The master!!

Forsyth again proves himself to be the master of suspense. As much as I like to read Clancy, Forsyth blows him out of the water with another masterful tale of heroism and perseverance. The narration is strong and the story is absolutely rivetting. This is well worth the money or one of your monthly book tokens. Truly wonderful. ENJOY!!
