What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Captivating"

    Just as good second time around - excellent character portrayal, background information and fast moving story.

    "It's like deja vu all over again!"

    I normally really enjoy GS' books, in fact Vagabond was my favourite book of 2015, but this was a very poor follow on.
    The plot was slow to get going, and the main characters felt familiar, as if they'd been recycled from his earlier work. The background information on the mafia immediately reminded me of " The Collaborator"
    The weak story wasn't helped by a tendency to keep going back over earlier parts of the story and to regularly include some pointless lists of places which both combined to give the feeling of an author filling up a word count.
    Finally the narration left a lot to be desired, some of the character voices were straight out of " Allo, Allo"
    In the final major scene at the mafia boss's house, the police conduct a cursory search then just leave, which didn't feel credible, and gave an impression of hurried plot writing
    This definitely isn't GS at the top of his game. Obviously he's getting on a bit now, but I hope he does write another book and gets some of his previous great form back, as this isn't a worthy book for him to bow out on.

    "contrived"

    Well written as per usual, plot seemed a bit forced. Rather than flowing like usual with this author.
