Print too small, Don't strain you eyes it is not worth it.
This book is an absolute must-read for every mystery-thriller fan. Frederick Forsyth here develops an interesting and ultimately shocking plot that involves the top government officials of the cold war era superpowers and how they try to come to grips with a heinous act of terrorism with the aid of a master hostage negotiator. Forsyth develops his characters admirably providing a detailed background and motivation for each without dragging the plot down in any way. The story maintains its realism and suspense from the very first page right upto the last one. I have found this to be Forsyth's best work since his masterpiece 'The Day of the Jackal.'
If you're looking for another 'Day of the Jackal', you'll be disappointed. Forsyth goes into great detail setting the story up, before the action really begins. Packed with many specifics and details, almost too many. It's easy to get bogged down trying to make sense of all of the details early on, but once the action begins it's hard to put down. Overall, a good novel for any Forsyth fan.
