A taut spy thriller… Silva’s writing is clean, his characterizations pithy. And he keeps readers guessing.”
The New York Post

A gleefully inventive series of plot twists…. Silva, who’s debut, The Unlikely Spy, put the WWII thriller back on the map, brings the genre up to date with a vengeance in an exhilarating story that roots razzle-dazzle espionage heroics in contemporary political headlines.”
Kirkus (Starred Review)

Daniel Silva’s The Mark of the Assassin is a worthy follow to his acclaimed debut, The Unlikely Spy, and bolsters his status as a master writer of espionage and intrigue… His wring is clean, crisp, and compelling. He conveys rich images and deep emotions without getting mired in ponderous prose or unnecessary detail. The book succeeds because Mr. Silva brings diverse forces together in a credible conclusion. He tells a fascinating story for, not just to, readers.”
