The Kill List - Frederick Forsyth

A well constructed thriller that puts an international terrorist known as "The Preacher" for his jihadist, anti-Western internet sermons, squarely in the cross-hairs of "Kit" Carson, who hunts him down at all costs.  Tedious at times due to the main character(s) getting shoved to the background from all the story technical detail, the plot nevertheless culminates in a satisfying, yet somewhat rushed ending.  I am really struck by the overall genre similarities between this one and Forsyth's masterpiece "Day Of The Jackal".  However, where DOTJ is considered a classic thriller, this one falls just short due to the one-dimensional characters.  Still a good read, especially for the beach.
