Join one of Britain’s finest thriller writers as Gerald Seymour talks about his latest novel, Battle Sight Zero.

The Kalashnikov AK47. A weapon with a unique image. A symbol of freedom fighters and terrorists across the globe. Undercover officer Andy Knight has infiltrated an extremist group intent on bringing the rifle to Britain – something MI5 have been struggling for years to prevent.

He befriends Zeinab, the young Muslim student from Yorkshire who is at the centre of the plot. All Zeinab needs to do is travel to the impoverished high-rise estates of Marseilles and bring one rifle home on a test run. Then many more will follow – and with them would come killing on an horrendous scale.

Supremely suspenseful, Battle Sight Zero follows Andy and Zeinab to the lethal badlands of the French port city, simultaneously tracking the extraordinary life journey of the blood-soaked weapon they are destined to be handed there.

Gerald Seymour first exploded onto the literary scene in 1975 with the massive bestseller HARRY’S GAME. Many books later he’s still going strong! We’re delighted to welcome one of the iconic thriller writers to Oswestry.
