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)

Distant events brought up close and personal

What made the experience of listening to The Dealer and the Dead the most enjoyable?

Gerald Seymour is a master story teller, his heros and anti-heros so easy to identify with.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The policeman, idealism thwarted by realism, an experience I find heart-wrenching.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, a cliff-hanger right up to the post-script , but it is too long for that.

Any additional comments?

The mob violence scene, and the pre planning of it, extremely chilling. In South Africa we have seen that in action, absolutely realistic.

Outstanding!

Completely engrossing, great character development and a Shakespearian collection of characters and narrative. One of the best thrillers I have listened to in years.

Almost there

Good narration and a great basic story line. Problem was it all fell apart at the end! GS's descriptive powers are undiminished and his knowledge of the 'process' has to be commended. Yes you get into the characters but well the best way I can think is to say that I felt I was in a play and not in real life. OK?
