"Once again demonstrating his ability to probe the moral murkiness of the spy trade and create an absorbingly diverse ensemble, Seymour crafts a sophisticated, reader-teasing tale." (Sunday Times on The Corporal’s Wife)
"When readers get to the nailbiting climax...they may be wondering why they should bother with any other thriller writer." (Independent on The Corporal’s Wife)

One of the best Seymour novels

I love this novel even though it does not appear to be everyone's cup of tea. It is a typical mix of Seymour oddball characters rather like a Le Carre novel. It was absorbing and I could not stop listening. The ending was exquisite and I did not feel that the story was stretched out. If liked me, you are a Seymour fan, give it a go.

An excellent Seymour book.

Would you consider the audio edition of No Mortal Thing to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version


Who was your favorite character and why?

Juliet - she was a strong understated powersource. In another setting she would have been a force for some other outcome.

Any additional comments?

The ending was out of character. The banker was intelligent and meticulous and would not have made a basic error which would have allowed money to be traced which caused the downfall.
