A gripping saga set in a conflict zone

The Dealer and the Dead, Gerald Seymour, Hachette India, Pp 458 (PB), Rs 295.00

SET in the conflict zone of Serbia-Croatia, the plot revolves around the people of a village who were ‘cheated’ by an arms dealer. Harvey Gillot, the dealer who prides himself about his honesty is confronted by the truth that his promised delivery of arms to a Croatian village did not take place. The villagers mobilised under the village teacher, contributed all they had, women donated their wedding rings and crosses, to get weapons to protect their village from marauding Serbs. But the long wait in the dark for the delivery claimed the lives of many men and the raiding Serbs destroyed the village, picked up women and abused them, there were orphaned kids and childless parents. Now the villagers want revenge from Gillot. They give a contract to a professional killer, once again colleting whatever they had left, for the dead body of Gillot. Who wins, the dealer or the villagers?
