"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.
I liked Moscow Rules and the Defector better by Dan Silva. This is very similar. In Moscow Rules and Defector the main character is a painter and carrys a 9mm Berreta. In Mark of the Assassin the Bad guy is the painter who carrys the Berreta.
Come on, mix it up a little. Its not bad though
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.
His stories are always compelling, enthralling tales, and his narrators are consistently dynamic and entertaining!
I thought the narrator did an excellent job, and that's about all I can say about this audiobook. Way too many lose ends at the end, felt rushed or incomplete. I couldn't really warm up to the characters either, they were pretty blah. I really enjoy Daniel DaSilva's Gabriel Allon series, but I felt very let down by this story.
Faster pace and more creative plot. At least one I couldn't figure out in the first two hours.
The spoiled brat egocentric First Lady and female high powered lawyer. The lawyer actually compared her court schedule to a terrorist attack.
Not sure but I would have made the Author rework all of the females that I read.
Silva is an author that I have had trouble connecting with via audiobook, maybe I need to try him on kindle.
Very, very good book. The story was compelling and flowed easily as different characters and scenarios played out. The multi-accented narrator was easily understandable so I didn't miss anything! Thoroughly enjoyed by my husband and I.
