USA Today bestselling author Ward Larsen's celebrated protagonist, assassin David Slaton, returns for another breathless adventure in Assassin's Silence Every so often, a great assassin novel comes along: Brad Meltzer's The Fifth Assassin , David Baldacci's The Hit , Daniel Silva's The Kill Artist . Now Ward Larsen brings us Assassin's Silence , featuring David Slaton, hero of Larsen's Assassin's Game and the award-winning The Perfect Assassin . When it comes to disappearing, David Slaton has few equals. Police in three countries have written off trying to find him. His old employer, Mossad, keeps no forwarding address. Even his wife and son are convinced he is dead. So when an assault team strikes, Slaton is taken by surprise. He kills one man and manages to escape. Half a world away, in the baleful heat of the Amazon, an obscure air cargo company purchases a derelict airliner. Teams of mechanics work feverishly to make the craft airworthy. On the first flight, the jet plunges toward the ocean. The CIA assesses the two spectacles: a practiced killer leaving a trail of bodies across Europe, and a large airplane disappearing without a trace. The two affairs are increasingly seen to be intertwined. Langley realizes the killer is a man long thought to be dead, and the lost airliner has been highly modified into a tool of unimaginable terror. When their worst fears are realized, Langley must trust the one man who can save them: David Slaton, the perfect assassin.

Enjoyed this book by Ward Larsen have read almost everything he has written. Will be looking for more in the future. Plots well thought out and face paced with strong solid characters. Really look forward to more like Passengar 19 and the David Slanton series.

Wow! My first taste of Ward Larsen and I'll be coming back for seconds. The story seems to run a little disjointed at first (especially with location jumping within the same chapter) until all the puzzle pieces start to fall into place. The plot is quite brilliant and towards the end the suspense keeps ratcheting up and you lose sleep because you just have to finish the novel. Well crafted and an extremely entertaining read.
