"The prose is slick, and readers will find themselves racing through these pages as the body count grows and the conclusion nears. The Mark of the Assassin is a worthy effort from a rising star." (Amazon.com review)
Musician, composer, entertainer. I travel around Australia presenting clinics on drums and percussion. I write music from my home studio. I love film music and salsa music. Love being with Audible and listen constantly to comedy, thrillers etc on my iPhone when I'm setting up my show, packing the van or driving to and from the gigs. It's my friend in my ear!
Awful narration. Gave up on this one when the fourth rate James Stewart impersonation began. What do these guys think a listener will do when they hear that? Wait for the John Wayne character to come along? Not me, I'm off. This narrator joins a growing black list of story tellers to avoid. Rubbish.
A shallow, unimaginative novel. The plot is soooo cliche'; the protagonists are almost as unlikeable as the villains; and, the ending is weak. The only reason I gave it two stars is because the narrator does a fine job. However, good narration cannot save a poor novel.
Great story- Daniel Silva is one of my favorite authors, but Christopher Lane is an excruciating narrator. All the women sound like whiny harpies, and all the men have a weirdly effeminate sound, with virtually every statement sounding like a question. Almost couldn't make it through the entire book. Will avoid Christopher Lane-narrations like the clap.
Have read all of the Daniel Silva Gabriel Allon series. Needing a spy "fix" From reliable author. I thought I'd listen. Not disappointed. Nice plot twists especially the archery scene on the island. Only wish M Tyler would have gotten her just reward.
This is a stand-alone tale of deceit, national intrigue and suspense. It is only a slight turn away from the Gabriel Allon novels and yet is quite different, involving the “king makers” from all parts of the globe conspiring to make things go the way they want them to go. The real kicker comes in the epilog, at which point I realized that it can either end here, or Silva can begin a new series with this book. I wonder what he’ll do. 4.5 stars.
this was a really good book however I prefer the other Silva books with Gabrielle Allon because the language is not so bad. the story was really good but the language was terrible.
