2.0 out of 5 stars No wonder they want to live in Cricklewood!, 21 Oct 2006
This review is from: The Afghan (Hardcover)
I have bought, and enjoyed every one of Mr. Forsyth's excellent fiction works, and I thought that he had avoided the problem common to many novelists, in that they tend to lose their 'edge' regarding plotline, 'readability' and tone after some success! Unfortunately, with 'The Afghan', I fear that Mr. Forsyth's long rule as a 'must buy' to an addict such as myself is fast approaching the end of it's path! Where the character Martin in !Fist of God' was utterly believable, because the writing led you carefully along that path of credibility, in 'The Afghan' his life turns into dust, because the author simply 'lost the plot'

I tend to agree with one of the previous reviewers when he said that the publisher probably wanted a quick release, so got something cobbled together! I expected far better from Frederick Forsyth, and am very dissappointed with his latest book!
