Publisher's Summary

An extraordinary cutting-edge suspense novel from the master of international intrigue and number-one New York Times best-selling author.
In Virginia, there is an agency bearing the bland name of Technical Operations Support Activity, or TOSA. Its one mission is to track, find, and kill those so dangerous to the United States that they are on a short document known as the Kill List. TOSA actually exists. So does the Kill List.
Added to it is a new name: a terrorist of frightening effectiveness called the Preacher, who radicalizes young Muslims abroad to carry out assassinations. Unfortunately for him, one of the kills is a retired Marine general, whose son is TOSA's top hunter of men. He has spent the last six years at his job. He knows nothing about his target's name, face, or location. He realizes his search will take him to places where few could survive. But the Preacher has made it personal now. The hunt is on.

Good, But Not Forsyth's Best

First of all let me say that I've read all but one or two of Forsyth's fictional works. Compared with all of his previous novels, I'd say this is one of the weaker ones. At times, I almost wondered if was reading an abridged version, as the character development seemed far less than most of Forsyth's other novels.

As is the case with all of his works, you learn a lot about the subject at hand, which in this case is terrorism.

The story in and of itself is not bad, but the twists and turns are not as surprising or clever as in other works like Day of the Jackal, The Fourth Protocol or Avenger. Nor is the story as well told.

I would also question whether George Guidall was the best choice as a narrator for this story. I think he is a very gifted narrator and have enjoyed numerous books that he has read, however this type of book doesn't really fit Guidall, in my opinion. I'm not sure if it's his age or his voice quality, but his voice and delivery doesn't really add to the suspense of the story. And I say this as one who very seldom quibbles with a narrator. Often times I'm puzzled by the number of people who don't like a narrator, but in this case, I just don't think George fits well.

All in all, if you are a fan of Forsyth and want to read all of his works, I'd go ahead and get a copy. If you are new to Forsyth, I'd skip this one (and The Dogs of War) and pick up one of his best novels, such as "The Day of the Jackal", "The Fourth Protocol", "Avenger", "The Veteran" or "The Cobra". He is really one of the best writers in this genre and one of my very favorite authors, I just don't think this is Forsyth at his best.

Where's The Fire?

Just finished this... panting,... wait let me catch my breath. I felt like I was chasing the characters all the time. It just moved from one action scene to another at breakneck speed. I liked the plot. I liked the characters from what I got to know of them. I wish this author had taken the time to develope some of the characters and relationships in a deeper fashion. At times it seemed as if Mr Guidall himself was having a hard time keeping the thing from running off the track. All in all I think you will like the book if you just want a fast mover.
