Publisher's Summary

<>p>Assassinations, political upheaval, student riots, and conservative rage. In the thick of the Cold War, it was the perfect recipe for revolution, and it only took a gentle push to send a nation toppling into dictatorship. But what if it happened in the United States? Miles Dorn can make it so. A hired killer with no past and no future, he steps out of retirement and sets his sights on the political leaders holding America back from the brink. When they fall, a tyrant will step forward and Dorn will disappear again. But as the death toll rises, he finds himself growing close to a civilian who makes him question his path. Can he turn back before it's too late for him - and America?

Ode to an assassin!

Meet Miles Dorn, a retired assassin who had plied his trade in Central Europe in the ’70s, then moved to the United States to escape his past. In the United States, the time was right for political upheaval, for a coup to shake the very foundation and change direction. Miles was recruited to implement this change. One man, to alter history. Miles’ manager, Eric Heidinger is quite the linguist. His dialogue with Miles always made me smile. He is quite witty and seemed very educated. The hit list, comprised of labor and political leaders, was given to Miles to execute. In the following weeks, Miles met Jocelyn; a politically savvy young student half Miles’ age. I don’t believe Miles had ever been in love, and this growing relationship had him rethinking much of his prior and present life. As we follow Miles, we find him changing, contemplating, justifying, and condemning his choices in life. This third-person narrative is exquisite in its delivery. The excellent narration by Alan Sklar has you present in Miles’ thoughts. This short novel is wonderful, prescience in events that came to be, and the love story; the love story is beautiful and captivating.
