Jericho's War

Jericho's War

Selected by The Sunday Times as one of the four top thrillers of the year, JERICHO’S WAR is the new paperback from ‘the best thriller writer in the world’ (Daily Telegraph)

In a moment of nerve-shredding suspense that will affect many thousands of lives, a handful of men and women converge on a barren stretch of Yemeni desert.

The mission is to take down a high-value player in the war against Al-Qaeda.

It is the brainchild of an old, fat fool called Jericho. In his striped cricket blazer, never without a G&T, he is a sweating figure of fun among the ex-pats across the border in Muscat.

Yet perhaps he is not quite as old, or foolish, or even fat as he appears.

Nor as harmless…

Welcome to Jericho’s War: its weaponry is state-of-the-art, its brutality as timeless as the desert.

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
Praise for Gerald Seymour
Seymour is, quite simply, one of the finest thriller writers in England.
Daily Mail on THE CORPORAL'S WIFE
He now writes better endings than anyone else, and the extended finale is particularly brilliantly orchestrated.
The Sunday Times, Thriller of the Month
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.
Washington Post on THE COLLABORATOR
Seymour expertly marshals his plot as Jago inches ever closer to the heart of darkness. A thoroughly engrossing thriller.
