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.

"…plenty of action, technical detail that would do Tom Clancy proud, and a hero with almost superhuman skills."
"There's an assassin on the loose with a clear agenda, and the characters in this thriller reach out and grab you by the throat. Ward Larsen's prose sings, his action crackles and his suspense is riveting. Don’t miss this heart-pounding read.”
―Don Bruns, best-selling author
"A thriller that slowly weaves the threads of various events together to create a tapestry of intrigue of the highest order…"
"Ward Larsen skillfully combines a complex and sympathetic character with a meticulously-researched plot that takes the reader on a breathtaking ride. Starting with the mysterious appearance of the assassin, Larsen controls the pacing skillfully, revealing the plot like a veteran thriller writer, escalating the tension to the powerful conclusion."
―Martha Powers, award-winning author
"The shadows of the great international writers loom large over this ambitious spy novel."
"A spy novel with heart and emotion. The Perfect Assassin is as intriguing as it is exciting."

―Military Writers Society of America
"A high-octane thriller that brings back memories of Robert Ludlum. Larsen knows how to keep the pages turning."
―James Swain, best-selling author
"The Perfect Assassin is a really memorable espionage thriller…the action would be amazing on the big screen."
"Larsen is a welcome new voice on the list of authors that focus on the international thriller."

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.
