NZ Review He now writes better endings than anyone else, and the extended finale is particularly brilliantly orchestrated. The Sunday Times, Thriller of the Month Praise for Gerald Seymour Seymour expertly marshals his plot as Jago inches ever closer to the heart of darkness. A thoroughly engrossing thriller. Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday on NO MORTAL THING A first-rate thriller with all the strengths of his recent work: audacity, believability, impeccable pacing, [and] a rich, diverse ensemble of supporting characters. The Sunday Times on NO MORTAL THING Seymour is, quite simply, one of the finest thriller writers in England. Daily Mail on THE CORPORAL'S WIFE Seymour is not one to cut corners. He does his research, thinks hard about his story and gives us richly imagined novels that bristle with authenticity.
