9781463782368: The Reluctant Assassin: The surprises come fast and often in this thriller with a new twist - a former KGB operative whom the reader can't help liking. ... edge of your seat from the very first page.

A bestselling novel of intrigue, shadowy politics, and shocking surprises that deftly navigates between the chaotic hope and confusion of post-Cold War Moscow and turn-of-the-Millennium Washington. The action is fast paced, and there’s enough hi-tech gadgetry to satisfy the most demanding fans of techno-thrillers. Each chapter of The Reluctant Assassin pulls the reader deeper into the story as the author builds tension the way a carpenter builds a house—step by well-crafted step. But this brilliantly turned thriller—reminiscent of Ken Follett’s Eye of the Needle—is more than mindless action. The characters are developed, and the reader cares about them. ------------- Vyugin and his friends kept me up past 3 a.m. two nights in a row with my first experience reading a book on Kindle. -Peter Hackmeister, Massachusetts
