USA Today bestselling author Ward Larsen's celebrated protagonist, assassin David Slaton, returns for another breathless adventure in Assassin's Silence
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.

An assault team corners him in a restaurant, but Slaton, despite being injured, manages to kill one attacker and escape the others. The remaining hunters chase him across Europe and the Middle East. Meanwhile, at a remote airport in Brazil, members of a mysterious group overhaul a dilapidated plane and turn it into a diabolical tool of destruction. Slaton continues to pick off the members of the assault team pursuing him and the CIA soon connects their deaths with what the agency knows about the refitted plane. Larsen keeps the suspense high as both Slaton and the CIA race to save the world from a horrific plot.
