Set in Mexico, King of Swords: Assassin Series Volume 1 is a face paced thriller involving trying to catch the infamous assassin El Rey. Russell Blake's attention to detail paints pictures that make you feel as though you are right there in the story.

Dick Hill is one of my all time favorite narrators and he gives another 5 star performance here. His accents are spot on and he added even more color to the story.

I would highly recommend this book to friends and family.

Great book made even better by Dick Hill

Dick Hill's performance of King of Swords was top notch. The story itself was about as exciting as any I can remember, and I'll be buying more from this author.
