'Forsyth deserves his place among the thriller greats.' The Times

'The master of the modern espionage novel returns . . . this is Forsyth at his spellbinding best.' Daily Mail


Most weapons do what you tell them. Most weapons you can control.

But what if the most dangerous weapon in the world isn’t a smart missile or a stealth submarine or even an AI computer programme?What if it’s a 17-year-old boy with a blisteringly brilliant mind, who can run rings around the most sophisticated security services across the globe, who can manipulate that weaponry and turn it against the superpowers themselves?How valuable would he be? And what wouldn’t you do to get hold of him?

The Fox is a race-against-time thriller across continents to find and capture, or protect and save, an asset with the means to change the balance of world power. Whatever happens he must not fall into the wrong hands. Because what follows after that is unthinkable…

Reviews

Forsyth deserves his place among the thriller greats

The Times

A superb storyteller

Daily Telegraph

Forsyth has lost none of his storytelling finesse and geopolitical grasp . . . this is Forsyth at his spellbinding best

Daily Mail

Forsyth's expertise and research lend a powerful ring of authenticity and he has an almost mesmeric ability to compel the reader to keep turning the page

Spectator

Ripped from today’s headlines . . . Forsyth fashions our contemporary reality into an assured thriller

Mail on Sunday

Mr Forsyth is clever, very clever and immensely entertaining

Daily Telegraph

A thriller that’ll have you checking your PC’s security . . . with plenty of detail on the world of cyber-security and fine pacing and characterisation, Forsyth delivers another lesson in how it should be done

The Sport

The five year wait for Forsyth’s latest sensation has been worth every second.
