Official Flipkart Review
The Tracker – an ex-US marine and an intelligence chief must stop The Preacher. The Preacher is an Islamic cleric who inspires and motivates people to kill high profile Westerners. This is the so-called Kill List on which the book is centred. It is up to the Tracker to stop this from happening. That is the gist of the novel like somehow most Forsyth books.
The pages fly and readers do not have to think a lot while reading such a book. The writing is average and yet The Kill List makes for some great train or a flight reading.
The Kill List is a thriller set in present day by spy-thriller mastermind Frederick Forsyth. It follows an agent known as The Tracker in his hunt for an Islamic Radical called The Preacher.
Summary of the Book
The Technical Operations Support Activity (TOSA) in Virginia exists as a front for USA’s manhunt operations. It’s mission: to find and kill every individual so dangerous to the nation that their names have been classified under the Kill List. One such threat is an Islamic Radical known to the world only as “The Preacher." Known for his influential “lectures," the Preacher’s name echoes throughout the United States and the United Kingdom after he orchestrates the murders of thirteen prominent members of society. This leads to the US searching for the right man for the manhunt, and they soon find Marine Officer Kit Carson on every list. Lt. Carson soon finds himself transferred to TOSA and in charge of the hunt for the biggest threat to world peace since Osama Bin Laden himself, fuelled by his own personal agenda against the Preacher for the attempt on Lt. Carson’s own father.
