Israeli assassin David Slaton is sadly mistaken if he thinks he can retire and enjoy a peaceful life sailing the oceans and seas of the world with his wife and son. A four-man team is dispatched to the Philippines to murder him. Slaton has carefully avoided contact with the world outside his sailboat, so the ability of the assassins to determine his location means that powerful forces are behind the attempt. He concludes that he must investigate and neutralize the threat or future attempts will occur that will endanger not only him but also his wife and son.

Slaton’s investigation leads him to Paris. There the attacks on him continue and expand to include citizens at numerous locations throughout France. As the events unfold I particularly liked Larsen’s ability to humanize some of the terrorists. I found myself hoping for the survival and rehabilitation of some of the terrorists.

This is an intricately plotted book with numerous, plausible, twists and turns. Each is foreshadowed with careful attention to detail. Just when you think you have everything figured out, Assassin’s Code is guaranteed to surprise you again. ( )
