An extraordinary cutting-edge suspense novel from the master of international intrigue and #1 New York Times–bestselling author.
In Virginia, there is an agency bearing the bland name of Technical Operations Support Activity, or TOSA. Its one mission 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. TOSA actually exists. So does the Kill List.
Added to it is a new name: 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.
He has spent the last six years at his job. He knows nothing about his target’s name, face, or location. He realizes his search will take him to places where few could survive. But the Preacher has made it personal now. The hunt is on.

Praise for The Kill List
“Forsyth has always been a no-nonsense writer, eschewing flashy prose in favor of documentary realism, incorporating real-world elements into his stories. No one writes them quite like Forsyth, and this more than meets his usual high standards.”—Booklist
“[Forsyth] powers his plot with a clean efficiency, providing an absorbing account of the clockwork moves and split-second decisions required to close in on and dispatch the enemy. Strong descriptions of the settings add to the book's appeal.”—Kirkus
Praise for Frederick Forsyth

“Forsyth’s ability to create a believable character achieving unbelievable things is enthralling.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Forsyth [has a] flair for realistic thriller scenarios.”—Entertainment Weekly
