Forsyth disappoints.

This has nothing on "Fist of God".

The Afghan relies too much on coincidence and needless subplots that do little to help the flow.

The final Al Asra that is hinted at is so ham handed so as not inspire any terror.

Col. Mike Martin R.I.P.

and with it, hopefully we'll bury the hackneyed snippet found 3 times in 2 novels

"To every man upon this earth, death comes soon or late

And how can a man die better, than facing fearful odds,

For the ashes of his fathers and the temples of his Gods"
