Frederick Forsyth:
The Veteran - hardcover

2001, ISBN: 1410400972

Hardcover, [EAN: 9781410400970], Large Print, Large Print Press, Large Print Press, Book, [PU: Large Print Press], Large Print Press, 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 the passengers very well, and they are not all who they might appear to be. And "Whispering Wind," the longest story in the book, is a very ambitious piece about the Battle of Little Big Horn and what came later for several of the participants. Each of the stories in this volume is Forsyth in top form. The writing exceeds expectations, the stories are never less than compelling, and the suspense in each of them is nonstop. --Otto Penzler, 2354170011, Literature & Fiction, 2354165011, Large Print, 2354164011, Formats, 2205888011, Custom Stores, 1040638, Specialty Stores, 916520, Books, 2354171011, Mystery & Thrillers, 2354165011, Large Print, 2354164011, Formats, 2205888011, Custom Stores, 1040638, Specialty Stores, 916520, Books, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 932480, Action & Adventure, 16164081011, Ancient & Medieval Literature, 933410, Canadian, 932108, Classics, 932240, Drama & Plays, 360739011, Erotica, 16186966011, Essays & Correspondence, 16186970011, Foreign Language Fiction, 932470, Genre Fiction, 932508, Historical Fiction, 932552, History & Criticism, 16170503011, Humour & Satire, 2056047011, Literary, 16170506011, Mythology & Folk Tales, 932624, Poetry, 933200, Short Stories & Anthologies, 1080390, United States, 933210, Women's Fiction, 927792, World Literature, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 949980, Suspense, 949968, Thrillers & Suspense, 948808, Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books
