Summary

Danny Curnow, known in the army family by his call sign, Vagabond, ran agents, informers. Now he lives in quiet isolation and works as a guide to tourists visiting the Normandy's D-Day beaches. But violence in Northern Ireland is on the rise again. The covert world was close to destroying Danny. Fifteen years later the stakes are higher, the risks greater, and Danny will have to prove that he is as hard and ruthless as before.

Critic 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 on The Corporal’s Wife)
"Picking up a novel by Gerald Seymour is like taking a deep breath of fresh air" ( Independent on The Corporal’s Wife)

Poor

Disjointed story, verbose & at times hard to follow in audio format. Not recommended to buy.

My favourite read of the year

What made the experience of listening to Vagabond the most enjoyable?

All the usual attention to detail that this author provides and a deeper more thought provoking story line has made this my favourite audiobook of the year.

Should be on a Psychology reading list

What would have made Vagabond better?

It was basically a story spun around Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Unfortunately the plot was weak and overall it wasn't very good.

What will your next listen be?

I will listen to more by Gerald Seymour and put this down to a bad day at the typewriter.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrator was fine

Not good.

Would you try another book written by Gerald Seymour or narrated by John O'Mahony?

Not one narrated John O'Mahoney.

What could Gerald Seymour have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Far too slow paced.

How could the performance have been better?

Cut out the dreadful accents.

Was Vagabond worth the listening time?

No.

Any additional comments?

Nothing like as enjoyable as his best books.
