Thrown out of the SAS for insubordination, Gord Brown spends his dreary, uneventful days on a remote salmon farm in Scotland. Everything changes when he is approached by three Guatemalan Indians, who are desperately searching for a fighting man, someone to mastermind an uprising against the brutal military dictatorship who have massacred so many of their people. Suddenly his life has a purpose once again. The four men land in Cuba and fly across into the jungles of Guatemala, where they rapidly assemble a guerilla army. But as they approach the capital city, the goverment becomes increasingly threatened by their presence and is determined to annihilate them at all costs...Review:
An exciting novel that is full of inside knowledge... It's time for Gerald Seymour to be recognised as ranking right up there with Graham Greene ( New York Times)
Unstoppable momentum ( Daily Telegraph)
Moving and gripping. Seymour's chacter are all beautifully drawn. The dialogue is so real you can hear it and the plot is as tight as a drum. It is tempting to say that Seymour is at the height of his powers... He just gets better and better ( Today)
