Publisher's Summary

King of Swords is book one of the Assassin series - an epic assassination thriller framed against a gritty backdrop of brutal drug cartel violence in modern Mexico.
The G-20 Financial Summit is planned for San Jose Del Cabo. The world's pre-eminent finance ministers will attend, along with the presidents of the U.S. and Mexico. Captain Romero Cruz of the Mexican Federal Police uncovers an assassination plot against the attendees. In a roller-coaster race against the clock, Cruz must track and stop El Rey, the "King of Swords" - a faceless super-assassin responsible for a string of the world's most spectacular killings, before he turns the G-20 into a slaughterhouse.
King of Swords is a rule-breaking rush that shatters convention to create a richly-drawn story that's sure to shock and delight even the most jaded intrigue/adventure thriller fans.

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.
