In this exceptional follow-up to the highly praised Le Crime, ex-spy Louis Morgon is in France living a quiet life of good food, good wine, and good friends. When his house is burglarized, he thinks nothing of it. But neither the burglar nor the motive for the burglary is as simple as it seems. And the consequences of the seemingly trivial break-in will lead Louis and his loved ones to the ends of the earth—and quite possibly to the ends of their lives.

Praise for L'Assassin

“Literate crime novels don’t get much better than this.”
- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A wonderful read . . . a fresh perspective on the international thriller. Cool writing, exotic locales, and a plot that keeps you guessing until the end.”
- Olen Steinhauer, New York Times bestselling author of The Tourist

“This unusual suspense tale generates the building tension associated with such classic international thrillers as Day of the Jackal. [Will] appeal to both political-thriller fans and anyone who enjoys international fiction.”
- Booklist

“Wonderfully vivid . . . Steiner keeps guessing. A slam dunk!”
- The Washington Times

“Pacy, engrossing . . . a touching examination of the impact of terrorism and counterterrorism on the lives of those involved.”
- Robert Goddard, author of Into the Blue
