This reads like a training guide on hunting down terrorists. It is a very detailed story of the hunt for the Preacher, a terrorist who broadcasts over the internet to recruit new followers. He instructs them on how to target people in the U.S. and Britain. These new converts are ideally people already in country, who can be convinced to attack their targets from within. One man, Col. "Kit" Carson is leading the fight against the Preacher, not only because he is the head of an anti-terrorist task force, but also because his own father has been a target of an attack. A good read, but sometimes the technical aspect over powers the human story. Book provided for review by Putnam.

Boring! The first approximately 60 pages are just historical or biographical background. I'm on page 73 of 239 (per Nook) and Kit Carson is finally doing something - he is having conversation. It couldn't get more exciting than this!! Maybe the next 166 pages will be  interesting, in which case I'll post a better review.

    Recommended for those who like Us Special forces and CIA novels

    A well spun (usual for Forsyth) and catching story of the modern world kidnappings and piracy.

    Very Poor -- not the Forsyth of old

    I have been a Frederick Forsyth fan for a long time -- but not any more! This book is tired -- a thin, watery plot and filled with poorly drawn characters. One particular annoyance is that Forsyth has apparently done no research on American military institutions, missions, customs or uniforms. He simply transplanted what he knows about the British military onto American platforms. It doesn't work. Save your money.

    Failure to engage

    If I had known that this was a story about Somali pirates, I would not have bought it. I had trouble engaging at any level with the story line, and did not enjoy it.

    The core story line of the Tracker is unique, and could have been interesting, but never drew me in.
