"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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
