From the Publisher:
An extraordinary cutting-edge suspense novel from the master of international intrigue and #1 New York Times?bestselling 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.
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.
"[Forsyth] powers his plot with a clean efficiency, providing an absorbing account of the clockwork moves and split-second decisions required to close in on and dispatch the enemy. Strong descriptions of the settings add to the book's appeal." 08/01/2013
