A British cabinet minister is gunned down by an IRA assassin, leaving an undercover agent to track down the killer in this riveting thriller.

With the taut pacing, gritty realism, and brilliantly fleshed-out characters that have led Seymour to be known as one of the masters of the modern thriller, Harry’s Game is widely regarded as one of the greatest thrillers of the past fifty years.

Harry’s Game, the novel that defined the career of master espionage writer Gerald Seymour, is a deadly hide-and-seek between two killers. One is a super-assassin who has already murdered a high-up government official. The other is secret agent Harry Brown, who must uncover and destroy him. As Brown goes to Belfast and immerses himself into the community there, attempting to flush out the assassin, the two men circle each other in their lethal game, ensnaring the reader in a world of violence as the book plunges into a nightmare world of creeping terror.

“Absorbing from beginning to end. . . . The sort of book that makes you lose track of time.” —The New York Times
