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,

I don't know why they require you to use

Whether accurate or not, the narrators use of accents for languages other than spoken in English, really interfered with the story- at least half the book. But all the American regional accents were fine. This (#3) is the first one in this series I listened to. And if there's a 4th I will probably get it regardless of the narrator.
