Soon to be a major motion picture.

One perfect shot will change the course of history. Christine Palmer, a young American doctor sailing solo across the Atlantic, makes an incredible discovery – a man narrowly clinging to his life in the frigid waters. But there is much more to this desperate survivor than meets the eye. David Slaton is a Kidon – a highly-trained, highly-precise, and highly-dangerous assassin. The Kidon is both the hunter and the hunted, and he and Christine are in grave danger. Will they win in this race against time?With the precision of a sharpshooter, author Ward Larsen weaves an intricate tale of espionage and intrigue.


This book was first released back in 2006, I think.  As you can see in the blurb, it’s being made into a major motion picture!  I used emphasis because I expect it will be a huge hit.

I enjoyed every page of this book. There is not one single moment where the story lags or drags.  High drama and action from a sea rescue on the Atlantic, car chases through London, shoot-outs a-plenty, hiding, escaping and politics!  Always with politics.

Christine and David are opposites in every way. A doctor and an assassin?  Yeah, no way that’s going to work, right?  Wrong. She saved him from an icy grave in the cold Atlantic waters, then he saves her from killers looking for him! Like I said earlier, high drama and action.  And sparks! Two amazing, attractive people on the run? It had to happen.  Maybe.

Anyway, this author, Ward Larsen, wrote a terrific book. I hope the movie is as good.  My advise would be to read the book first, because you’ll want to see the movie.  There are a lot of great characters besides the protagonists.  Pick up a copy now and…
