MI5 officer Winnie Monks has never forgotten—or forgiven—the brutal murder of a young agent on her team at the hands of a former Russian Army officer turned fixer and criminal known as the Major. Now, ten years later, she learns that the Major is travelling to a villa at the popular Spanish holiday destination Costa del Sol, and she asks permission to send in a surveillance unit. The spooks locate an empty property near the Major’s: the Villa Paraiso. It’s perfect to spy from—and as a base for Winnie’s darker, less official, plans. But it turns out the villa isn’t deserted. The owners have invited a young British couple to house sit while they are away. Jonno and Posie, a new couple, think they are embarking on a romantic, carefree break in the sun. But when the MI5 team arrives in paradise, everything changes—their holiday is about to become a terrifying journey into the violent global business of organized crime. The Outsiders is a sophisticated thriller from a renowned master.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Once again demonstrating his ability to probe the moral murkiness of the spy trade and create an absorbingly diverse ensemble, Seymour crafts a sophisticated, reader-teasing tale.” Sunday Times (London)
“A gripping thriller.” Sun (London)
“Seymour again deploys a sizable cast of very well-developed characters and a complex but utterly believable plot to produce another terrific read…Already classed with Eric Ambler and John le Carré as an espionage master, Seymour burnishes his reputation with each new book.” Booklist
“Seymour keeps the book’s motor humming, changing scenes and points of view with expert timing…A fresh Spanish setting, a stream of characters with great nicknames like ‘the Tractor,’ and a mix of British, Eastern European, and American crime fighters make Seymour’s tweny-ninth novel one of his most entertaining.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Gildart Jackson employs an unusual English accent—part Cockney, part cultured British…[in a] multifaceted performance.” AudioFile
