Publisher's Summary

When a commercial airliner is blown out of the sky off the East Coast, the CIA scrambles to find the perpetrators. A body is discovered near the crash site with three bullets to the face: the calling card of a shadowy international assassin. Only agent Michael Osbourne has seen the markings before - on a woman he once loved.

Now, it's personal for Osbourne. Consumed by his dark obsession with the assassin, he's willing to risk his family, his career, and his life - to settle a score...

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Disappointed"

    I normally love Silva's books. I struggled to like the characters in this book. They did not seem real.

    "Fun read ..."

    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.

    Story
    "A slight departure..."

    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.

    "Good Read"

    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.

    "Left wing political pandering"

    Totally unlisted able. The political pandering made a year plot a total mess. A junk book of the worst order. A waste of time.

    "Very disappointing"

    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.
