    action-packed exciting adrenalin post apocalypse thriller

    Following the nuclear suitcase bombs in 2015 that devastated Mecca, New York City and Washington D.C., Americans lost their fortitude most assume Israel caused the pandemic destruction leading to many people converting to Islam in most of the states except the Deep South that remained fundamentalist Christian. The forty-eight states split into two nations, the Islamic Republic and the Bible Belt both are led by fanatics. By 2043, the two theocracies remain hostile towards each other. In that environs, Bible belt leader the rabid Colonel wants to gain control of a weapon of mass destruction that he will probably use to bring hell to the Islamic Republic. Assassin Rakkim Epps is to prevent him from obtaining the weapon using whatever means he must including killing the Colonel. --- The second Assassin tale (see PRAYERS OF THE ASSASSIN) is an action-packed exciting adrenalin post apocalypse thriller as H. Raps Brown¿s muse ¿violence is as American as cherry pie¿ is the theme of SINS OF THE ASSASSIN. Those fans who appreciate mano vs. mano exponential blood counts will enjoy Robert Ferrigno¿s explosive futuristic saga. Those readers who prefer more exploration into two extreme theocracies whose loathing for one another make the Middle East look like a friendly book club choir will need to turn elsewhere. --- Harriet Klausner

    Exciting, a weak word to use for a book as captivating as this one is.

    It was a "chance" buy, but a most fortuitous one. The mid-book of a trilogy, and that fact does not diminish the enjoyment of the story told. The map on the inside cover is what caught my attention. The world I live in is divided into Canada, the Islamic Republic, the Mormon Territories, the Bible Belt and the Aztlan Empire. Canada now has more of the Lake States area, the Capital of the Islamic Republic is Seattle, San Francisco is now called "New Fallujah", Nevada is a "free state", Washington D. C. has been radiated beyond recovery, as has New York. Atlanta is the capital of the Bible Belt confederation; Phoenix, Dallas, St. Louis, Pittsburgh & Newark are "Civil War" sites, Chicago and Detroit are totally destroyed and abandoned. The Aztlan Empire is Mexico and it has taken over or contests an area from Disneyland to Flagstaff to Southwest Texas. The sexually explicit portions were a bit tiring, but brief and used to establish the baselessness of the characters involved.

    The story-line is easily related to the outstanding "Marseilles Trilogy" by Jean-Claude Izzo which occurs in the 1990's, but now we move forward to the year 2043 and see the result of a post 9/11 Musslim-Christian war. I look forward to reading book I, "Prayers for the Assassin" [2006] and book III, "The Heart of the Assassin [2009]."

    Sins of the Assasin

    Robert Ferrigno's Assasin trilogy has been alot of things over the years, as I read it. It went from post-apocalyptic thriller/escapisim to something to think about and finally a place that seems all too plausable and very, very scary.
    We come to know and like or dislike characters that by the 3rd book we care about.
    But there is a little glimmer, barely a flash, of hope that no matter what happens, Americans can and will survive to see another day with a better future possible.
    I truly hope that Ferrigno jumps 10 years further into the future (2050) and we see what the NEW American frontier will be like wth these same chsracters

    I was intrigued

    This series is a real page turner! You need to begin with Sins, then Prayers then Heart. I ended up staying up way too late to read these books and I hated for each one to end.

    I Also Recommend:

    Picks up where Prayers of the Assassin leaves off

    Looking for the future? Do you like non-stop action that makes Jack Reacher look like a Boy Scout? Try book 2 of Robert Ferrigno's trilogy, The Sins of the Assassin. Set in the not so distant future, America as we know it has changed. The scariness of the change to our way of life protrayed in these books is both thought provoking and frightening. Start with Prayers of the Assassin then move on to this excellent action/thriller. You'll be glad you did.
