The plot itself is very formulaic - Good Man (the Tracker) tries to find the Bad Guy (the Preacher) - and apart from a brief diversion with a subplot about Somali pirates, that's pretty much it. They find him, follow him then kill him. No twists, nothing unexpected.
Obviously lots of people on Amazon disagree judging by the 4 and 5 star reviews - I guess all I can say is that if you think this is good you'll be absolutely blown away by his better books (Day of the Jackal, Odessia, Fist of God etc) which are so, so much better than this.
Overall a big disappointment.
In this book, we learn his name, and we learn his history, and he's an instantly likeable character. US Marine, Arab linguist/specialist etc etc, working for a secret CTU-style agency called TOSA (Technical Operations Support Agency), and his mission? Find and neutralise The Preacher - a new extreme terrorist who is shaping the wills of many to carry out atrocities in the UK and the USA.
Forsyth has delved once again into extremism after his break with The Cobra. And why not? It's current and is a good idea to give us a new bad guy to hate. After the death of Bin Laden I wondered if Frederick would delve back into this territory and produce an espionage tale with military might. But here we don't get a Seal Team Six - that would have been too obvious and cliche. Not even the SAS feature in this book. Instead, we get the Pathfinders. Bravo, I say. If you've never heard of the Pathfinders - read this book to find out more. They're not fictitious - they do exist in Her Majesty's Armed Forces in the real world, and here Forsyth gives us an ensemble cast of an Airborne team of British squaddies who get to ply their trade on foreign soil with the backing of the British PM and the President of the USA, proving that the Special Relationship has never been better.Read more ›
The Kill List presents the Tracker's forensic, methodical and relentless pursuit of his target's identity and life. The Preacher is not a `normal' terrorist. He makes full use of digital technology to both disseminate his video sermons amongst his followers and hide their origin. The Tracker, though, has a bonus up his sleeve - the brilliant Hacker. The Hacker is a teenager, unable to leave his own home but with the key to the world's network of communications at his fingertips. Further afield, on the ground is an agent prepared to put himself in the greatest of danger as the secret forces of America's allies unite against the Preacher.
Frederick Forsyth, author of The Day of the Jackal, is an undoubted master of spy thrillers and, with The Kill List, he shows himself to be well up to date with the latest techniques of perpetrating and discovering acts of terror. The success of The Kill List, and what made it unputdownable for me, is the time spent constructing the background to the characters.Read more ›

I thought Freddie Forsyth could do no wrong - this was abysmal. Buy a bottle of wine instead. Dull, repetitive and long winded. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Andratx Peter

Frederick Forsyth is the best of the best, and I thoroughly enjoy all of his books. The Kill List is an excellent read and as usual, his research is second to none.Published 1 month ago by CKM
