Frederick Forsyth:

The Veteran - Paperback

Hardcover

[SR: 2951001], Gebundene Ausgabe, [EAN: 9781410400970], Großdruck, Large Print Press, Large Print Press, Book, [PU: Large Print Press], Large Print Press, Frederick Forsyth has been in danger recently of becoming better known for his splenetic political tirades than for his superlative thrillers, and it's to be hoped that he'll spend more time turning out books as gripping as The Veteran than cultivating his image as a radio pundit. After all, this is what he does best. Forsyth changed the face of the modern thriller with The Day of the Jackal, and the marriage of brilliantly realised detail and tight-as-a-drum narrative has become the industry standard ever since. This collection of five tales shows he has not lost his skill, and each reads like a perfectly turned mini-novel, rich in sharply drawn protagonists and wasting nary a word in delivering the goods. In the title tale, a canny lawyer finds himself acting for guilty men after a savage inner-city killing; in The Art of the Matter, destructive double-dealing is dispensed within the plush board rooms of a prestigious auction house; and in The Miracle a traveller en route to the brutal experience of the Palio horse race in Siena has his life changed by a supernatural incident. The range of these pieces is wide (even including a tale about a survivor of the massacre of Custer's troops at Little Bighorn), but all are brought off with the effortless skill that has always been the author's trademark: From even closer range a Sioux warrior rose from the long grass, pointed an ancient flintlock musket at Craig and fired. He had clearly used too much black powder in an effort to achieve the increased range. Worse, he had forgotten to remove the ramrod. The breech exploded with a roar and a sheet of flame, shattering the man's right hand to pulp. If he had been firing from the shoulder he would have lost most of his head... --Barry Forshaw , 52548011, Formats, 52554011, Paperbacks, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 67216011, Populäre Belletristik, 67221011, Action & Abenteuer, 67916011, Anthologien, 67220011, Buch zum Film, 67923011, Familiensagen, 67924011, Historisch, 67223011, Horror, 67926011, Krieg, 273042011, Medizin, 273043011, Metaphysisch, 67925011, Männerabenteuer, 67219011, Märchen, 67217011, Politisch, 55229011, Religion & Esoterik, 65642011, Schwul & Lesbisch, 1322750031, Seeabenteuer, 67218011, Sport, 67927011, Western, 66034011, Belletristik, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 68944011, Spannung, 68938011, Thriller, 68333011, Krimis & Thriller, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

2001, ISBN: 1410400972

Penzler Pick, September 2001: Frederick Forsyth is known as the bestselling author of classic thrillers such as The Day of the Jackal and The Odessa File, among others. He is far less known as one of our premier short story writers (even though he won an Edgar for "There Are No Snakes in Ireland"), so it is a pleasure to have a new book from this superb storyteller. "The Veteran" tells the story of an incident in one of the seedier parts of London. A Ugandan shopkeeper witnesses the mugging of a middle-aged man by two thugs. The shopkeeper has a perfect view of the crime so, when the man dies of his injuries, it would appear that the two thugs, now up on a murder charge, will be convicted. But justice does not always come easily, and it comes in many guises. "The Art of the Matter" recounts an ingenious and deliciously satisfying art scam. The twists and turns are breathlessly entertaining and just when you think it's over, there's one more way for the bad guys to get their comeuppance. "The Miracle" tells the story of an American couple in Siena on their way to a festival. They are stopped when a stranger tells them the story of the courtyard in which they stand. Some very wonderful things happened right there during the Second World War. Will the couple get to the festival? Will they care? "The Citizen" is a heart-stopping suspense story set on board a flight from Bangkok to London. We get to know the flight crew and some of contemporary,genre fiction,literature and fiction,mystery,mystery thriller and suspense,short stories,spy stories and tales of intrigue,thrillers,war Spy Stories & Tales of Intrigue, Large Print Press
