Praise for The Fox
One of the Washington Post’s Best Thrillers and Mysteries of 2018
One of Publishers Weekly‘s Best Books of 2018

“Ingenious, expertly written and a serious look at international conflicts that threaten the future of the world…Forsyth is supremely well-informed about world affairs, politics, diplomacy, weaponry and the mysteries of spycraft. In The Fox, as in all his novels, he lays them out in brilliant detail.”—The Washington Post

“The Fox
is scant on dialogue, leaving room for the action sequences that have made Mr. Forsyth’s novels best sellers for decades. The author’s spooky scenarios are somehow soothing: How comforting to think that bad actors might be stopped by the teamwork of one ‘anxious boy with spectacular gifts’ and ‘an elderly Englishman who sat at the back and remained silent.’”—The Wall Street Journal

“This timely, well-written thriller has it all. Great plot with surprising twists and turns. Intriguing characters. Spellbinding suspense. A fast, tremendously entertaining read. Since The Day of the Jackal, Frederick Forsyth has been considered a giant of the political and espionage thriller genre. This giant just became even more towering.”—The Washington Times

The Fox is essential reading for followers of geopolitical dramas unfolding in the world today.”—BBC Culture

“A terrifically entertaining spy thriller in the classic tradition…Genre fans will be enthralled.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The Fox is just the kind of stunning, relevant, full-throttle story that thriller fans have been waiting for.”—CrimeReads

“The master of the modern espionage novel returns…this is Forsyth at his spellbinding best.”—Daily Mail

“Forsyth deserves his place among the thriller greats.”—The Times (UK)

“Master of the hair-trigger thriller…What makes Forsyth such a great narrator of the espionage genre is his fluency in spy speak and acronyms and abbreviations that make a compelling read all th more authentic. Equally satisfying is the way the good guys are good at what they do and the baddies get their comeuppance. The five year wait for Forsyth’s latest sensation has been worth every second.”—Daily Express (UK)

“Inventive, organized, believable, and absolutely spellbinding…Suspense fiction at its very best and a cliffhanger par excellence.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer 

“A masterpiece tour de force of crisp, sharp, suspenseful writing…It’s an awful cliché to say that ‘you won’t be able to put this book down,’ but cliché or not, it’s the truth.”—The Wall Street Journal
