Frederick Forsyth is the reknowned author of "The Day of the Jackal". He is totally capable of matching the technical depth of Clancy and cohorts without sacrificing the trademark Forsyth pace.
The Fist of God is a totally engrossing thriller writen by a master. The level of technical detail is astounding yet it never detracts form the pace of the narrative.
The action is set around the Gulf War and involves action on the ground, in the air and with Special Forces.
