"It was a dirty job in a dirty war. Danny Curnow, known in the army by his call sign, Vagabond, ran agents and informers. He played God with their lives and their deaths, and was the best at his job--and he quit when the stress overwhelmed him. Now he lives in quiet isolation, until the call comes from an old boss: Violence in Northern Ireland is on the rise again. Weapons are needed for a new campaign. Gaby Davies of MI5, sparky and ambitious, runs the double agent Ralph Exton, who will be the supposed middle man in brokering an arms deal with a Russian contact. The covert world of deception and betrayal was close to destroying Danny across the Irish Sea. Fifteen years later, the stakes are higher, the risks greater, and there is an added agenda on the table. If he wants to survive, Danny will have to prove, to himself, that he has not softened, that he is as hard and ruthless as before"--Publisher description.

A laborious construction, with byzantine plots, was presented as a thriller. Not so, in my opinion, Mr. Seymour!

No empathy was generated for anyone in this slow moving and dark novel. Unconvincing motivations are still unconvincing no matter how many pages you spend developing them!
I actually gave up on this novel about half way through.

Gerald Seymour at his grim murky best.
This one was depressing.
