Read full description of the books:
An engrossing read from start to finish. Island of the Assassin challenges the readers assumptions about the war on terror, revenge, and religion, all the while exploring the complexities of conscience within each of us. Peter Quince is a first-rate protagonist that I hope to see in future novels. The book ends with unexpectedly and almost jarringly, only compounding the challenging nature of the material herein. There is also levity brought by a play within the book based on a work of architectural interest called The 13th Floor.
