Amazon - Todd Rutherford
Only takes one moment to transform an individual, but Theo Gresco, the protagonist has been front and center in many of these moments. A childhood in shambles and innocence lost, Gresco lost faith in trust itself, spiraling down the staircase of crime and betrayal--the only thing he knew. This premise of The Birth of an Assassin, by Antonio Bertot, is enticing and captivating, hooking the reader right from the get-go.

This book is the second in a trilogy, the third is being written now. I read the first one, The Heart of an Assassin, and found it to be a page turner. Then I finished it wanting more. Tony did just that with his prequel, The Birth of an Assassin. From the beginning with the introduction of all of the many characters, the story travels a path of suspense and excitement that kept me turning the page to read more.

When I read the first book by Tony Bertot, I was unable to put it down. The second book was even better. The characters, the plot and the continual "sitting on the edge of my seat" turned the pages over and over. He did an excellent job and I HIGHLY recommend his books. His non stop excitement is addicting, I hope he continues to write. It's a must read! The story line is one of the best I have read in a long time...go get the books!!
