New York Times Bestseller

A weapon of catastrophic destruction. A nation on the brink of unspeakable disaster. And the ultimate enemy lies closer to home than anyone realizes.

Only maverick CIA agent Ryan Kealey sees the threat for what it really is--but Washington refused to listen. With the lives of millions at stake, Kealey has only one option: to take matters into his own hands. And the clock is ticking. . .

Supercharged and fiercely intelligent, The Assassin is an action-packed international thriller where no one can be trusted--and the final aftershocks are felt until the very last page.

"A terrifying and gripping journey into the mind of a terrorist." --Stephen Frey, New York Times bestselling author of The Chairman

"Like Tom Clancy. . .a thriller that makes current terrorist threats all too real. . .highly recommended." --Library Journal (starred review)
