Three Cheers For Ff

Mr. Adler: Thanks for linking to the Frederick Forsyth letter–it’s a wonderful missive to our president. There’s a way we Americans can show our appreciation for this good Brit: Buy his new novel, Avenger. It’s getting great reviews. I haven’t read it yet, but I’ve read–I’m counting them on my shelf right now–10 of Forsyth’s previous books. The Day of the Jackal remains the best thriller I’ve ever read. So read the man’s letter, and then read one of his books.
