Overview

From its riveting start in the night skies of Afghanistan to its stunning end in the recent Paris terrorist attacks, Assassins is an insider's story of the last 30 years of war between Islam and the West. A US commando, a French woman doctor, a Russian major, a British female journalist, a top CIA operator, an Afghani woman, and a Taliban warlord fight for their lives and loves in the dangerous streets and lethal deserts of the Middle East.

Drop by parachute into the deadly mountains of Afghanistan, feel the passion of love when at any instant you both can die, experience the bone-chilling fear of an American agent in an Al Qaeda group and of women who face death every day, fight door to door in the bloody cities of Iraq, know the terror of battle inside a Russian tank - it's all there, all real, in Assassins.

Did the Saudis finance 9/11? Did GW Bush let Osama bin Laden escape Afghanistan and then lie about Weapons of Mass Destruction so he could invade Iraq? Did Obama's decision to leave Iraq in 2011 lead to the rise of ISIS? It's all there, all real, in Assassins.

About the Author

M I K E B O N D is the author of nearly a dozen best-selling novels, a war and human rights journalist, ecologist, international energy expert and award-winning poet. He has been called "the master of the existential thriller" (BBC), "one of America's best thriller writers" (Culture Buzz), "a nature writer of the caliber of Matthiessen" (WordDreams), and "one of the 21st Century's most exciting authors" (Washington Times).

He has covered wars, revolutions, terrorism, military dictatorships and death squads in the Middle East, Latin America, Asia and Africa, and environmental issues including elephant poaching, habitat loss, wilderness survival, whales, wolves and many other endangered species.

His novels place the reader in intense experiences in the world's most perilous places, in dangerous liaisons, political and corporate conspiracies, wars and revolutions, making "readers sweat with [their] relentless pace" (Kirkus) "in that fatalistic margin where life and death are one and the existential reality leaves one caring only to survive." (Sunday Oregonian).

He has climbed mountains on every continent and trekked more than 50,000 miles in the Himalayas, Mongolia, Russia, Europe, New Zealand, North and South America, and Africa.
