Publisher's Summary

The assassination of a Caribbean dictator...The "hit" on a traitor in Beirut...The brutal murder of a young CIA officer behind the Iron Curtain...So begins the game.... It is 1964, the height of the Cold War, and British Intelligence is riding high with its top double agent network: Constellation. But in the secret war fought across Europe the enemy is never far away and soon the agents of Constellation are targeted by an unknown team of assassins. In desperation British Intelligence sends in their best agent to protect the network and hunt down the killers. Jack "Gorilla" Grant isn't your typical Cold War secret agent. Short, tough, uncompromising, rough edged. He doesn't fit in with the elitist spies and debonair intelligence agents. He prefers working at the rough end of British covert operations. But "Gorilla" is one of the best "Redactors" in the business. He's an expert at close quarter shooting: quick to the draw and deadly accurate when it comes to the elimination of traitors and extremists on behalf of the British Secret Service (SIS). He is soon drawn into a game of cross and double cross where nothing is as it seems and even the most perfect spy can die in a wilderness of mirrors. A Game for Assassins is an action packed edge of your seat thrill ride played out across the global stage of the Cold War.

    "Not your average spy novel..."
    What did you love best about A Game for Assassins?

    The narration - the narrator definitely captures all of the various accents, and has just the right sinister tone to carry the reader along with the storyline. I felt like I was part of the story, watching from the sidelines, and was completely immersed throughout the whole book.


    What other book might you compare A Game for Assassins to and why?

    Anything by John Le Carre, Tom Clancy et al

    "Characters fell short"

    forced myself to finish it. Potential for a good story but hard to follow at times. most of the characters were lost on me.

    Story
    "I enjoy long books that move right on along"

    But this book could have been a little shorter if the reader had read in slow motion.this is historical fiction in and around JFK, Castro, and Central America in the 60's. CIA
    And KGB, and who is real and who isn't.
    If you like cold blooded killers. And deception delux I know you will enjoy the story, I just wanted to use a cattle prod on the reader just to speed him up a little
