Premise is straightforward – an unknown killer is contracted to kill French President- Charles De Gaulle. This is story of how Killer prepares for his kill fully knowing that it would be practically impossible to go near the President and how someone in France searches for him without having any clue how to start with. Forsyth, given his background, has brilliant understanding of how things operate in this space. From the first statement of the novel, to the last- this is absolute masterpiece. It is so realistic and detailed and you often wonder if Forsyth had firsthand account of such a thing in real. It is strange but you end up rooting for both the parties- you want killer to succeed and you also want him to be caught before the act- imagine someone capable of doing this!
If you like thrillers, you should read this. Full Stop.
