Publisher Comments:

When a commercial airliner is blown out of the sky off the East Coast, the CIA scrambles to find the perpetrators. A body is discovered near the crash site with three bullets to the face: the calling card of a shadowy international assassin. Only agent Michael Osbourne has seen the markings before-on a woman he once loved.

Now, it's personal for Osbourne. Consumed by his dark obsession with the assassin, he's willing to risk his family, his career, and his life-to settle a score...


"The second novel by this author is just as exciting as his first (The Unlikely Spy). Silva writes with intensity, his plots are intriguing and different, and his characters are complex and fascinating. The assassin in this thriller is one of the most ruthless creations in fiction, his missions complex, his victims varied, including an old girlfriend of the CIA agent Michael Osbourne, which makes the plot even more compelling with the connection. Silva creates a page-turner tale of power, politics, and even romance that has all the ingredients of a suspense masterpiece."
