    Knocking off a bank or an armored truck is merely crude. Knocking off an entire republic has, I feel, a certain style." So says mining magnate Sir James Manson, a shadowy titan of London's financial district, who is scheming a coup d'├ętat in the small West African dictatorship of Zangaro, where a secret source of platinum lies waiting to be exploited.

    Tim says: "Definitely not Forsyth's Best"
    "Another fantastic Forsyth experience"
    Overall

    Outstanding audiobook. I truly enjoyed it. The characters were wonderful and as usual the ending has a twist. The plot starts a little slow, and the ending is a little sad, but I loved it. I hope he continues to publish and audible continues to carry his work. I disagree with the other review, I thought the narration was well done. The same narrator has done some of his other work which I also enjoyed. Overall, I think if you like his other stuff you will enjoy this.

    MI5 investigator John Preston, is the only man who can prevent an act of murderous devastation aimed at tumbling Britain into revolution.

    Calum says: "Good story, too much detail in some areas"
    "As usual, Forsyth is Fantastic"
    Overall

    Forsyth builds his story piece by piece gradually getting more and more interesting as the reader continues to become enthralled with the characters and the plot. The reader gradually discover what the diabolical plan is and then after you figure it out, you have no idea how they are going to stop it. Then, when you think you have it all sorted out, he throws you a little twist at the very end, which compliments his characters and leaves you with a clever smile on your face. I loved it, but I love almost all he does. Good stuff.

    Story

    Deception, blackmail, murder, revenge: these are the themes of stories that move from London to the coast of Spain, from Mauritius to Dublin. Whether his subject is assassination by stealth or the cruel confidence trick, Forsyth is never less than compulsive. Whether he is telling of gun-smuggling across the Irish border or wrestling a giant game-fish to death in a tropical sea, he fills in the last authentic and evocative detail.

    Ron says: "Short stories from the Master"
    "Forsyth at his best"
    Overall

    No combacks is another great Forsyth novel. The surprise ending and quick commentary are wonderful. I found Forsyth by accident, and I have been so pleased that I look forward to the release of every book. He always seems to do his homework and develop wonderful characters and those characters rarely disappoint. He seems to know how to leave me saying: "wow that was good, sorry I'm finished with it". Good stuff.

    What if you had carte blanche to fight evil? Nothing held back, nothing off the table. What would you do? For decades, the world has been fighting the drug cartels, and losing, their billions of dollars making them the most powerful and destructive organizations on earth. Until one man is asked to take charge. Paul Devereaux used to run Special Operations for the CIA before they retired him for being too ruthless. Now he can have anything he requires, do anything he thinks necessary. No boundaries, no rules, no questions asked.

    Tim says: "Another Good Read by Forsyth"
    "OK, but not as good as his other books"
    Overall

    It was good, but the ending was a little less impressive. As usual, Forsyth does a great job developing his characters and building a story, but I thought the ending was a little flat compared to his other works.

    When British and American intelligence catch wind of a major Al Qaeda operation in the works, they instantly galvanize, but to do what? They know nothing about it: the what, where, or when. They have no sources in Al Qaeda, and it's impossible to plant someone. Or is it?

    Frederick Forsyth's spellbinding novels are the natural outgrowth of an adventuresome career in international investigative journalism. Written in Austria and Germany during the fall of 1971, The Odessa File is based on its author's life experiences as a Reuters man reporting from London, Paris, and East Berlin in the early 1960s.

    writerly says: "good tension, great characters, engaging reading"
    "Forsyth at his best"
    Overall

    Outstanding story. Fredrick Forsyth always does his homework. His character development is amazing and his story always leaves you spell bound. There is often a twist at the end of his stories and every detail is wonderful. I loved this story, and I recommend all his stuff.

    When Navy SEAL Mack Bedford's fellow officers are brutally killed by Iraqi insurgents using a cruel, new anti-tank Diamondhead missile, Mack avenges their murders by gunning down the then-unarmed attackers, ultimately getting himself court-martialed and kicked out of the Navy. To make matters worse, Mack then learns that the Diamondhead missiles were sold illegally by French industrialist and infamous politician Henri Foche.

    Sam McCready has served with distinction for seven years as chief of the cover operations desk of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, a post that is the culmination of a brilliant career as an inventive and intrepid field agent. But times have changed. A high-level policy decision demands that the SIS strip away its old-style operatives, and the first to be targeted for retirement is the freewheeling McCready.

    Charles de Gaulle's withdrawal from Algeria invoked fury, but six assassination attempts had failed against the general. This novel postulates that the seventh, mostly deadly attempt involved a professional killer-for-hire who would be unknown to the French police. His code name: Jackal. His price: half a million dollars. His demand: total secrecy, even from his employers.

    Rebecca says: "intriguing novel, flawed narration"
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    Wonderful, as usual another great story with interesting characters and suspense.
