Overview

It should have been an easy assignment, but in Jacob Hamilton s world nothing is. The contact, a middle aged man, left under the wheels of a high speed train, with nothing to show but a folder marked FOR YOUR EYES ONLY. To make matters worse, the target, a Russian petty thief known as Andrei Ovinko, has a secret past, a past that Jacob knows only too well, for you see Ovinko moonlights as an assassin. In his mind Jacob knows once contracts have been exchanged there is no going back on the deal, however there is one, small, fly in the ointment, the contract has been forged. The question is why and for what purpose? Bound by his own set of moralistic codes, Jacob knowing he has no choice, begins the hunt in hope, that by finding Ovinko, he will find out who is behind the forgery. Whether by design or by pure luck, he unwittingly stumbles on a hidden message contained within an old captain s desk submerged in an old shipwreck at the bottom of the Bering Sea, it is this clandestine note from the past that has him asking more questions than he has answers for. Torn between his devotion to the brotherhood and his desire to decode the hidden message, Jacob begins to ponder his own role as an assassin, a choice (or rather a decision) that will have consequences. Instead of doing what his asked of him, he does what is needed of him. For once, his life as an assassin in The House Of The Hidden Blade, becomes a paradox of the man history determines him to be.

Editorial Reviews

Hitherand thee
This novel is very well written to include such an expansive storyline in a story not overly long or complex. It delves into all kinds of personal issues such as trust and family relations, as well as interpersonal relations, and also gets into conspiracy theories, both religious and non-religious. It also delves deeply into numerous histories, religious and otherwise. A sweeping novel in an easy to read length, tis novel delivers it all and then some. Fantastic!
