The Atlantic: A young woman sailing solo across the Atlantic makes an incredible discovery - a man narrowly clinging to life in the open ocean. But the desperate survivor is more than he appears. He is a Kidon - an Israeli assassin - who forcibly commandeers her boat with a new destination in mind: England. There the two are forced into an uneasy partnership as they run from a secretive and lethal organization. The resulting wake of destruction brings Scotland Yard to the hunt - searching for an accomplished killer and a woman whose life has been capsized.
One Shot: The Kidon soon uncovers the true enemy - a manipulator responsible for the tragic event that shaped him to be what he is. There is only one solution. With deliberate, inescapable precision, he will hunt down the one who created... The Perfect Assassin.

Possibly the book but not the audio version.
She is probably the worse choice for an action novel possible. She reads it as if a "Valley Girl" were reading a book for school children. The emphasis is often at the wrong places making what should be a serious reaction comedic. I cringed at the reading throughout and finally gave up.
The detail combined with the lighter side of things. The story-line is great and the ending is surprising - nothing left to chance...
I realized how hard and mundane things must be for an assassin - what they give for the cause and how well they are trained.
Yes, he stays long enough with one character so that you can settle into their moods, thoughts and ways, then he jumps to another relevant character, always keeping you guessing, but giving you more than enough information and time to try to figure out what the result of a specific event will be... It stays interesting and provide great insight into different persons perspectives - invaluable to any true student of an art, if you ask me.
It took a chapter or two to get used to her voice when she represented men, but then I really got into it and discovered her wide array of accents complements the book extremely well - which in part is why I enjoyed it so much.
Great ending! Well done! :D
