I enjoy Daniel Silva's books. He is not a Robert Ludlum; but then, who is? Silva's books have good, well-developed plotlines and keep me interested. This book, Mark of the Assassin features a great conflict between good (our CIA agent) and evil (the KGB trained assassin who is now a free-lance, killer for hire. Thiere is also a very interesting theory that bears thinking about even after you have put the book down.

After finishing this one, I immediately picked up the sequel, The Marching Season, which is shaping up to be equally enjoyable. I feel confident in recommending this book to readers who enjoy political spy thrillers and authors such as Robert Ludlum, Ken Follett, Tom Clancy, etc.
