They have come to recruit a fighting man to lead an uprising against the brutal military dictatorship which is killing their people.

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)
