Here’s the good news — Ward Larsen’s fifth David Slaton novel, Assassin’s Run, sounds really awesome! The bad news, though, is that it doesn’t actually come out until August 21st, 2018.
Slaton, an Israeli assassin who has long wanted to leave the spy life behind him but keeps getting sucked back into the game, is one of the genre’s most underrated characters. Comparable to bigger names like Jason Bourne and Court ‘The Gray Man’ Gentry, Slaton is well-developed and a ton of fun to follow in Larsen’s action-packed series.

Ward Larsen’s Assassin’s Run revives globe-trotting, hard-hitting assassin David Slaton for another breathless adventure.
When a Russian oligarch is killed by a single bullet on his yacht off the Isle of
Capri, Russian intelligence sources speculate that a legendary Israeli assassin,
long thought dead, might be responsible. However, David Slaton—the assassin
in question—is innocent. Realizing the only way to clear his name is to find out
who’s truly responsible, he travels to Capri.
While he searches, a web of disparate events unfolds across the world. Three
ships, owned by the group of Russians, deliver a mysterious cargo to the shores
of the Arabian Peninsula. In Morocco, a Russian aerospace company begins
flight testing an innovative new drone.
From Switzerland to the Red Sea to Morocco, Slaton uncovers a conspiracy of
monumental scope. It is a plot that will change the world strategic order—and
one that goes straight to the top of the Russian government.
Assassin’s Run follows this year’s Assassin’s Code — which is one of Larsen’s strongest novels to date — and comes out everywhere next August.
