Book Description

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)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Andrew Britton, a real thriller talent. 6 July 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Andrew Britton is, to my mind, equal in his writing to Vince Flynn and Brad Thor.
    I read this book as part of the omnibus edition available on the Kindle.
    It is a real page turner and as much as I would have loved to read it at one sitting, it is just too long to make this possible.
    It is a great read, full of thrills and emotion. Well written and researched, it moves along at a good pace with twists and turns along the way.
    Clearly, Andrew Britton, deserves more recognition than he currently has and I really hope he gets it soon.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Killer 27 Jan. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Ryan Kealey returns in the second book of the series, still trying to come to terms with the loss of his partner at the hands of serial assassin Vanderveen. After running amok in the Middle East, almost with a death wish, Kealey returns to the Us to discover that Vanderveen has reappeared, and with serious plans to disrupt American influence in Iraq. Fast paced, quite complex thriller that boils down to one issue. Can Vanderveen be stopped before he carries through his plan?

    3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 8 Mar. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Gave it three stars only because there were some good bits but mostly found it lacking in drama that made me want to turn the pages.It was a very difficult book to finish as I was never really excited about picking up where I'd previously left off.
    Would I recommend it?, not really. Was I glad I read it?,honestly no

    4.0 out of 5 stars If you like Mitch Rapp 3 Jun. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    You'll like Ryan Kealy. So sad that the author has also passed away (as has Vince Flynn) at such a young age. The books are fast paced with a field operative who's not overly impressed with the desk jockeys in Washington. The guy gets stuff done!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and worthwhile read 1 Oct. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    A bit predictable at times and characters (not necessarily author, I suppose) somewhat stereotypical in their attitude towards women (including female characters). Still an engaging read overall.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable 22 Jan. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I have not read these yet but fully intend to as my husband really enjoyed them. Imagine our dismay to discover that Andrew had died at a very young age. Such a shame he had such talent.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Another Kealey classic 8 May 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    For all you Flynn lovers out there, it'll never match a Rapp classic but it is a very good read. Britton writes well and keeps the suspense going right through. Enjoy!
