Reviews

This subpar war-on-terror thriller from Diamond Dagger Award-winner Forsyth, with its unknowable outcome, offers less suspense than his Edgar-winning debut, The Day of the Jackal, where the ending is never in doubt. A Muslim extremist, known only as the Preacher, is spreading the message of violent jihad via English-language videos, and his acolytes have begun targeting public officials in the U.S. and the U.K. The job of stopping him falls to Kit Carson, an ex-Marine now part of a super-secret agency in Virginia called Technical Operations Support Activity. Carson, who's known as the Tracker, assembles an assortment of allies straight out of a Mission Impossible script, including a reclusive teenager who's a master hacker employed to trace the Preacher. Some readers will wonder why Forsyth bothered to give Carson a personal incentive to complete the mission. Others will find a lack of memorable characters an obstacle to genuine engagement.

"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 Sunday
