The Revenge of the Assassin was good, again full of action and suspense if sometimes a little predictable. It is book 3 of the Assassin series, if you count the prequel Night of the Assassin.
El Rey, the enigmatic and most dangerous hitman in all South America and one the most wanted list, is giving Romero Cruz of the Federales a run for his money once more. With no leads and no clues, the Federales have a frantic race against time to prevent the President's assassination
But I preferred King of Swords because there is a lot of 'deja vu'' in The Revenge of the Assassin.
I think to enjoy it better, it is preferable not to read this series back to back as I did. I will leave a gap to read the next one.
But if you are after strong emotions and danger, firearms, conspiracy and an accurate insight of drug cartels in Mexico, this is the book for you. Though it is part of a series, it can be easily read as a standalone. You might be surprised by the ending.
