Summary

Summary

Six master assassins—each a legend in the dark corners of international espionage—band together to steal a fortune from the middle of a war zone. But the mission goes tragically wrong, and they retreat into the shadows. Now the assassins are back.

Former military spy Judd Ryder is walking to his DC home when he spots his doppelganger across the street, a man who is wearing his clothes and pretending to be him. As Ryder slows to follow, the impostor is killed in a hit-and-run that’s no accident. Was the man the intended victim, or was it Ryder himself?

Ryder soon learns that the key to the mysterious events of the past and to his double’s murder is an infamous Cold War assassin known as the Carnivore. Two of the last people to see the Carnivore were Ryder and CIA trainee Eva Blake, and someone is using them to lure him out.

From Washington, DC, to Marrakech and Baghdad, the assassins wage a final battle—this time against one another—fighting for their reputations and Saddam Hussein’s long-missing billion-dollar fortune. In the end, only one can be left standing. Caught in the crossfire, Judd and Eva go on the run while desperately unraveling the tangled past and battling not only for their lives, but for their destinies.

The Assassins is a furiously wild ride from Maryland to Marrakesh to Baghdad with rich vibrant characters and a surprise twist that will hit you between the eyes. I loved it!” Catherine Coulter, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“There are few writers who can set the scene like Lynds can. The Assassins has everything a reader could possibly want in a gritty, action-packed story set amid some of the most tortured lands on earth and inhabited by killers who can trust no one, certainly not the other killers beside them. This is Lynds hitting on all cylinders with a thought-provoking tale that will surely stand with the year’s best thrillers.” David Baldacci, New York Times bestselling author of One Summer

“Starts as fast as a sniper’s bullet and breaks sideways from Baghdad to DC with neck-snapping high-speed twists.

“This is Cold War thriller writing at its best. Raw, vivid, utterly credible, with palpable tension that never releases its grip.” Peter James, author of the Roy Grace series
