Eighteen years after the barbarous war with the Serbs that tore their communities apart, a group of Croatian villagers discover the identity of the Englishman who they believe betrayed them by reneging on a deal to supply arms. With revenge in sight at last, they hire a professional killer from London to track him down... but is the story as simple as they think?
"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)

Distant events brought up close and personal
Gerald Seymour is a master story teller, his heros and anti-heros so easy to identify with.
The policeman, idealism thwarted by realism, an experience I find heart-wrenching.
Yes, a cliff-hanger right up to the post-script , but it is too long for that.
The mob violence scene, and the pre planning of it, extremely chilling. In South Africa we have seen that in action, absolutely realistic.
