This author's earlier books are FAR much better than his recent ones (this one included). This one is readable but absolutely not spectacular by any stretch of imagination.

There's a mention of the life-style of a certain ethnicity (and the resulting body odor) in the book which is to thtally uncalled for and some readers may well take offense at the author's writing.

By the way, to those young readers of this author's novels (if there're any) who belong to the I-Pad I-Pod Facebook/Twitter generation, that object between the author's hands in his photo (on the back cover of the dust jacket) is called a Typewriter, a writer's standard tool of trade before the advent of keyboard (just as stagecoach before motor cars' age).

I usually really enjoy Forsyth but this book is like reading a narrative and has all the action of a dry report. There is very little dialogue or character development. What saves it is the scary details of what's going on in the world.

Another topical read but a bit predictable.

Good story, very little "color" commentary to bore. Keeps the readers attention and want to keep reading. This is my first read for Forsyth and enjoy his style. Will read his earlier novels to compare his latest.

An interesting "Spy/Terrorist" novel. Had a little discomfort with the 3rd person approach in the story telling, but the narrative kept me reading.

Forsyth has gone downhill. Tedious, boring - nothing like what I expected. Day Of The Jackal was top notch. This is bad!!

Pretty standard issue in the usual types of characters. Would like to see more of an Opal type character - an unexpected Mossad agent.

First comes the rage and the hated. Then the justification, the pose of deep piety, all a sham.
