A thrilling story of the secret services, their enemies and the society they operate in, building with unrelenting suspense to a superb climax, 'The Crocodile Hunter' is Gerald Seymour writing at the top of his powers. In the office at MI5 where he works, they call Jonas Merrick 'the eternal flame'. It isn't a compliment. It's because he never goes out. He never goes undercover, never does surveillance, never goes with the teams that kick down the doors or seize the suspects off the street. He commutes into work and sits at his desk and then he goes home. But Jonas has qualities the hot-shots fail to notice: a steely concentration, a ruthless ability to focus and find the enemy hiding in plain sight.
