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...

©2003 Daniel Silva; (P)2009 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

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)

    "Uneven"

    Obviously a first novel being a little uneven but showing great promise, however still a good read.

    "Boring. Flat."

    Kept waiting for the story to begin. Then, in chapter 11 or 12, the author reveals the bad guy and his (their) plan is unveiled in ...like...comic book style, with the head bad guy telling us his full plan. All that was missing was an evil laugh and a vow to his minions that "They'll never stop us!" Yeah...I couldn't continue after that. It just wasn't well written. It was like something you'd find in a grade school library (minus the swear words, of course). Christopher Lane is wonderful, though. Gonna try to get my money back.

    "Silvia's usual mastery."

    Transitioning from his Israel centered series he builds up gradually to a tense climax. All's well that ends well yet he leaves a tag for possible sequels. Held attention to the very end.

    "Not my favorite Silva novel"

    I am very much a fan of most of Daniel Silva's novels, but not this one. I'm glad this wasn't the first of his that I read/listened to, or it might have been my last.

    "Best of the series so far"

    The earlier books were definitely good, but this one stands out significantly. It was great!

    "Disappointed"

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

    "Decent book"

    I thought it was slow but got better as it progressed. Narration was good. Will look for sequel.

    "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.
