Publisher's Summary

MI6 plan to assassinate the leading maker of IEDs - roadside bombs- as he leaves his house in Iran. But first, they need to know when he is leaving. So it is that Danny 'Badger' Baxter finds himself in Iran, lumbered with a partner he loathes, lying next to a mosquito-infested marsh, observing the house. And knowing that if they are caught, Her Majesty's Government will deny all knowledge of them.

    "Slow burner but leads to almost unbearable tension"

    Be patient with this book-it is a slow burner but well worth it. The second half is almost unbearably tense. So much so that I found myself chewing my lip with anxiety as I listened.As with all the Gerald Seymour books I've listened to, his characters are so well-rounded that it's impossible not to empathise with them all - even a bomb-maker, for goodness sake. His research and understanding of his subject is as always, impeccable. I highly recommend this, especially for anyone who's ever wondered about what it's really like to be a covert operative.

    "Oh so boring"

    Well narrated, but so slow, it started to pick towards the end but by that time I'd given up...

    "Excellent!"

    This kept me hooked throughout. The conflict between the two main protagonists was so well written.

    "Good but Slow"
    Would you listen to A Deniable Death again? Why?

    We enjoy books by this author and his way of telling the story, this one dragged on through the middle however it was compelling listening towards the end and you could feel all the human emotions


    Any additional comments?

    Very good narration

    "Another brilliant story from Seymour"

    I have read and enjoyed all of Gerald Seymour's novels and 'A 'Deniable Death' ranks with 'Harry's Game' as one of my favourite and most thought provoking. As usual, the characters personalties, traits and back stories are expertly sewn into the narrative so that you really connect with them and understand what motivates them to act as they do as the story reaches its climax. Although listening late at night, I could not hit pause until I learned how Badger's heroic attempt to bring Foxy back home worked out. I missed out on badly needed sleep but it was well worth it.

    "Excellent Book"

    I really enjoyed this book. I have read a lot of Gerald Seymour books over the years and he is a great storyteller. I admit I had not read one of his for a while but the write-up attracted me to this because of my background. It was tense and suspenseful and really drew me along with it. The narator was good and overall I would thoroughly recommend it.

    "Nail biting..."

    This story had me from the beginning, I expected a plot twist or two and as several coarses of action converge into the grand scheme of things, this managed a few more.
    Some I saw coming as they built up, some not.
    The action builds to a double peak, and then a sympathetic 'closure'.

    It is brilliantly read, with voices and accents that seem fitting of the characters.

    "Disappointing"

    Nicely written (and read). Interesting, original premise. Very, very slow. Rather pretentious and self-consciously profound.

    "Plot too similar to his other books"

    This was an unusual plot but the layout of the characters and storyline are becoming a little bit too like a standard formula for GS and lack the originality of his earlier works, time for a change of direction for GS I think. Nevertheless, it is a good listen to those unfamiliar with GS's books and worthwhile for that, its just I've either read or listened to all his previous books and they're becoming a bit tired.

    "A Deniable Death"

    A rather confusing book with a strange plot centered around two characters involved in a 'crop' operation watching a house. As usual there are a number of strands to the book but unfortunately the reader seems to slip seemlessly between those strands and leaves the listener wondering where they are! I have listened to many audio books over the past 3-4 years and this one is definately ranked towards the bottom of my list.

    "An evocative yet sad tale of sacrifice"

    Very much recommend. Seymour's characters feel real and are inbuilt with the complexities, vices, emotion and doubts that drive and cripple us. It's not that the story has twists and turns that makes it so interesting. You feel with the characters at every step and just have to keep listening.
