After a distinguished early career as an ITN correspondent reporting on such world events as the Irish Troubles, the Vietnam War, the Munich Olympics Massacre and the growth of international terrorism, Gerald Seymour made an explosive literary debut with Harry’s Game. Forty years on from that now classic thriller, he continues to set readers’ pulses racing with his fast-moving and authentic tales of espionage and undercover action. His latest, No Mortal Thing, plunges its unsuspecting English hero into the midst of the tangled Europe-wide fight against organised crime and, as always, combines nail-biting suspense with a realism, plausibility and political insight rare in the genre.

 

No Mortal Thing is novel of relentless power and mounting suspense, a brilliant portrayal of organised crime in Europe and the under-resourced men and women who fight it and confirms Gerald Seymour as one of our most brilliant thriller-writers.
