For more than 40 years, Frederick Forsyth has been writing extraordinary real-world novels of intrigue --- from the groundbreaking THE DAY OF THE JACKAL to the prescient THE KILL LIST. Whether writing about the murky world of arms dealers, the shadowy Nazi underground movement, or the intricacies of worldwide drug cartels, every plot has been chillingly plausible because every detail has been minutely researched. But what most people don’t know is that some of his greatest stories of intrigue have been in his own life.

The mission of Technical Operations Support Activity (TOSA) is to track, find, and kill those so dangerous to the United States that they are on a short document known as the Kill List. 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.
