Read full description of the books Devil's Alternative:
The brief paragraph on the front page of Lloyd's list of shipping news went pretty much unnoticed.
But there is one reader, Andrew Drake, senior clerk in a London firm of chartered shipbrokers, for whom that paragraph will have more than passing interest. As it turns out, the man discovered unconscious and near-dead in the Black Sea off the coast of Turkey is a refugee Ukrainian partisan.
Drake meets the survivor and suddenly finds he is party to international terror and intrigue.
"A good long -- possibly prophetic -- read, and exciting enough to make you sweat." (The Daily Mail)
Read information about the authorFrederick Forsyth, CBE is an English author and occasional political commentator. He is best known for thrillers such as The Day of the Jackal, The Odessa File, The Fourth Protocol, The Dogs of War, The Devil's Alternative, The Fist of God, Icon, The Veteran, Avenger, The Afghan, and recently The Cobra and The Kill List.
The son of a furrier, he was born in Ashford, Kent, educated at Tonbridge School and later attended the University of Granada. He became one of the youngest pilots in the Royal Air Force at 19, where he served on National Service from 1956 to 1958. Becoming a journalist, he joined Reuters in 1961 and later the BBC in 1965, where he served as an assistant diplomatic correspondent. From July to September 1967, he served as a correspondent covering the Nigerian Civil War between the region of Biafra and Nigeria. He left the BBC in 1968 after controversy arose over his alleged bias towards the Biafran cause and accusations that he falsified segments of his reports. Returning to Biafra as a freelance reporter, Forsyth wrote his first book, The Biafra Story in 1969.
Forsyth decided to write a novel using similar research techniques to those used in journalism. His first full length novel, The Day of the Jackal, was published in 1971 and became an international bestseller and gained its author the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel. It was later made into a film of the same name.
