Overview

A young woman sailing solo across the Atlantic makes an incredible discovery. In the open ocean is a man narrowly clinging to life. But David Slaton is more than he appears. He is a Kidon, an Israeli assassin who soon hijacks her boat with a new destination in mind - England. There the two are targeted by a secretive and lethal organization. Christine Palmer finds herself forced into a tenuous partnership with a killer, and the two become pawns in a high-stakes struggle for power in the Middle East. The key is a mysterious ship and its deadly cargo that have disappeared without a trace. Or have they? The Perfect Assassin opens the world of the Kidon. He evades Scotland Yard and a traitorous cell high in his own government. Soon, however, the tables turn. With calm precision Slaton hunts down the one man who would drive the world to monumental disaster.

    I expect a lot from a spy-thriller ¿ and found it all. In fact,

    I expect a lot from a spy-thriller – and found it all. In fact, I was surprised how thoroughly I enjoyed this book. The characters are engaging, the plot very involved, the action fast and sometimes harrowing, the villains believable, the threats real, and the lead character skilled and ingenious. I had difficulty putting the book down from the very beginning -- a young woman sailing solo across the Atlantic comes across a ship-wreck victim. He turns out to be a highly-enterprising man on a mission -- eventually taking command of her boat with the intent to spare her involvement. He has foreign plots to disrupt and limited resources. The relationship between the two main characters was well-done. As the intrigue portion of the book winds down, the reader is left hoping the ending will meet the build-up – you will not be disappointed. I sincerely hope the author continues this character and genre as well as this.

    GREAT first book- strong characters.

    I loved this book from the start.

    You get a heroine and a hero who work together to make things right. I've always loved the Israeli assasin Mossad type characters. They bring a "winning--ness" to the terrorist type of threats we face everyday. And in this story Ward Larsen doesn't fail. Fast pace writing with a great plot.

    Very good read. I look forward to reading his other 3 books.

    Perfect Assassin blew mw away! I totally got caught up in the characters and the action. As the plot climaxed I had no idea how Ward Larsen was going to finish it, then came the delicious twist at the end. I have enjoyed all of Clancy's, Ludlum's, and Flynn's books, and I enjoyed Perfect Assassin as well as any of the masters'. I hope Ward follows up with more of this quality.
