From Publishers Weekly
Larsen's competent debut has many of the right ingredients for a successful spy thriller: plenty of action, technical detail that would do Tom Clancy proud, and a hero with almost superhuman skills. When Christine Palmer, an American doctor sailing solo across the Atlantic, retrieves the almost lifeless body of David Slaton in the middle of the ocean, Slaton commandeers her small boat and demands she deliver him to England. A member of Kidon (Mossad's special assassination team), Slaton is the sole survivor of a ship that sank with a super-secret cargo-a pair of unaccounted for nuclear weapons. Double agents within Mossad want to kill Slaton before he uncovers their convoluted plot to use the weapons to undermine Israel's international support. Needless to say, they're soon after Palmer as well. What's missing is that no character, except for Palmer, has an inner life.

The Perfect Assassin is a really memorable espionage thriller. I was drawn into the action from the very start all while trying to figure out who exactly David Slaton was, whether he was the good guy or the bad guy, and who exactly wanted him dead. I love the unexpected twist with the dead wife and child as the impetus for the main character's actions. I hope the author seriously considers turning this book into a movie. The effects and the action would be amazing on the big screen.
