Frederick Forsyth (Author), Eric Conger (Reader). I understand the overall positive consensus on this book and acknowledge that forsyth is a true professional and a fine crafter of plot.

Frederick Forsyth (Author), Eric Conger (Reader). But I don't think that this book measures up to his best work like Day of the Jackal. It's hard to define why I felt the book was deficient other than to say that it just didn't pop like the best thrillers.

Frederick McCarthy Forsyth was born in Ashford, Kent, England, on August 25, 1938, the son of Frederick William Forsyth and Phyllis Green Forsyth. While at the Tonbridge School in Kent, he was a voracious reader, reading anything I could get my hands on that had to do with adventure. He was also an avoid motorcyclist, bullfighter, and airplane pilot.

Attorney Calvin Dexter hangs his shingle in a quiet New Jersey town, has a reasonably successful practice, and takes the hills strong while triathalon training. The Nigerian civil war of the late 1960s was one of the first occasions when Western consciences were awakened and deeply affronted by the level of the suffering and the scale of the atrocity being played out in the African Continent. This book which marked Frederick Forsyth's transition from journalist to author is a record of one of the most brutal conflicts the Third World has ever suffered, it has become a classic of modern war reporting.

Vivid and quite frightening characterisation of the antagonist, Zoran Zilic. Calvin Dexter as the sort of anti-hero come hero is almost too perfect to be true; a kind of working-man's-Jason Bourne-lawyer-come-batman-vigilante on a personal crusade to rid the world of the sociopathic genocidal maniacs of the world. The plot is intricately woven around the tragic and senseless murder of a young American foreign-aid volunteer in the Bosnian war by the monster-mercenary, Zilic, and the boys' well-to-do grandfather seeking vengeance through Dexter who spends his life making self deprecating, tortuous reparations for his own personal tragedies. What's preventing this rolicking thriller from getting 4-stars is the slightly flimsy, and all too fortuitous - at times even seemingly coincidental - development of the story towards the climax. Once we get to the apex it seems to take on a randomly chaotic 'fizzle' but ultimately predictable ending. At the end of the day it is a thrill-a-second adventure that delves into the disgraceful genocide in Bosnia and the insight into some of the likely factors, dynamics and protagonists around this true human horror. Here the master of faction delivers a very honest, chilling and probable view of how the awful and senseless 'ethnic-cleansing' chapter unfolded in Bosnia. From there however we move into the realms of Bond and Mission Impossible, which unfortunately detracts somewhat from the raw terror of the Bosnian conflict and the international politics surrounding it. It is however jolly exciting and if you can get past the, at times, superficial inadequacies of the plot, a real roller-coaster ride around the cold, harsh human failings in the Balkans, the intolerable claustrophibia of the steaming jungles and tunnels of Vietnam and the oppressively humid darkness of the deep third-world Caribbean coast of South America. In the great scheme of things it does raise questions around some of the possible circumstances that lead to 9/11. the theory is that if Calvin Dexter had not intervened with his private crusade, then the well-laid plans of other 'third-forces' may have prevented 9/11 from happening. This sub-plot runs throughout the novel and raises the interesting dilemma: is it better to entertain some, seemingly, lesser evil in order to achieve the greater good; or does evil need to be brought to account at all costs, even if it results in further tragedy. Poignant thread, I think could have been more of a central element of the entire plot. Still, exciting, edge-of the-seat stuff from the master storyteller.

As my heading makes clear, I most empathically do NOT agree with Frederick Forsythe's decidedly "right wing/Eurosceptic" politics( or those he has CIA official Paul "The Cobra" Devereaux air), but beginning with "The Day Of The Jackal", Forsythe's genius as a thriller writer has always been when to know to dial down the ideological tub thumping(whilst an author or newspaper columnist without firmly held views on at least some subjects would be about as interesting as the Prestel summary on the TV screen, too much of the trend can turn off the reader pretty quickly- remember he or she wants to be entertained-NOT preached to, see my review of James Huston's "Falcon Seven"). He evidently knows much about the world of not just the intelligence services( US as well as UK) as well as Special Forces in his rattling good book about Cal Dexter,a former "Tunnel Rat" turned vigilante/bounty hunter, seeking the Serb murder of an American aid worker, grandson of a Canadian mining magnate, as well as Paul Devereaux, a CIA official who is trying to use the wanted man to lure Osama Bin Laden into an ambush where the Al Qaeda chieftain can be "taken out "by a cruise missile.
Devereaux may argue that in intelligence as well as counter terror work, we don't have the luxury of using candidates for canonization or beatification(hence the fact that he killed an American is an irrelevancy): for the greater good of Western Liberty And Freedom we must turn a"blind eye to murder" but to my mind this argument bears a chilling similarity to Lenin's (not Stalin's) declaration that whatever advances the cause of world revolution is moral per se and since its formation, the "Company" has made common cause with everything and everyone from Nazi war criminals such as Klaus Barbie to Mafia gangsters(in both Italy and the US) as well as engaging in dubious mind control"Manchurian Candidate" style experiments which resulted in at least one death and possibly in other people being driven insane..
Enjoy the book, but disregard the politics!

Forsyth's novels always include extensive background information on the main character and several other important cast members. Sometimes this seems like Why Do I Care, but you always find out later. The author is very exacting on background facts, many of which are a bit surprising when they describe places or people you thought you knew about. Ingenious plot, ingenious methods used by the title character, and a great (if somewhat credibility-stretching) conclusion. But when I read an adventure story like this, I enjoy having my credibility stretched.
