↠´ The Assassin Í Download by ☆ Andrew Britton The United Nations is slated to be ground zero for the next major terrorist attempt on American soil Or is it There is conflicting intelligence coming from an Iranian FBI source that does not coincide with the information gathered by Special Forces in Iraq, and beneath the surface is a cunning enemy that was presumed dead For Ryan Kealey, the threat is not confined to a faceless enemy abroad Someone in his own agency wants him put out of action.
For me the plot hovered between a 3.
5 and a 4 After the adrenaline of The American I picked up the second book fully prepared to get back on a roller coaster Alas, you have to slog through several chapters of careful planning to start getting into the meat of the plot It s not enough to discourage you from finishing, but it comes dangerously close.
If you ve re Assassin by Andrew Britton is larger than your average thriller weighing in at 623 pages in the Michael Joseph Penguin books trade paperback edition Despite the seemingly large length once the story gets going it s a quick read, unfortunately, it s the start which leaves you wondering whether to continue reading or cut your losses and toss the book After about 150 200 pages the story ratchets up, you becomefamiliar with the cast of characters in your head and things start flowing, good action, well place scene cuts etc.
If the start was better it ld be a 5 5 but it s let down badly by its poor opening.
Good, but not as good as the first, third or fourth The first book draws us into Kealey s personality The second, with another female love interest, perhaps came too soon after the first one, and having villain Vanderveen targeting another female close to Ryan Kealey loses its punch If there had been an intervening book, this one might have hadof an impact Also, it reflects negatively on readers that the female baddie plays so small a part nevertheless, her history as presented in book 2 this one rankles readers who may have read the books out of order, in that it is entirely different than the history of that creeps up in the recent book in which she is a very major player A reader who followed the chronology might not have noticed, but I just finished The Operative,so the oversight was glaring Overall I do like the series and will read the current WIP, but it will not read the first in the series a long time ago This would did not grab me nearly as much as the first Perhaps it s because it is based so much on current events that are not quite so current any Perhaps it s because of the overreliance on technical detail that seems unnecessary especially in the first half of the book, which moves extremely slowly Perhaps it s because of the many errors in details, such as the description of using I95 to get from the Canadian border through upstate NY last I checked, that was I90, not I95 The final 150 pages do move quickly and are quite enjoyable I ll keep reading if only for the fact that the subsequent manuscripts are published posthumously after Britton s unfortunate early death at the too young age of 27 This certainly provides an interesting perspective on how the l The United Nations is slated to be ground zero for the next major terrorist attempt on American soil Or is it There is conflicting intelligence coming from an Iranian FBI source that does not coincide with the information gathered by Special Forces in Iraq, and beneath the surface is a cunning enemy that was presumed dead For Ryan Kealey, the threat is not confined to a faceless enemy abroad Someone in his own agency wants him put out of action.

It was OK but not my favorite espionage thriller CIA story.
I agree with some reviewers who said that this story contained one too many escapes.
Sorry to hear the author died at such a young age RIP More Than A Year Has Passed Since Ryan Kealey Prevented The Assassination Of Multiple World Leaders In The Nation S Capital While His Work Is Brilliant, He S Considered Damaged Goods Now He S About To Become A Key Player In A Plot Of Unimaginable Scale For Something Big Is About To Go Down In New York CityWhen A Top Iranian Source Reveals That Iran Is Planning To Bomb The United Nations, US Intelligence Begins Counter Measures Only Kealey Sees It As A Smokescreen For Another, Far Involved Plot But Getting Anyone To Believe Him Isn T Going To Be Easy With Only His Ally, London S Newest Assistant Chief, Naomi Kharmai, By His Side, Ryan Will Have To Operate Outside The Lines In Order To Prevent A Terrible Attack In A City On LockdownA Weapon Of Catastrophic Power Has Been Stolen From War Torn Iraq And Has Made Its Way To The US The Man Who Has It Is Kealey S Nemesis, William Vanderveen, An International Criminal Mastermind Who Has No Objective Other Than Pure Terror And Who Will Stop At Nothing To Achieve It Making Matters Worse, Vanderveen S Being Helped By Someone On The Inside With High Ranking Security Clearance Even The Halls Of The CIA Are No Longer Safe From Possible Espionage And Treason Now, As Kealey And Kharmai Race To Put The Pieces Together, They Will Confront A Ghost From The Past And Be Forced To Question The People They Trust Most In A Desperate Investigation Where Only This Is For Certain Time Is Running Out DEAD IN A NEW YORK MINUTE There will be killing till the score is paid Homer Interestingly enough, one of the antagonists in this book who is a real life person was killed in Syria this year by a air strike However, in the appropriately titled The Assassin , he dies a whole lot sooner by Ryan Kealey s Beretta 92FS The second counter terrorist thriller written by Andrew Britton, The Assassin is superior in almost every way to its predecessor, rectifying several problems and marks the beginning where the Mitch Rapp deconstruction really came into play Now to the review, How much would it cost you to get a second shot at the target which got away The novel begins in Baghdad Similar to the previous book, there s a assassination Only this time it involves the contro It is not often that I read a six hundred page book, that I am not left feeling that with some removed fluff the story could have beenconcisely told Not the case in this book, every page and paragraph was integral to this action packed thriller Another great read from author Andrew Britton.
2.
5 stars And lots of spoilers The character arcs become a littleapparent as they build from the first novel Not bad follow up, but I would have saved the main bad guy for book 3 But once Vanderveen was in the story, it was good that he was out by the end of the book It was getting nearly to the point of one too many escapes that just couldn t be justified when our Big Bad has such depth and breadth in his evil training.
Being picky, I found the gag with the chapter headings mentioning the location to be a bit of a bother when the chapter break occurred mid scene and also when the location didn t change for numerous chapters Not sure what to think about the surprises in the twist ending, but as a reading completist, I ll pick up the next book to find out what happens It seem
