Publisher's Summary

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.

Who are these guys and why don't they like me?

David Slayton novel. Where to start, well 2 thumbs up would be a good start, is he a spy, Cold blooded killer, stone mason, tactical genius, expert marksman, man of the world, language expert, and a husband and father.
There is only one problem he is dead, at least on paper, and yet there are a lot of people trying to Kill him again.
Enjoyable feature of this book the author has chosen to let you in on his characters thinking and problem solving skill set, and for me, my interest level rose by leaps and bounds, this story is loaded with insights that many authors never include,
Ward Larson draws you into his story and holds you there all the way to the end.
Well worth the credit and your listening time,

Think Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, and Scott McEwen

Have you listened to any of P. J. Ochlan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to this performer before, but I will definitely add him to my amazing narrators. Good clear voice, well developed accents that are not cartoonish and felt right for the assigned Nationality of the character made this performance a 5 star effort.

Any additional comments?

I discovered this book by browsing some of the other readers recommendations. When I saw a fairly large number (a couple hundred) of ratings and it still had a 4.5 star score, I decided to try it. To my delight, I was hooked.
Early on there are three threads, essentially, that are destined to intersect. An old derelict airliner in the Amazon, an Anglo stone mason in Malta (an island of the toe of the boot of Italy) and a widowed doctor and her son in Virginia. Although the plot may seem like it would be a complicated affair to follow, it is actually very easy listening and the plot is well constructed. With reasonable character actions and responses, well researched detail about aircraft and locations, and fast realistic dialogue, this is a good, captivating listen.
My only quarrel with the story may be a somewhat farcical, forced (maybe, not exactly sure what the right adjective is) last chance engagement between our hero (David Slatton former Moussed agent) and the bad guys with a WMD and the ability to deploy it.
Sorry, but to be more precise is somewhat of a spoiler so I will beat around the proverbial bush. In the end, it is not important since it is still a great story and that is a minor quibble. If you listen and know what I mean, then you may agree. If you listen and have no clue, then it truly is minor and just as well that I I didn't point you in the direction of it.
Add in the 5 star performance of the reader and this is a definite great pick.

Assassin & flight inspector - finally!

I'm very fond of the Flight series but so far not very much so far of the Assassin ones. However in this book author brings Jammer to the plot! This makes it much more exciting. Ward Larsen is an expert in aviation technical details and very good at plotting action stories. This one is up to the Flight series top level. Oh! and did I mention that this book is excellent!
