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)

    "Somewhat lame story."
    What disappointed you about The Mark of the Assassin?

    The story line was pretty much old boiler plate -- CIA, corruption in government, etc.

    Had more originality.

    No.

    "Weak"

    If you want to spend a lot of time reading a book in which the characters habitually act and think irrationally, this is your book. Not up to the standard of the author's later works.
