Review quote

"Full of insider technical detail, [The Kill List] packs the punch Forsyth's readers relish, complete with a breath-taking denouement in the desert that makes it impossible to put down...A master storyteller" -- Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail "I was gripped by the story of the lone assassin hired to kill President de Gaulle. I reread it last year and found it just as enthralling. It hadn't dated a bit. More than four decades later Forsyth's new thriller proves he has lost none of his powers. The prose, like the plot, is as taut and lean as ever. That reflects the journalist that first and foremost Forsyth has always been. So too does his unerringly topical eye." -- Fergus Kelly Daily Express "THRILLER OF THE WEEK - A contemporary update on the theme of a deadly assassin closing in on an important target" Mail on Sundayshow more

Brilliance from The Master Fredrick Forsythe is back with a brilliant thriller that is thoroughly up to date well researched and could be happening right now. Forsythe is master of the thriller genre and with the Kill List he shows his readers why he will long remain one of if not the best thriller writer in the English Language. This is a book is worth every penny and you will want to reread it. As always this book is a well researched well written book with nothing left to chance. The tracker is a former Lieutenant-Colonel in the United States Marine Corps who now works for a very shadow agency TOSA under the command of J-SOC with a direct line to the President is charged with finding and dispatching Al-Qaeda and all other associated terrorists. There is one particular terrorist that is inspiring many acts of terror in America and Britain often referred to as The Preacher. Events in the book see that this books a very personal battle for Tracker and he will chase him to the ends of the earth if necessary. Also during the course of the story a seemingly unrelated act of piracy on a Swedish happens which helps to steer things in the Tracker�??????�??????�??????�??????�??????�??????�??????�??????�??????�??????�????�???�??�?�¢??�??????�??????�??????�????�???�??�?�¢??�??????�??????�????�???�??�?�¢??�??????�????�???�??�?�¢??�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢�????�???�??�?�¢?�????�???�??�?�¬�????�???�??�?�¢?�????�???�??�?�¢s favour.
