About the Author

Gerald Seymour spent fifteen years as an international television news reporter with ITN, covering Vietnam and the Middle East, and specialising in the subject of terrorism across the world. Seymour was on the streets of Londonderry on the afternoon of Bloody Sunday, and was a witness to the massacre of Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics. Gerald Seymour exploded onto the literary scene with the massive bestseller Harry's Game, that has since been picked by the Sunday Times as one of the 100 best thrillers written since 1945. He has been a full-time writer since 1978, and six of his novels have been filmed for television in the UK and US. The Foot Soldiers is his thirty-eighth novel.


A cleverly nuanced climax in which tables are unexpectedly turned more than once . . . marks this as a novel of real quality. Top brass * The Times *
Seymour's finger is always on the current socio-political pulse, and the new book is a welcome return for his curmudgeonly MI5 man Jonas Merrick * i news *
This is multi-layered spy-fi at its best, with Seymour showing that even after thirty-seven novels he has lost none of his talent for thrilling plots and creating credible and sympathetic characters, nor his journalist's eye for modern espionage tradecraft and techniques * Shots Magazine *
Supreme spy writer * Peterborough Telegraph *
If le Carre had written about spies on the front line . . . Seymour makes more than le Carre of treachery's potential impact on frontline personnel. [A] masterly novel * The Sunday Times *
There are strong echoes of George Smiley in Merrick's mild and unprepossessing manner, which disguises a razor-sharp brain and considerable courage when necessary * Financial Times *
Praise for Gerald Seymour:-
He has never lost his journalist's eye for the stories behind the news * The Sunday Times on The Crocodile Hunter *
Compelling novel . . . Seymour's feel for the Kent landscape and his realisation of minor characters, such as Cameron's heart-hardened mother, are almost Dickensian * The Times on The Crocodile Hunter *
Ask aficionados who is Britain's finest thriller writer, and many would answer the veteran Gerald Seymour * Guardian on Beyond Recall *
The three British masters of suspense, Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, and John le Carre, have been joined by a fourth - Gerald Seymour * New York Times on The Outsiders *
Seymour produces the most intelligent writing in the thriller genre * Financial Times on Beyond Recall *
Britain's finest thriller novelist is still the veteran Gerald Seymour, whose touch remains sure * i Paper on A Damned Serious Business *
