Publisher's Summary

An astonishing discovery is made in the remote African republic of Zangaro, one which could change the course of a nation's history forever. But such a discovery cannot be kept secret for long and Sir James Manson will stop at nothing to protect this find. A ruthless and bloody-minded tycoon, Manson immediately hires an army of mercenaries and with this deadly crew behind him he sets out to topple the government and replace its dictator with a puppet president. But news of the discovery has reached Russia – and suddenly Manson finds he no longer makes the rules in this power game. A game in which win or lose means life or death.

Good story bad narrator

Good story, but the narrator David Rintoul spoiled the book for me. He swallows his words as a sentence gets longer and then he starts whispering. Sometimes he speaks so softly as to be 'in-Audible'. Must be the worst performer in my library.

As captivating as The Day of the Jackal

What did you love best about Dogs of War?

Forsyth is a mastermind of a political thriller forcing the reader to imagine the unimaginable and believe it. The book is worth every page and as captivating as The Day of the Jackal.

Forsyth at his best!

I have been waiting for this book for years and have not been disappointed.
The Dogs of War is gripping, immensely enjoyable and excellently narrated by David Rintoul. Worth every penny!
Mr Forsyth at his best and I would recommend it to anyone.

How To Mount A Coup.

This is basically an in depth explanation of how to finance, organise and mount a coup in a foreign country. The first part of the story bears no relationship with the rest of it, oh, and never trust a mercenary. If it wasn't so well read, I would have given up half way through.

Another great tale from Mr Forsyth

Gripping, as are all FF’s novels, but a tad more gory than most, this book tells a tale of greed, deception, murder, and mercenaries sent to replace a corrupt African government with another corrupt but more manageable African government.

The reader switches from thev’scare the neighbours’ loud to the ‘What did he say’ inaudible whisper. But he deginitely gives his reading-skill all, throughout.

Highly detailed, intense, gripping. One of the best I’ve read from Frederick Forsyth. At one in the same time sounds authentic and also extraordinary.

A Forsyth Masterpiece

David Rintoul, really does justice to Forsyth's books, the book is very strong in detail (which I like) as it helps you understand the whole story.
The ending was totally unexpected, which was so good as many books are truly so predictable. A thumping good book.

A typically excellent tale from Forsyth

Well thought through and gripping to the very end, this tale of mercenaries and the planning and execution of a coup is full of vivid details and unfolds at a pace that feels perfect. Typical Frederick Forsyth.

Excellent!

narration crystal clear and suitably dramatic. plot and character development rich and satisfying. poignant ending with a very satisfying twist.

most of all the intricate detail and methodology described in mounting a military coup by mercenaries and logistics experts was totally absorbing.

Forsyth rules!
