Publisher's Summary

During those fateful weeks before Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, a fragment of radio intercept had referred to Qubth-ut-Allah, a devastating secret weapon that could rain death and destruction on the Allied forces. Despite Allied scepticism, Major Mike Martin, an SAS man who can pass as an Arab, is sent into Kuwait to assess Iraqi strength and help the resistance.
What he discovers there takes him into the heart of Baghdad, where he is to 'run' the Iraqi spy known as Jericho, the sleeper who might be prepared to provide vital information for money. It is a highly dangerous operation, the results of which cause the Allies to delay their ground assault for four days - while Martin parachutes into the Iraqi mountains on the most hazardous mission of his life: to find and destory Qubth-ut-Allah - the Fist of God.

A good book that perhaps should have been great. In my view its length counted against it. Forsyth simply doesn't write bad books or even mediocre ones; this is simply to detailed but unquestionably worth a listen

One of his best

Would you listen to The Fist of God again? Why?

Absolutely! I also have the abridged version (on CD) and thought that was good but the 'full' version is even better. Gripping to the end.

What did you like best about this story?

Frederick Forsyth gives so much detail and it really makes the story interesting and gripping.

Which scene was your favorite?

It's hard to single out one scene because they all interweave to create the whole picture.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

How and why Iraq lost the Gulf War.

Any additional comments?

The narrator was just perfect too. His voice, his understanding of what he was reading and the emphasis on certain parts of the book made this a pleasure to listen to.
