The Outsiders by Gerald Seymour is a story that reflects the world of organised crime and 'legalised' government-sanctioned murders, featuring an MI5 team and Russian crime lords.

While an MI5 team is investigating a lead about an illegal arms delivery in Budapest, the brutally-murdered body of a British agent is discovered. The team's leader Winnie Monks vows vengeance, as she and her team patiently wait for a lead behind the MI5 headquarters. It turns out that the killer is a Russian crime-boss named Major, a former member of the infamous KGB. They have been given the green signal to carry out 'special services' on behalf of the Russian government. When a disgruntled gang member approaches British intelligence with information about who really killed the MI5 agent and where the gangster boss is to be seen next, it is up to Winnie Monks to make the best of this vital bit of information. She immediately dispatches a team to the mafia boss' next location and prepares a backup plan in case local authorities do not cooperate during extradition proceedings. As the team patiently albeit secretly wait for Major to show up, they witness brutal murders committed by his henchmen.

Through this story, Seymour takes readers into the violent and unforgiving world of organised crime and the brutality with which 'services' are executed. The Outsiders was published by Hodder Paperbacks in 2012 and is available in the paperback format.
