Ruthless al Qaeda leader Abu Qasim has escaped from the grasp of the Americans and is plotting his next move. International commanders aim to destroy Qasim and his inner circle before he can strike again. But after the mysterious death of a high-ranking official, it soon becomes clear that there’s a leak within the ranks of the Westerners…and that Qasim has turned the tables on his rivals. Now he’s the one  targeting them—and his aim is to kill.

Admiral Jake Grafton dispatches special agent Tommy Carmellini to infiltrate the terrorist plot. He tracks the gorgeous and seductive Marisa Petrou, a Frenchwoman who may be Qasim’s daughter and who may or may not wish him dead.

Who is behind the assassinations of the wealthy and powerful Western vigilante team? Will Qasim slip the noose once again? As the stakes grow higher, and top brass face greater risk than ever before, it’s up to Carmellini to put a stop to a master of terror—before he unleashes even more death across the globe.

Chapter One

WASHINGTON, D.C.

The limo pulled up to the front door of the Hay- Adams Hotel after a short jaunt across Lafayette Park. A Secret Ser vice agent standing there opened the passenger door. The president got out and walked into the hotel, accompanied by two agents. He didn't look right or left, just walked straight across the lobby to the elevators and went into the first one. One agent joined him. Together they rode in silence to the fourth floor. Another Secret Ser vice man was standing there by the elevators when the door opened.

Reviews

Praise for The Assassin

“Exciting…. The action moves swiftly to its Hollywood ending.” —Publishers Weekly

“Tommy has been the star of the last two Grafton books, and in The Assassin he matures and develops into a complex and compelling character that should provide Coonts with many new and refreshing plot opportunities…An abundance of intrigue and betrayals…This is the best thriller that Coonts has written in some time. However, all recent books featuring Carmellini are superb.” —The Roanoke Times (Virginia)

“This book has more twists and turns than an old staircase…Coonts remains the master of the great techno-thriller.”—James Myers, The Entertainment Critic Book Review
