Jonas Merrick. At MI5 they call him ‘the eternal flame’, because he never goes out. Never goes undercover, or on surveillance, or kicking down doors. If he’s studying a map, he’s probably planning his caravan holiday.

But what the hot-shots fail to notice in Jonas is a steely concentration, a ruthless ability to find the enemy who hides in plain sight like a submerged crocodile, waiting for prey.

Cameron Jilkes. A young man from a broken background, trained as a Jihadi in the harshest theatre of war. Coming ashore near Dover, he plans to live unnoticed, before unleashing a terrifying strike.

And this time, Jonas Merrick must go out – to hunt the crocodile himself.

Featuring a chapter from the new Jonas Merrick novel The Foot Soldiers, publishing in 2022

Reviews

He has never lost his journalist's eye for the stories behind the news
The Sunday Times
Compelling novel . . . Seymour's feel for the Kent landscape and his realisation of minor characters, such as Cameron's heart-hardened mother, are almost Dickensian
The Times
Another fine spy story with an offbeat protagonist.
Peterborough Telegraph
The three British masters of suspense, Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, and John le Carre, have been joined by a fourth - Gerald Seymour
The New York Times
