"MI5 officer Winnie Monks has never forgotten - or forgiven - the death of a young agent on her team at the hands of a former Russian Army Major turned gangster. Now, ten years later, she learns that the Major is travelling to a villa on the popular Spanish holiday destination Costa del Sol, and she asks permission to send in a surveillance unit. They find 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 Secret Service team arrives in paradise, everything changes. Gerald Seymour is a perennial bestseller in the UK. He routinely receives rave reviews for his work, and The Outsiders is no exception--The Sunday Times (UK) called it "a sophisticated, reader-teasing tale," while The Sun (UK) praised it as "a gripping thriller.""--

A laborious construction, with byzantine plots, was presented as a thriller. Not so, in my opinion, Mr. Seymour!

No empathy was generated for anyone in this slow moving and dark novel. Unconvincing motivations are still unconvincing no matter how many pages you spend developing them!
I actually gave up on this novel about half way through.

Gerald Seymour at his grim murky best.
This one was depressing.
