Frederick Forsyth: "The Kill List"

A 44-year-old lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Marines, known as “the Tracker," is the main character in best-selling writer Frederick Forsyth’s newest novel. The Tracker’s orders are to identify, locate and destroy an elusive preacher whose fiery online sermons are inspiring young Muslim men to become suicide assassins. Forsyth has been called the master of international intrigue. His books include “The Day of the Jackal," “The Odessa File” and “The Dogs of War." Diane talks with author Frederick Forsyth about his latest thriller, “The Kill List,” and his remarkably successful career as a writer.
