Description
Just when he, was beginning to feel safe, Frank Perry's past has surfaced with a vengeance. Ten years ago, Perry made powerful enemies by spying for the British government on Iranian chemical and biological weapons installations. His information served to cripple Iran's killing capacity for years. Now, Iran is exacting its revenge -- and dispatching its most deadly assassin to do the job. Code-named the Anvil, the assassin moves with stealth toward Perry's asylum on the coast of Suffolk. As elaborate preparations are made to ensure Perry's safety, an unexpected new threat arises in the form of the local citizenry. Fearing for their lives, the community closes ranks against him, and Perry is left to rend for himself against a remorseless, faceless adversary.

From the author Time Out calls "one of the best plotters in the business" comes a brilliantly constructed contemporary parable on how history invariably and profoundly haunts the present. A Line in the Sand is a wonderful and penetrating depiction of life in the age of terrorism.

display_descriptionGerald Seymour's international thrillers have topped best-seller lists in England and have been made into television movies in both the UK and the United States. Like Ken Follett and John le CarrE, he is a master at putting strong characters in compelling situations. When sources reveal that Iran's top assassin has targeted Frank Perry for his next kill, the British Security Service wants Frank to move from the quiet English seacoast village where he's been hiding for five years. But having left behind his life and family once before, Frank decides he's through running. As he and the government take protective measures, Frank discovers an unsuspected enemy: the fears and suspicions of his friends and neighbors. A Line in the Sand thrillingly examines the political and personal motives that move people to make stands for what they believe in. Narrator Simon Prebble accents a building suspense that will leave listeners breathless with anticipation.
