Overview: King of Swords:

The first book of the Assassin series, King of Swords an epic assassination thriller framed against a gritty backdrop of brutal drug cartel violence in modern Mexico. <br> <br>The G-20 Financial Summit is planned for San Jose Del Cabo. The world's pre-eminent finance ministers will attend, along with the presidents of the U.S. and Mexico. <br> <br>Captain Romero Cruz of the Mexican Federal Police uncovers an assassination plot against the attendees. In a roller-coaster race against the clock, Cruz must track and stop El Rey, the "King of Swords" – a faceless super-assassin responsible for a string of the world's most spectacular killings, before he turns the G-20 into a slaughterhouse. <br> <br>King of Swords is an intelligent, rule-breaking rush that shatters convention to create a richly-drawn story that's sure to shock and delight even the most jaded intrigue/adventure thriller fans. <br> <br>+++++ <br> <br>A Q & A for King of Swords with bestselling author Russell Blake <br> <br>Question: King of Swords is a no-holds-barred suspense thriller set in present-day Mexico. What books influenced you in creating it and how did you come up with the idea? <br> <br>Russell Blake: Day of the Jackal, Shibumi, and The Ninja. I wanted to create something that would give a nod to those works, but kick it up a notch – modernize them; crank them on steroids, leave readers gasping & cringing, and revitalize the genre. I saw the G-20 taking place in Cabo San Lucas, and thought it would be an ideal event in which to frame the quintessential assassination thriller, but with a "24" style storytelling sensibility & an unflinching description of the cartel violence pervading Mexico. <br> <br>Q: King of Swords blends fact & fiction...

  1.  A real page turner! 30 August, 2013 On
    I must admit that it is the title of the book that has compelled me to download this book. However, when I realized that the backdrop of this book is not USA or some exotic European location, but Mexico, I lost interest in this book!
    Last weekend, when I had nothing better to do, I thought of browsing through a couple of pages of this book and it turned out to be the best productive thing I have done during the weekend.
    The book, no doubt, is a page turner! Our hero, Captain Romero Cruz leans of an assassination attempt on the Presidents of United States and Mexico. His superiors ignore his incredulous story and are unwilling to help him. The job of assassinating the presidents is given to the elusive assassin, El Rey, who was famous for never failing to complete his job. Would he succeed? Well, that’s for you to read and know. But I must admit that this is a very well written book which I have enjoyed thoroughly!
