"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)
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.
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.
