Publisher's Summary

In a Croatian village near Vukovar, no one who survived will ever forget the night they waited for the weapons they needed to make a last-ditch fight against the advancing Serbs. The promised delivery never came, and the village was overrun. Eighteen years later, a body is unearthed from a field, and with it the identity of the arms dealer who betrayed them. Now the villagers can plot their revenge. In leafy England, arms dealer Harvey Gillott regards himself as a man of his word. There is only one blemish on his record, and that was long ago. But Gillott, his family, his friends and his enemies are about to be pitched into a sequence of events that will unfold across Europe with breath-taking drama and almost biblical power.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Characters I don't care about

Peopled with characters that I am never made to care about, this story becomes more of an endurance contest than something I'm engaged with and need to know the outcome of. I stopped listening about 2/3 of the way through it.

I will be requesting a refund.
