"quietly compelling"

What is perhaps surprising about Gerald Seymour’s 37th novel is not the sympathetic depiction of the advantages of experience but the nuanced portrait of Jilkes, a former choirboy motivated by a desire to avenge his comrades killed in Syria. Seymour’s feel for the Kent landscape and his realisation of minor characters, such as Cameron’s heart-hardened mother, are almost Dickensian. Like Merrick, perhaps his talents have hitherto been underappreciated and this quietly compelling novel testament to the abilities of more than one unsung hero.
