MWSA Review

Top Notch International Spy Thriller – A Page Turner! When most readers think of great international spy thrillers several authors jump out at you like Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum and Gayle Lynds. Now you can think about adding another name to that illustrious group of authors – Ward Larsen. In his debut novel  The Perfect Assassin  he has found his own place on that literary pedestal of spy thriller genre writers.

The story’s plot is exciting, entertaining, suspenseful, intriguing, and even romantic. The characters are strong and although most of the story is done with a good narrative, the dialog, when used, completes and compliments both the action and plot. The author works it all together into one great story. This book has it all, terrorists, nuclear weapons, murder, spies, heroes, evil bad guys, and double agents. It is a book you cannot put down!

This book begs for a movie version; it is that kind of high action adventure story that would play well on the big screen.
