The weapon is invisible and omnipresent. Without it modern society grinds to a halt. It is electricity. The killer harnesses and steers huge arc flashes with voltage so high and heat so searing that steel melts and his victims are set afire.


When the first explosion occurs in broad daylight reducing a city bus to a pile of molten shrapnel-riddled metal officials fear terrorism. Lincoln Rhyme a world-class forensic criminologist known for his successful apprehension of the most devious criminals is immediately tapped for the investigation.

Annotation:
Cocaine is flowing too freely and forcibly into the U.S., and instead of the usual bureaucratic dealings, the President decides that this reining this in is a one-man job--for former CIA Special Ops Director, Paul Devereaux. THE COBRA is classic Frederick Forsyth, who has written more than a dozen political thrillers in his illustrious career.
Author Bio
Frederick Forsyth
The son of shopkeepers, Frederick Forsyth left his home in England at the age of 17 and traveled to Spain to study Spanish, only to find himself more interested in becoming a matador. Two years later, he eschewed a college education to become the RAF's youngest pilot. Following his service in the air force, Forsyth worked as a reporter for Reuters and the BBC, but after 13 years in journalism, he turned his talents toward writing novels, a vocation which quickly brought him fame. His first novel, "The Day of the Jackal" (1971), won numerous awards and became an instant international hit. He followed this novel with an unbroken string of best-selling thrillers, often basing the plots on little-known historical facts. Forsyth builds his thrillers using a delicate balance of suspense meant to slowly pull the reader toward a climactic finish, at the same time remaining careful to paint the slightest details, ensuring both accuracy and credibility.

Praise

"Forsyth's canny depiction of the cocaine industry's workings is alone worth the ride." - Connie Fletcher 07/01/2010
