A New York Times Bestselling Author

For more than forty years, Frederick Forsyth has been writing extraordinary real-world novels of intrigue, from the groundbreaking The Day of the Jackal to his prescient The Kill List. Every plot has been chillingly plausible and minutely researched. But some of Forsyth’s greatest stories of intrigue have been in his own life. The Stasi arrested him, the Israelis feted him, the IRA threatened him, and that’s just for starters. A memoir like no other, this is a pure delight.


Customer Reviews

"Forsyth shows once again he's a master of the political thriller by taking a simple but completely original idea and turning it into a compelling story. A forceful, suspenseful, intelligent novel."

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

"No one writes them quite like Forsyth, and this more than meets his usual high standards. Forsyth has always been a no-nonsense writer, eschewing fancy prose in favor of documentary realism, incorporating real-world elements into his stories."

— Booklist

"More than 40 years after he gave us the Jackal, Forsyth gives us the Preacher, a masked jihadist extremist whose videos are radicalizing Muslims into killing public officials. Forsyth powers his plot with a clean efficiency, providing an absorbing account of the clockwork moves and split-second decisions required to close in on and dispatch the enemy."
