Publisher's Summary

Every so often, a great assassin novel comes along: Brad Meltzer's The Fifth Assassin, David Baldacci's The Hit, Daniel Silva's The Kill Artist. Now Ward Larsen brings us Assassin's Silence, featuring David Slaton, hero of Larsen's Assassin's Game and the award-winning The Perfect Assassin.

When it comes to disappearing, David Slaton has few equals. Police in three countries have written off trying to find him. His old employer, Mossad, keeps no forwarding address. Even his wife and son are convinced he is dead. So when an assault team strikes, Slaton is taken by surprise. He kills one man and manages to escape.

Half a world away, in the baleful heat of the Amazon, an obscure air cargo company purchases a derelict airliner. Teams of mechanics work feverishly to make the craft airworthy. On the first flight, the jet plunges toward the ocean.

The CIA assesses the two spectacles: a practiced killer leaving a trail of bodies across Europe and a large airplane disappearing without a trace. The two affairs are increasingly seen to be intertwined. Langley realizes the killer is a man long thought to be dead, and the lost airliner has been highly modified into a tool of unimaginable terror.

When their worst fears are realized, Langley must trust the one man who can save them: David Slaton, the perfect assassin.

    Story
    "Who are these guys and why don't they like me?"

    David Slayton novel. Where to start, well 2 thumbs up would be a good start, is he a spy, Cold blooded killer, stone mason, tactical genius, expert marksman, man of the world, language expert, and a husband and father.
    There is only one problem he is dead, at least on paper, and yet there are a lot of people trying to Kill him again.
    Enjoyable feature of this book the author has chosen to let you in on his characters thinking and problem solving skill set, and for me, my interest level rose by leaps and bounds, this story is loaded with insights that many authors never include,
    Ward Larson draws you into his story and holds you there all the way to the end.
    Well worth the credit and your listening time,

    Story
    "I don't know why they require you to use"

    Whether accurate or not, the narrators use of accents for languages other than spoken in English, really interfered with the story- at least half the book. But all the American regional accents were fine. This (#3) is the first one in this series I listened to. And if there's a 4th I will probably get it regardless of the narrator.

    Story
    "Worse narration I've ever heard"
    What disappointed you about Assassin's Silence?

    The reader; in his own voice is excellent, but his accents are THE WORSE, every latin... Guatemala, Brazilian have the same horrid stereotypical Mexican Pancho Villa-esque accent. Middle Easterners have quasi semi Irish - Hindu sounding accents. The worse.
    So distracting.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ward Larsen? Why or why not?

    Only if he writes a story with no accents.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of P. J. Ochlan?

    Dick Hill, Zachary Qunito, Rob Shapiro, Richard M Davidson, Timothy Phillips....
    get my point? virtually anyone.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    i haven't gotten through it yet, still struggling with the reader, i guess that would be frustration.


    Any additional comments?

    no.

    "All here characters, story line, twists & narator"

    Enjoyable book. Good character development and likable. Interesting story with twists. I was worried after reading the reviews on the 2 earlier books in this series and skipped them due to poor reviews, but this book was so good I am thinking I will go back and take a chance even though the reviews aren't great, this book is that good. Well worth the credit and listen. I hope there are more in the series with good narration.

    "Good Book, Good Listen"
    Where does Assassin's Silence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think it's up there with the best of them. I thought it started a little slow but half way through, it peaked my interest and kept it till the end. I would definitely try another of the author's books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Assassin's Silence?

    Kill shot from the plane


    What about P. J. Ochlan’s performance did you like?

    Really did. Did a great job.

    "Thank you for closure"

    I love this kind of book! Good guys getting the bad guys. And was pleased with the twist at the end! I read for entertainment and love books where the Hero is larger than life. Plot was satisfactory and narrator caught southern accent just right! Was happy to see Mississippi boys portrayed in a positive light and with their no nonsense way to get things done. Can't wait for next book.
    If you haven't read earlier books, you might want to do this first. It isn't necessary but will help with back story.

    "great book"

    This was a great book. well researched. Took a two or three chapters to really get end to it but the best books seem to always start slow. lots of background getting to know the new characters. Well worth the wait. stay with it.
