Product Description

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.

Review

First there was the Jackal, then Jason Bourne. Now meet David Slaton, the Kidon - a highly-trained Israeli assassin who is both hunter and hunted.

A gripping first novel. High octane action. Immerses you in the world and mind of the assassin. Nothing is what it seems.

A stunning blend of intrigue and espionage. A thriller of the highest order. Larsen's cast of characters keeps you riveted to the very end.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Tami Brady HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 8 2007
Format: Paperback
Dr Christine Palmer is on a simple pleasure getaway on her boat Windsom when he finds the sole survivor of a mysterious ship wreak. Unfortunately, the doctor's new companion, David Slaton, isn't exactly the average ship wreak victim. Although burned and battered, Slaton quickly takes over Windsom and directs the good doctor to take him to England immediately. Who is this guy and what is his problem?

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.

I liked this book. The story was fast paced and interesting. I wanted to cheer for the characters because the writer got me to invest in them early in the book and built that connection through to the end.
