What can I say about Forsyth!….a giant of a writer who’s meticulous research just oozes out of the pages. I live in expectant anticipation for each new novel. Frederick Forsyth is a true master of the thriller genre.
The Kill List is highly topical, scarey and cleverly plotted. A terrorist who delivers online radical sermons and who has come to be known as The Preacher has incited some Muslims to carry out assassinations. A retired US Marine general is one of their victims, but his son is a terrorist hunter.
The terrosit hunter enlists the helps of a teenage computer geek with Asperger’s Syndrome. The young man never leaves the loft of his family home though he is a genius when it comes to the internet.
The novel races between the USA and Somalia with detailed subplots involving warlords, pirates and special forces.
Forsyth has an intense knowledge of all he writes of which is ever evident.
Frederick Forsyth is at his best in this novel and shows the true mastery he has attained through skill and exceptional hard work.
Don’t miss out on this one.
