In Assassins, Mike Bond takes us from Desert Storm to the early terrorist attacks in Paris. Assassins, is adventure, terror, romance, sex and lies, all in one riveting package; and is a good examination of the tragedies inflicted by politics, egos, as well as fanatics who use religion as an excuse to wreak havoc on the world.

Dropped by parachute into the rugged mountains of Afghanistan, Jack and his team are fighting the Russians who have invaded Afghanistan. Through his well-developed characters, Bond reveals how the U.S. became involved in the drug trade in order to provide arms to the Afghanis, which suggests that Saudi Arabia financed the attacks on the World Trade Center.
Bond also brings up a common complaint of many people: the fact that wars are started and continued by politicians who won’t be harmed in those wars.
What Makes This Book Reviewer Grumpy?
  • Throughout the entire prologue, and the first few pages of Chapter 1, the reader is not given the names of the characters. Only he, him, she, etc., until someone yells, “Jack!”  Additional chapters with different characters begin with the same.
  • Incomplete sentences.
  • Sentences that begin with conjunctions.
