LoveReading View on The Cobra

In February 2012 Frederick Forsyth was announced as the winner of the CWA Diamond Dagger 2012. Chair of the CWA Peter James said, “Frederick Forsyth is a hugely deserving recipient and The Day of the Jackal remains one of the greatest thrillers of our times. He has set a new standard of research-based authenticity with his writing, which has had a major influence both on my work and on many of my contemporaries in the crime and thriller field. We are very thrilled that he has accepted this award.”

 

Longlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger 2011.

The twelfth novel from this master of thriller writing. In the Cobra, ex CIA man Paul Devereaux is given a licence to stop the drug cartels by whichever means necessary. Forsyth is a great researcher and doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of the world of the drug barons. A great thriller, action packed and thought provoking.

The Cobra Synopsis

An unwinnable war: Cocaine is worth billions of dollars a year to the drug cartels who spread their evil seed across Western society. It causes misery, poverty and death. And slowly its power is spreading...A man on a mission ex-CIA special ops, Paul Devereux, intellectual, dedicated and utterly ruthless, is given what seems like an impossible task: Stop the drug barons, whatever it costs. At his disposal, anything he wants - men, resources, money. He must assemble a team equal to the lawless men who control this deadly trade. An unthinkable solution: Up to now the drug cartels have had it their way. Up to now, the forces of law and order have played by the rules. That is about to change. Those rules no longer apply...and a dirty war is about to get a whole lot dirtier...
