Publisher's Summary

MI6 plan to assassinate the leading maker of IEDs - roadside bombs- as he leaves his house in Iran. But first, they need to know when he is leaving. So it is that Danny 'Badger' Baxter finds himself in Iran, lumbered with a partner he loathes, lying next to a mosquito-infested marsh, observing the house. And knowing that if they are caught, Her Majesty's Government will deny all knowledge of them.

An evocative yet sad tale of sacrifice

Very much recommend. Seymour's characters feel real and are inbuilt with the complexities, vices, emotion and doubts that drive and cripple us. It's not that the story has twists and turns that makes it so interesting. You feel with the characters at every step and just have to keep listening.

Slow burner but leads to almost unbearable tension

Be patient with this book-it is a slow burner but well worth it. The second half is almost unbearably tense. So much so that I found myself chewing my lip with anxiety as I listened.As with all the Gerald Seymour books I've listened to, his characters are so well-rounded that it's impossible not to empathise with them all - even a bomb-maker, for goodness sake. His research and understanding of his subject is as always, impeccable. I highly recommend this, especially for anyone who's ever wondered about what it's really like to be a covert operative.

Oh so boring

Well narrated, but so slow, it started to pick towards the end but by that time I'd given up...
