Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author Ward Larsen's globe-trotting assassin, David Slaton, returns for another breathless adventure in Assassin's Edge

A US spy plane crashes off the northern coast of Russia at the same time that a Mossad operative is abducted from a street in Kazakhstan. The two events seem unrelated, but as suspicions rise, the CIA calls in its premier operative, David Slaton. 

When wreckage from the aircraft is discovered on a remote Arctic island, Slaton and a team are sent on a clandestine mission to investigate. While they comb a frigid Russian island at the top of the world, disaster strikes yet again: a US Navy destroyer sinks in the Black Sea. 

Evidence begins mounting that these disparate events are linked, controlled by an unseen hand. A mysterious source, code name Lazarus, provides tantalizing clues about another impending strike. Yet Lazarus has an agenda that is deeply personal, a thirst for revenge against a handful of clandestine operators. Prime among them: David Slaton.

This One Phoned In By Author and Narrator

Not the best story in this series. A bit tedious with story that grinds to an ending. The characters, the author and the narrator should take vacation and come back in a year refreshed with something better.

Somewhat hard to believe

Although the story could certainly happen, the pace of the book was slow and sometimes very hard to follow.

all the other ones were better

not as good as the rest of the series. i reread most of the others a lot. not this one. sorry. Larsen writes very well, but this last novel was blah and depressing. Ochlan great but had less scope for a nuanced reading that he is so great at.

Great Story Line

Great plot with lots of twists and turns. Well thought out characters and lots of action. Great ending with a possibility of a sequel. The narrator does talk like a news anchor, but when he does his characters and especially the ones with accents, he's good. So narration is a mixed bag. But overall, definitely worth the listen!

Why did audible hire Dracula for narration🤦🏾‍♀️

I really like Larsen's books, but this narrator reads like a news anchor. Worst, the "accents" are done in a Dracula type voice. SERIOUSLY - Dracula. I spent most of my time trying to enjoy the story and cringing at his reading. I will avoid all books with him reading and hope they get another reader for Slaton.

The story really good but the narrator was ‘t

The story was imaginative and able to keep my attention. The technical issues were not confusing nor distracting. All in all a pretty good read BUT a better narrative would be helpful.
