An extraordinary cutting-edge suspense novel from the "king of the pack" (The Washington Times), #1 New York Times bestselling author Frederick Forsyth.

In northern Virginia, a secret agency named TOSA (Technical Operations Support Activity) has one mission: to track, find, and kill those so dangerous to the United States that they are on a short, very close-held document known as the Kill List.

Now a new name has been added: a terrorist of frightening effectiveness called the Preacher, who radicalizes young Muslims living abroad to carry out assassinations. Unfortunately for him, one of his targets is a retired Marine general, whose son is TOSA’s top tracker of men.

The Preacher has made it personal—and now the hunt is on....

About the Author:

Frederick Forsyth is the author of sixteen novels and short story collections, from The Day of the Jackal, The Odessa File, and The Dogs of War to, most recently, The Afghan and The Cobra. A former pilot and print and television reporter for Reuters and the BBC, he has had five movies and a television miniseries made from his works. In 2012, he won the Diamond Dagger Award from the Crime Writers’ Association for a career of sustained excellence. He lives in Buckinghamshire, England.

From Booklist:

A retired marine general is gunned down by an unknown assassin—collateral damage, apparently, in an attack on a U.S. senator. The general’s son, code-named the Tracker, is part of a top-secret government agency responsible for locating, and eliminating (without benefit of trial), people on the so-called “kill list” of enemies of the U.S. The Tracker knows almost nothing about the assassin, not even his name, but he is determined to find him, no matter the cost. Imagine Forsyth’s The Day of the Jackal told almost entirely from the point of view of investigator Claude Lebel, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of the author’s approach here: this is a procedural told in a straightforward, reportorial style. Forsyth has always been a no-nonsense writer, eschewing flashy prose in favor of documentary realism, incorporating real-world elements into his stories (the Tracker and his adversary are made up, but the government agency is based in reality). No one writes them quite like Forsyth, and this more than meets his usual high standards. --David Pitt
