Assassination has been dramatized by literature and politicized by infamous murders throughout history, and for Robert Baer, one of the most accomplished agents to ever work for the CIA, it's a source of endless fascination, speculation, and intrigue. Over several decades, Baer served as an operative, from Iraq to New Delhi and beyond; notably, his career was the model for the acclaimed movie Syriana.

Does a fantastic job of examining how an assassin thinks. Really puts us in there footsteps and allows the reader to see "terrorism" from the other side. Why people do it. How people justify it and mostly why most Americans can or will not ever understand.

Great narration but story lacked depth and development. Did not meet expectations but was still an enjoyable read. Would purchase again.
