The first part of The Negotiator is suspense. The second part of The Negotiator is action.
The Negotiator refers to Quinn. The whole book is about Quinn.
Frederick Forsyth describes Quinn as “The trouble with Quinn was he thought orders were requests. Sometimes he did not agree with them, and he preferred to operate alone – neither a good recommendation for an officer’s duties. He made corporal after six months, sergeant after ten. Then back to private, then sergeant, then private… The career was like a yo-yo.”
After the kidnapping of the President’s son in England, the US government brings Quinn as TheNegotiator.
The first part of The Negotiator focus on the negotiating skills of Quinn. Quinn does nothing, except staring at the ceiling and tries to enter the mind of the kidnappers.
The second part of The Negotiator starts after the kidnappers release the only son of the President. Unfortunately the cold-blooded mastermind places a body bomb on the President’s son, and kills him in front of many law enforcement officers.
Quinn becomes the hunter. He hunts for the kidnappers, and on the track to find the mastermind. The CIA, FBI, KGB, Scotland Yard and MI5 are trying to keep track on the movement of Quinn.
The second part of The Negotiator smells of guns and blood.
The twisting and unexpected turns in the plot makes the story exciting. The ending of The Negotiator is rather surprisingly.
