Holt, a diplomat, and Noah Crane, Israeli master-sniper, plan to walk by night into the dangerous Beqa'a Valley, where capture by the Syrian Army results in torture and death.

"Fine writing and an intricate plot so skillfully woven that every development falls believably into place" (Sunday Times)
"The finest thriller writer in the world today" (Daily Telegraph)
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
One of Seymour's best.
A word about the narration. Would have been excellent, if listening in a silent room. But I like to listen in the car, and I couldn't hear it a lot of the time. Frequently descends to a whisper.
Print I always, encapsulate books easier, but audible are good for journey's
the authenticity of the scenario as my heading implies
very easy on the ear.
honour is met by two brave men
Gripping story, good narration. Only downside is the unrealistic plot and exaggerated character especially Percy.
"Well balanced, written and read"
The narrator made a real effort.
A kind of realism as if you were there
It was written with a style of a time passed sort of Neville Shute
"A great read"
I am new to Gerald Seymour novels. This was a book that had me hooked to the end. Looking forward to the next one.
