The stunning new thriller from the grandmaster of international intrigue
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...
“The Cobra creates a vividly cinematic picture of the worldwide cocaine trade. Forsyth has recharged his batteries, producing his most ambitious novel in years by reproducing the minutely organised detail of his most famous book.”
Barry Forshaw, Daily Express
“As ever with Forsyth, there is an impressive command of armed weaponry as well as an utterly believable story that moves along at a breakneck pace...Extraordinarily impressive.”
“Forsyth has produced his most ambitious book in years, reproducing the minutely organised detail of The Day of the Jackal.”
Good Book Guide
