Intrigue of the Highest Order

The Atlantic: A young woman sailing solo across the Atlantic makes an incredible discovery—a man narrowly clinging to life in the open ocean. But the desperate survivor is more than he appears. He is a Kidon—an Israeli assassin who forcibly commandeers her boat with a new destination in mind, England. There the two are forced into an uneasy partnership as they run from a secretive and lethal organization. The resulting wake of destruction brings Scotland Yard to the hunt—searching for an accomplished killer and a woman whose life has been capsized.

One Shot: The Kidon soon uncovers the true enemy—a manipulator responsible for the tragic event that shaped him to be what he is. There is only one solution. With deliberate, inescapable precision, he will hunt down the one who created the perfect assassin.

This novel is the first in the series which I've read in reverse order. The beginning is a billion to one happening but otherwise the rest is a credible spy yarn (and love story) with two people you can't help but root for. Highly readable and Ward Larsen ranks as a major talent.

"A single row of huge beeches, their branches void of foliage for the winter, stood encircling the patk, aboreal guardians whose presence delineated the preserve from its harsher urban surroundings."

Ward Larsen: "The Perfect Assassin ".

It is a pleasure to read an author who takes the time to enrich the action plot with descriptive prose.

Larsen builds a good story line, creates characters with depth, and pulls past actions into current motivations smoothly.

Have read other Larsen novels - will read more.
