Overview

Deep in the Nevada desert, ex-CIA agent Nathan Bitterroot is about to embark on the most daring mission of his life.

His brilliant scientist nephew has just discovered what may be the secret to time travel and he enlists Nathan to test it out in a Las Vegas casino.

When the experiment literally hits the jackpot, they up the ante with an ambitious plan that has the potential to unlock the mysteries of the universe.

Now a crack team of doctors, scientists, soldiers and spies will each angle for their own interests as they seek to take advantage of the mysterious crystal that makes it all possible. But what none of them counted on is Nathan’s burning desire to settle an old score: the cold-blooded murder of his father at the hands of the Mob decades ago. How he seeks to change his past threatens to put everyone in danger and lead to the obliteration of the City.

Through it all, THE GENTLE ASSASSIN, reveals profound insights into the human condition, our darkest urges and basest needs. It’s part science fi ction, part psychological thriller and part spy mystery for a pulse-pounding tour de force that’s guaranteed to keep you guessing right up to the thrilling finale.

    A good read that will keep your interest throughout.

    First, I am not a big reader yet I read the entire book in two days. Well rounded book with elements that tie together well with a good dose of science fiction.
