Product Details


“Vintage Forsyth, intricate, exact and gripping.”—The New York Times Book Review

“A mature mastery of storytelling melded with a deep knowledge of realpolitik . . . another strong performance by a writer who knows exactly what he’s about, and who here catalyzes narrative with another memorable protagonist, the stealthy and daring Monk.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Frederick Forsyth’s latest epic . . . has reverted to the masterly storytelling that has won him so many fans. But instead of going into the past, he has set Icon in the future, and allowed his imagination to rise above the constraints of the facts that he uses to frame every book. The result is one of his best works for a long time, which provides an all-too-real look at a chilling new millennium.”—The Sunday Times, London

“For years, Frederick Forsyth has been known as the man who wrote The Day of the Jackal, the yardstick by which all his subsequent books have been measured. Icon—dare I say it?—is as good or better. What makes this book so special? Because it could easily happen. All the ingredients for disaster are now in place, which makes for a terrifyingly real scenario.”—Detroit Free Press

“A tautly written thriller with a big cast of characters that Forsyth juggles with skill . . . Forsyth’s storytelling ability makes Icon one of the best spy novels in recent years.”—Star Tribune, Minneapolis
