I was givin this book as a gift and am so grateful.
The story is compelling and kept me interested the whole way through. As I read each chapter I could feel the story intertwining but couldn't piece it together. Great plot twists and amazing characters carry the book.
As I read the book I wondered who would play the characters on film when this is made into a screenplay and projected onto film.
The Author doesn't show novice skills as a storyteller,am anxious to read the nxt one

From the very first few pages, you want to know more. This was such a good story! It goes in several surprising directions. The author does a great job of describing the characters so that you feel as though you know them personally, and you can root for the good guy! The question is...who is the good guy? That is also a surprise. Cannot wait for the next book to come out! I loved this one.

I really enjoyed The Heart Of An Assasin because it kept me in suspense. It kept me engaged and wondering what was going to happen next! THUMBS UP!

I was born and raised in New York City. In 1964 I joined the Navy and was honorably discharge four years later. In 2008 I retired after 32 1/2 years with HSBC. For the past 18 years I lived in Cheektowaga New York and in 2010 moved to Surprise Arizona where I currently reside. Though I published my first book in April of 2009 I have been telling stories most of my life. My kids and their friends were my captivated audiences. I loved watching their faces as their characters (usually contained them as part of the story) came to life in my stories. Recently finished my 4th book, Hell Train. Read Tony Bertot's Assassin Trilogy which consist of the following: The Heart of an Assassin The Birth of an Assassin The Legacy of the Assassin Both reviewers and readers have given me great reviews.

Missing pages in the Nook book so I have no idea how Tyler's mother was killed. I started skipping sections. Just could not finish.

This is one of the most outstanding books I have read in recent years, it is a heartstopping thrill ride from the beginning to the end. The charaters bring you into the book and get you caught up in the events. Worth passing it along to friends and family.
