Frederick Forsyth (now 81) is a legendary novelist.
He’s sold more than 70 million books since The Day of the Jackal (1971).
The Fox (2018) is a story of a young British hacker.
Weston, an ex-Parachute Regiment soldier-turned-MI6 officer, devised a plan to take advantage of Jennings’ skills in the cyberspace domain, in order to cripple using in programs Iran’s nuclear program, Russia’s intensification programs, and North Korea’s nuclear program.
It got great reviews.
For some reason I couldn’t get into it.
Seemed to me the author was more concerned with making political commentary about Putin, Trump, Kim and others than telling the best possible tale.
