The fact that elements of Frederick Forsyth's The Kill List are true makes the novel all the more chilling. The plot centers on a government agency known as Technical Operations Support Activity, or TOSA. It has one mission — to track, find and kill people who threaten the United States. The registry of their names is known as the Kill List. ''TOSA actually exists. So does the Kill List,'' Forsyth claims on the book jacket.
Forsyth’s novel follows a TOSA operative known only as Tracker who's on a mission to execute the terrorist that assassinated his father.
