Description of this Book

The Kill List: a top secret catalogue of names held at the highest level of the US government. On it, those men and women who would threaten the world's security. And at the top of it, The Preacher, a radical Islamic cleric whose sermons inspire his followers to kill high profile Western targets in the name of God. As the bodies begin to pile up in America, Great Britain and across Europe, the message goes out: discover this man's identity, locate him and take him out. Tasked with what seems like an impossible job is an ex-US marine who has risen through the ranks to become one of America's most effective intelligence chiefs. Now known only as The Tracker, he must gather what scant evidence there is, collate it and unmask The Preacher if he is to prevent the next spate of violent deaths. Aided only by a brilliant teenaged hacker, he must throw out the bait and see whether his deadly target can be drawn from his lair.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 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
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)
