During this event, Forsyth will talk about his new memoir, “The Outsider: My Life in Intrigue,” in which he reveals that his adventures and personal experiences have been as gripping as any twisting plot line found in his collection of blockbuster novels.

He has mesmerized millions of readers and moviegoers with breakneck, all-too-plausible stories about assassinations, conspiracies, civil wars, arms smuggling, the drug trade, ex-Nazis, mercenaries, terrorism, espionage, and all manner of international intrigue. Now, for the first time, Frederick Forsyth tells the story of his own remarkable life, filled with spine-tingling events that in many cases inspired his fifteen novels, in THE OUTSIDER: My Life in Intrigue (G. P. Putnam’s Sons; October 6, 2015). http://gaithersburgbookfestival.org/an-evening-with-frederick-forsyth/
