Summary

Jonas Merrick returns in another uncannily topical novel from one of the greatest thriller writers of our time.

In At The Kill Summary

In At The Kill by Gerald Seymour

Liverpool: a suburban crime family grips a whole city with fear.

And their ambition reaches further still.

Galicia: an entire community waits on the windswept edge of Europe for the delivery of four tonnes of cocaine, brought across the ocean in an almost unbelievable craft.

London: Jonas Merrick, grey and quiet, alone in a small office, seems an unlikely character to be tasked with bringing down an international drug network.

But while Jonas's colleagues regard him as scratchy, fastidious, old, he is also ruthless, cunning and brutally pragmatic. And he has a man on the inside: a would-be money-launderer on that wild Spanish coast. A man who has been undercover for so long, he has almost forgotten who he really is.

And he is due to come home. Has to. For he will be given no mercy if he is caught.

But Jonas needs him to stay.

The superb Jonas Merrick is fast becoming one of the great figures of British spy fiction. In At The Kill may be his most compelling story yet.

In At The Kill Reviews

Seymour orchestrates the build-up to his denouement as masterfully as Merrick co-ordinates his Spanish sting * The Sunday Times on In At The Kill *
This is a Jonas Merrick novel with a satisfying protagonist, a cast finely etched and deployed well by a master writer, and a series of milieux that underline the strength of criminals. A thriller of note, it is particularly interesting for capturing the tensions between police and the security services and within the latter * The Critic on In At The Kill *
You don't read Gerald Seymour, you commit to it totally. His stories have amazing detail, yet you still fly through them. And your effort is well rewarded * Sun on In At The Kill *
As ever, the great strength of Seymour's writing lies in his depiction of the poor bloody infantry of crime and policing * The Times on In At The Kill *
Seymour's portrayal of the city's crime dynasty, and its inner rivalries and tensions, is masterful * Financial Times *
Seymour has produced a tingling and compulsive story * On Yorkshire Magazine *
