"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)
It was an okay book. Not great but not bad. Slow as hell in the beginning but overall pretty good. I'm going to try another one of his titles and see if it's any better. One thing is for sure, Michael's wife Elizabeth... biggest pain in the ass I've ever heard. Someone should have shot her in the book.
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.
well written spy novel. a joy to listen to. the narrator was excellent. certainly left enough questions unanswered and key characters alive for a sequel.
This was my first, and last, Daniel Silva book. I almost stopped listening several times as I just got bored. I enjoy Tom Wood, Brad Taylor, Brad Thor, Ludlum, David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, Tom Clancy, Mark Greaney, Alex Berenson, CJ Box, and on... Daniel Silva fell far short of any of these in story development or telling.
The plot - the characters
His character voices were so bad that I seriously considered just giving up on it. Especially the female characters.
I thoroughly enjoyed this spy thriller. Characters and back stories were well developed. Being a liberal Democrat myself, I had no trouble in believing the evil of the villains.
