The Afghan, Frederyck Forsyth – 2007
Technology, weaponry and conspiracy are some of the elements that Forsyth manages brilliantly within the plot, showing and explaining the way modern espionage works, with equipment that, despite its sophistication, is prone to failure from time to time.
Keep an eye on: all the procedures described by Forsyth. The almost excessively elaborate strategies adopted in order to fool the enemy. The comprehensive and detailed military knowledge displayed in every phrase – feel the passion of Frederick Forsyth describing ranks, functions, skills and all kind of details related with the army.
If you read this book, it will re-mould your conception of the international thriller novel.
A must read.
