For more than forty years, Frederick Forsyth has been writing extraordinary real-world novels of intrigue, but what most people don’t know is that some of his greatest stories of intrigue have been in his own life. He was the RAF’s youngest pilot at the age of nineteen, barely escaped the wrath of an arms dealer in Hamburg, got strafed by a MiG during the Nigerian civil war, landed during a bloody coup in Guinea-Bissau. The Stasi arrested him, the Israelis feted him, the IRA threatened him, and a certain attractive Czech secret police agent --- well, her actions were a bit more intimate. And that’s just for starters.

Added to the list is a terrorist of frightening effectiveness called the Preacher, who radicalizes young Muslims abroad to carry out assassinations. Unfortunately for him, one of the kills is a retired Marine general, whose son is TOSA’s top hunter of men.
