A young woman sailing solo across the Atlantic makes an incredible discovery - a man narrowly clinging to life in the open ocean. But the desperate survivor is more than he appears.

There the two are forced into an uneasy partnership as they run from a secretive and lethal organization. The resulting wake of destruction brings Scotland Yard to the hunt - searching for an accomplished killer and a woman whose life has been capsized.

One Shot:
The Kidon soon uncovers the true enemy - a manipulator responsible for the tragic event that shaped him to be what he is. There is only one solution. With deliberate, inescapable precision, he will hunt down the one who created...

    "The Perfect Assassin" wasn't bad. It just wasn't great. It's a book about one or two "lost" nuclear weapons and a corrupt Israeli faction. The foundation of the book had a lot of promise, it just didn't generate a sense of urgency until close to the end. And that's the biggest problem.Israeli assassin David Slaton is rescued from a shipwreck by American physician Christine Palmer. The ship carried two South African nukes that were being turned over to Israeli care--a gesture Israel wants to keep very secret. Once recovered, Slaton commandeers her boat, then bails out in a remote area of the English seaside leaving Palmer to drift ashore elsewhere. Once she reports what happens, however, Slaton realizes she knows something that can put her in danger (he told her about the nukes for some reason) and kidnaps her again. The rest of the book shows David tromping through England, evading the authorities, and mapping out a plan. We also see how the leaders in Israel lose their positions because of the loss of the weapons, how others rise up to take power.I really liked the dialogue Larsen uses and I liked how Slaton--evading British authorities--uses his wits and cunning to bring those he believes are responsible for scuttling the ship and steeling the nukes to justice. He's also in pursuit for personal reasons.Again, the book was well written, the dialogue very believable, and the characters well-rounded. But the lack of urgency was the biggest flaw.
