"A high-octane thriller from Ward Larsen, the author of The Perfect Assassin. David Slaton has a good life. He has a new wife and a house in the Virginia suburbs. But he also has a dark past. Slaton is a former kidon, the most lethal Israeli assassin ever created. After decades of work, a brilliant scientist has taken Iran to the threshold of its dream--a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile. Mossad must eliminate the man, but with a spy lurking high in its ranks there is only one option: bring back Slaton. The kidon has vowed to never kill again, but when his wife is attacked and forced to flee across Europe, events force his hand. Slaton plots to assassinate one of the most closely guarded men on earth. Success is improbable. Survival unlikely. Only when he learns the labyrinthine truth does Slaton see one high-stakes chance. A chance for an assassin's game"--Provided by publisher.

I read this story second though it is an earlier one in the David Slaton series. Ward Larsen is a terrific writer who doesn't share David Silva's view of the high morality of Mossad though one suspects that Larsen's view is much closer to the truth. Gripping and intense, this is a very satisfying read and highly recommended for espionage fans.

I skipped /read about 1/3 of the book before I lost interest! Why do some authors think that a 450-500 page story makes up for a good storyline?

Iran nuclear program, mossad, international locals, crafty detective and a retired assassin. Fast moving plot with lots of intrigue. Highly recommended.
