Publisher's Summary

Eighteen years after the barbarous war with the Serbs that tore their communities apart, a group of Croatian villagers discover the identity of the Englishman who they believe betrayed them by welching on a deal to supply arms.

With revenge in sight at last, they hire a professional killer from London to track him down...but is the story as simple as they think?

A brilliant, bruising thriller, told in a unique way, about what happens when the hand of the past suddenly reaches out to the present - and is holding a gun.

    Story
    "Too confusing"
    What would have made The Dealer and the Dead better?

    Either fewer characters or clearer distinction when switching between the various strands. There are at least five sets of characters and associated locations that the listener needs to track, through frequent switches, to make sense of the plot.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Reduced the frequency of location, character switches


    How could the performance have been better?

    Slightly longer pauses to help the listener identify when they happen.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The subject matter was interesting
