The Assassin s Pitch Book Excerpt:

The incident involving Manchester United striker Moon Woo-jin is so frighteningly plausible that it mirrors our reality. What he does next, is just as probable. After twelve years of professional football in South Korea, Moon Woo-jin’s dream is realized: He is acquired by Manchester United. The striker’s performances in the English Premier League exceed expectation. And life in the West with his wife and newborn son is bliss. That is, until a suicide bomber claims the lives of his family. The authorities rule it as an “isolated incident” of homegrown terrorism, leaving no arrests, no justice, and the footballer devastated. Descending deeper into mental hell, Moon meets his estranged uncle, Gang-won, who is a South Korean gangster. He learns through his relative’s connections that the suicide bomber was not acting alone, which fuels his desire to exact revenge on those responsible. Therefore, Woo-jin continues his role in the forward position for Manchester United as a cover, so he can wage his covert war against terrorism in the media’s spotlight. Over the course of the season as a vigilante, the striker, along with his uncle, navigate the perilous underworld in which the Islamic extremists operate, revealing something profoundly greater than his vendetta. This is the saga of Moon Woo-jin—a footballer stricken by tragedy, a man plagued by demons, and an assassin on and off the pitch.

The Assassins Gallery Book Excerpt:

“An absolutely sensational historical thriller—with an ending so shocking that I literally jumped up out of my chair!”—Max Byrd, author of Grant New Year’s Eve, 1945. The assassin steps out of the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of a raging nor’easter. Cool and efficient, she’s a weapon of war superbly trained in the ancient arts of subterfuge and murder. And even though she’s outnumbered, she’s got one major advantage: No one knows she’s coming. Professor Mikhal Lammeck’ s specialty is the history and weaponry of assassins. But even Lammeck is caught off guard when the Secret Service urgently requests his help: A gruesome double murder and suicide in Massachusetts has set off alarm bells. It’s only a hunch, but all too soon Lammeck suspects the unthinkable. In the waning days of the war, someone wants one last shot to alter history. An assassin is headed to Washington, D.C., to kill the most important soldier of them all: the U.S. commander in chief. As Lammeck and a killer at the top of her profession circle the streets of the capital in the hunt for FDR, one of them will attempt to kill the world’s most powerful man; the other, to save him. And between them, for an instant, history will hang in the balance. . . . Praise for The Assassins Gallery “Provide[s] thriller readers with one of their best reads of the year. . . . The powerful climax deserves the term 'heart-stopping.'”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Ingenious . . . A solid, satisfying treat for the armchair historian.”—Kirkus Reviews “An exciting thriller that rings so true it's difficult to tell where fact ends and fiction begins. Robbins is a master—at the top of his game with this one.”—Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Templar Legacy “If you read one book this year, make it The Assassins Gallery. Mesmerizing plotting, characters you'll never forget, and a wealth of invaluable historical seasoning that make you wonder ... did it actually happen this way? Only one word will do to describe this novel: masterpiece.”—Brian Haig, bestselling author of Man in the Middle “Nobody is better than David L. Robbins at making yesterday feel like today and fiction feel like fact. This is his most audacious book yet and probably his best.”—Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author of One Shot

Hour of the Assassins Book Excerpt:

To prevent the rebirth of the Nazi regime, an ex-CIA agent turns SS hunter in this thriller of deception, buried history, and a far-reaching conspiracy. In the hell of Auschwitz, the devil was named Mengele. His atrocities were unspeakable, and among his victims were the wife and child of a man named Wasserman, who was forced to watch them die. Mengele survived the war, disappearing into hiding in South America, and Wasserman ran too—fleeing to the United States to make a fortune as a Hollywood porn king. Now he is dying of cancer, but before he goes, he wants Mengele dead. To see the Angel of Death hunted down and killed, Wasserman recruits former Vietnam vet and ex-CIA agent John Caine. Caine’s journey into the heart of darkness takes him from a neo-Nazi Odessa network in Paraguay to Jerusalem to a sinister cadre in Vienna and finally to the South American jungles. It is here, deep in the Amazon, that Caine believes he’s met his match—a doctor revered by the headhunting natives, and determined to keep his isolated clinic a secret from the civilized world. But Caine’s mission is only beginning. The victim of a shocking deception, he’ll soon be the hunted, as an unwitting key player in one of the greatest conspiracies of our time. From a master of the spy thriller, the author of the award-winning novels based on the Showtime series Homeland: Carrie’s Run and Homeland: Saul’s Game, this is a tale of twists and vengeance that’s “like a ride on the Magic Mountain rollercoaster” (Los Angeles Times).

The Valleys of the Assassins Book Excerpt:

INTRODUCED BY MONISHA RAJESH, award-winning author of Around the World in 80 Trains 'If I were asked to enumerate the pleasures of travel, this would be one of the greatest among them - that so often and so unexpectedly you meet the best in human nature.' Growing up in near-poverty and denied a formal education, Freya Stark had nurtured a fascination for the Middle East since reading Arabian Nights as a child. But it wasn't until she was in her thirties that she was able to leave Europe. Boarding a cargo ship to Beirut in 1927, she went on to became one of her generation's most intrepid explorers - her adventures would take her to remote areas in Turkey, the Middle East and Asia. The Valleys of the Assassins chronicles Stark's treks into the wilderness of western Iran on the hunt for treasure and in an attempt to locate the long-fabled Assassins in Alumut, an ancient Persian sect. Entering Luristan on a mule, draped in native clothing, Freya bluffs her way past border guards and sets off into uncharted territory; places where few Europeans, and no European women, had ventured. Stark was a woman of indefatigable energy, who often travelled with only a single guide and on a shoestring budget, and who was undeterred by discomfort and danger. Hailed as a classic upon its first publication in 1934, The Valleys of the Assassins is an absorbing account of people and place. Full of wit and rich in detail - and also in humanity - her writing brings to vivid life the stories of the ancient kingdoms of the Middle East.

A psychopathic European assassin, with a dark American past, accepts the contract and arrives in Washington, DC. When the FBI gets wind of the plot, all signs point to Bellamy. But Bellamy is preoccupied with his own personal issues: saving his business, reconciling with his wife, and appeasing his stepson, who has some questions about his deceased father. Meanwhile, the Mafia leaders are becoming nervous as the FBI closes in on Bellamy, who knows too much about their organization. He has to be silenced before he takes them all down. Bellamy must find and stop the European assassin before the president is killed, before the FBI corners him, and before the Mafia's hit men take him out.

The Assassins Gate Book Excerpt:

THE ASSASSINS' GATE: AMERICA IN IRAQ recounts how the United States set about changing the history of the Middle East and became ensnared in a guerilla war in Iraq. It brings to life the people and ideas that created the Bush administration's War on Terror policy and led America to the Assassins' Gate—the main point of entry into the American zone in Baghdad. The consequences of that policy are shown in the author's brilliant reporting on the ground in Iraq, where he made four tours on assignment for The New Yorker. We see up close the struggles of American soldiers and civilians and Iraqis from all backgrounds, thrown together by a war that followed none of the preconceived scripts. The Assassins' Gate also describes the place of the war in American life: the ideological battles in Washington that led to chaos in Iraq, the ordeal of a fallen soldier's family, and the political culture of a country too bitterly polarized to realize such a vast and morally complex undertaking. George Packer's first-person narrative combines the scope of an epic history with the depth and intimacy of a novel, creating a masterful account of America's most controversial foreign venture since Vietnam.
