If you’re a fan of Ward Larsen’s bestselling David Slaton series, then get ready—because, on August 18th, the former Israeli assassin returns to bookstores in Assassin’s Strike, the highly-anticipated seventh book in the franchise.
Slaton, who first appeared in The Perfect Assasin, has since gone on to anchor one of the fastest-rising series in the action-thriller genre. Most recently, he starred in last year’s Assassin’s Revenge, which saw him desperately try to pull off a dangerous mission after his family was taken and held until he can eliminate a high-value target.
This time around, David is tasked with rescuing a Russian translator who is the only living witness to a secret meeting between the presidents of Russian and Iran, who are said to be coordinating some kind of attack. But as always, things don’t quite go according to plan, and before long, Slaton finds himself once again outnumbered and outgunned. With the stakes at an all-time high and the clock rapidly ticking down to zero, it’s up the world’s greatest assassin to somehow save the day before it’s too late.
