About the Author

Born and raised in New York City, Antonio I Bertot saw firsthand the tragedies of city life. Being fortunate to be raised by loving parents he and his siblings, two older brothers and two younger sisters, escaped the tragedies that befall many who cannot escape the violence and misfortunes of the streets.

Mr. Bertot has always enjoyed telling stories to his kids and their friends and until recently, when a good friend persuaded him to publish some of his works, he never contemplated becoming an author.

Now retired and living in Surprise Arizona, he has found the time to put his stories to print.

This was his first attempt and he truly enjoyed it. He released his second book "The Birth of an Assassin" in 2010 and is now working on his 3rd book, "The Legacy of the Assassin", which is the sequel to the first one.

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.
