur headlines and to provide potent plotlines for novelists. It’s fitting that Seymour, one of the finest contemporary espionage novelists, shines his unique light on it." ( Booklist)
"Crisp, taut and contemporary, by a stylish writer." ( The Observer UK)

Completely engrossing, great character development and a Shakespearian collection of characters and narrative. One of the best thrillers I have listened to in years.

Almost there

Good narration and a great basic story line. Problem was it all fell apart at the end! GS's descriptive powers are undiminished and his knowledge of the 'process' has to be commended. Yes you get into the characters but well the best way I can think is to say that I felt I was in a play and not in real life. OK?
