    "Riveting Fast and Brutal"
    What did you love best about Night of the Assassin?

    This book fleshed out El Rey - the assassin. It gives background to how he became so cold in carrying out murder for hire with out a second thought. The things he sees and his own personal tragedies shaped what he would ultimately become.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    I always like Dick Hill. He is an excellent narrator, I found these books by searching for books he has read.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Without spoiling it for anyone yes. when Jasmine tells what happened to her after the murder of her father.


    Any additional comments?

    Really good book, fast paced, brutal at times but believable. I highly recommend this book. If you're looking for something different in this genre you've found it!

    "dont waste your time"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A less ridiculous story


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    BV Larsen


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Like a diamond in a gravel pit Dick Hill is the only value in this waste of time


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Night of the Assassin?

    It is just a flawed premise .An assassin but certainly not as well written as Mark Greaney's or Tom Wood's assassins


    Any additional comments?

    How this gets 4 stars is not a surprise. Look at James Patterson silly inaccurate rubbish but always a best seller.

    "An okay narration. Still enjoyable"

    An okay narration. I wasn't all that keen on the narrator. He sounded a lot older than the character and really slowed the pace down in places for me. I would've loved a more fastly paced story. Still enjoyable.
