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.

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.

Love the characters; the story was well-paced and intense, and the writing much better than your typical spy saga This one will make a great film - lots of 'fly-by-your seat' special effects and plenty of intense gun play

Good read but jumpimg from one place to another in the middle of a paragraph is unforgivable.

Details make the story more believable and engrossing. Real world contemporary conflict in the mideast also adds a layer of depth to what is fiction but could be based on facts evolving now. Fast paced and identification with lead characters makes for an enjoyable summer read. Recommended.....

Simply Superb. Ward Larsen certainly knows how to write an incredible Action Thriller. This was such an easy book to read, and very well written. I happy to see that the Author has continued on with David Slaton as a character into a series, as he will definitely be worth following. With South Africa’s society breaking down very quickly, and looking like civil war might break out, General Van Ruut thought it was a good idea to get the last two nuclear weapons out of the country. Since Israel had a helping hand in making the two bombs, he approached them to help him. They managed to get the nukes out of the country on a ship called the Polaris Venture, before they fell into the wrong hands. Now with the Polaris having disappeared off the radar, the Israel’s are very keen to find it. Dr Christine Palmer was quite happy sailing along when she came across what looked like some wreckage from a ship, and it didn’t take her long to spot a man floating on a piece of it. She managed to save David Slaton’s life, but it only took him a day to recover well enough to take over the boat. Christine didn’t have a choice when this strange man advised her of a course change to England. David doesn’t quite understand why the Polaris he was on was destroyed, and he wonders if someone on the inside has betrayed them. When he arrives in England to find his best friend and co-worker dead, he knows he needs to lay low and get to the bottom of why this has happened. It doesn’t take him long to realise that Christine could be in danger, and that he will need to protect her. There is no doubt there will be other agents looking for her, to find out what she knows about David, and the Polaris. After reading this book you can see why so many other readers have given the Author 5 stars for his stories, thoroughly deserving. This really is an enjoyable book from start to finish.

T his book reads at a very nice pace . It's got the Bron Identity thing going. But that appeals to me . I didn't know it was #2 in a series. So I liked the fact that I was able to read this book as a stand alone . I do wish your books didn't cost quite so much .
