Nor was there a pattern of persons of any particular nationality entering the country from the East over the same period. A number of passports containing various irregularities had shown up, but that was par for the course.

Comments to eBook The Fourth Protocol

Frederick Forsyth came to my attention when in one of the thrillers I usually read, an author expressed that “The Day of the Jackal by Frederick Forsyth was the best thriller ever written, period.” That off course got stuck in my mind and I promised myself to read most if not all his books. I started to read the first few lines of The Day of the Jackal, but my mind was wandering and since I wasn’t sure if that was going to continue I decided to start The Fourth Protocol. Lucky break!

The Fourth Protocol is taut as violin strings and an intricate story made of convoluted subplots, which kept me on my toes as I kept track of every twist. It is unlike anything I have ever read, incendiary and frighteningly plausible to the point of being timely and prescient: it could be equally applied to the affair involving the radiation poisoning of a foreign prominent dissident in London, or the terrorist attack that precipitated a change of the electorate vote in Spain in March 2004. Curiously, Forsyth failed to envision the fall of Communism just two years later.

I learned about the intricacies of Britain's Labor Party, and the interest Soviet nomenklatura vested on the outcome of British elections. Forsyth describes party politics of Soviet institutions with the masterly touch of an insider, letting clear that there was a growing suspicion, perhaps tension between the Politburo and KGB.

At a time in which western democracies are at war with the reemerging Cold War of old, and the perils of radical Islam in expansion, The Fourth Protocol should be mandatory reading for intelligence agencies especially in the West.

This is my second Forsyth book, after I read "Fist of Gd" (I am looking forward to "Jackal" and "Dogs") and it seems Forsyth wrote it with readers like me in mind. This one is much superior to "Fist". I rarely read fiction, generally much preferring books on history, particularly that of the 20th century, but Forsyth has written a very accessible novel that is almost frighteningly realistic. I very much appreciate all the research he has done, informing the reader on matters such as about how MI6 is structured and operates, how the SAS carries out operations, how surveillance is carried out on a suspect (a very tedious and expensive business!) and how security is maintained at the ports of entry of the country, how intelligence regarding national security is amassed and how the intelligence organs of hostile countries relate to one another.
Finally I can attest that he really does his homework as I have seen in his use of Hebrew words which are always transliterated and translated correctly
Highly recommended.

Frederick Forsyth writes novels of espionage and intrigue that enthrall the reader throughout. The Fourth Protocol is no different. Like his other books, it is masterfully detailed without being overwhelming.

John Preston, a latecomer to intelligence work after a career as a soldier, is tasked to find out how the Soviets are acquiring military secrets. That foray will take him into South Africa, and events that go back to World War II. At the same time, in the Soviet Union, two years before it actually imploded, a nefarious plot is developed by the notorious traitor Kim Philby, and sactioned by the Soviet Premier, who views himself as a failure and must accomplish one great event before his end comes. As plotted out, the Communists will cause such disruption in Britain as Margaret Thatcher seeks a third term as Prime Minister that the country will turn to Labour, leading to the hard left hammer and sickle thugs to depose a newly elected PM, who is considered by Moscow as too moderate and thus, simply take over the country, democratic principles be damned. An anti-nuke, anti-American Britain would make it a wonderful world, at least in the eyes of the murderous monolith.

Among the devices to be used to this end is what is called a miniaturized nuclear device, its components brought into England piece by piece through the use of various courriers, Soviet and otherwise. That this would be a violation of a nuclear arms treaty is of no concern to the Premier and Philby.

Preston, loyal to the head of M15 who is slowly dying, is not favored by the presumed successor, who, thoroughly political, has his own agenda and own favorites. With the help of another high British official, who agrees with his analysis, Preston is able to make various end runs around his detractor.

John LeCarre, always ambivalent about the morality of spycraft, even when the good guys engage in it, and whose personal politics are on the Angry Left, called his political opposite, Frederick Forsyth, the best in the business. For once, LeCarre got it right.

The Fourth Protocol is a superb Cold War spy story, set in the mid-1980s at the the height of the Cold War. Without giving anything away, the story is set in Britain. The "Hard Left" has been plotting for decades to effect a legal takeover of the Labour Party. Elements within the Soviet government would like to assist the Hard Left in order to bring about, through process of law, a Communist, pro-Soviet Government in Britain. Therein lies a fascinating and plausible tale of espionage and the stakes could not be higher.

The thing that distinguishes this particular story is its authenticity and plausibility. As always, author Forsyth has meticulously researched every detail in this novel. Everything from the bureaucratic infighting within MI-5 to the details of the organization of the KGB and Soviet government, are simply correct. Nothing in this story strains the readers credulity. This detailed novel is one of those page-turners that many readers will read multiple times, each time gleaning and appreciating additional details of the intricate plot.

This is one of Forsyth's many winners. Recommended. RJB.
