Praise for Assassins:
“An exhilarating spy novel that offers equal amounts of ingenuity and intrigue.” – Kirkus (Featured Review)
“Assassins is a political thriller with an attitude. But who would expect less from Bond, an author whose books are never afraid to take on the tough issues of the day while directly pointing fingers at those who pull the strings from the shadows? Assassins packs one thrilling punch after the other. But equally important in making the novel an especially memorable one, are the numerous supporting characters… A first-rate thriller. – Book Chase
“Powerful, true to life, and explosive… The energy is palpable and the danger is real… A story that could be ripped right out of the headlines.” – Just Reviews
“Mike Bond writes with an urgency few other authors have been able to maintain. Mailer was able to do it to some degree. Tom Wolfe and Hunter Thompson had their ears to the ground. But Mike Bond has assumed this mantle for the 21st century.” – BookTrib
“Assassins” can be terrifying, chilling and more, but it also will enlighten its readers… It’s an eye-opener, a page-turner.” – Culture Buzz
“An epic spy story… Bond often writes with a staccato beat, in sentence fragments with the effect of bullet fire. His dialogue is sharp and his description of combat is tactical and detached, professional as a soldier’s debriefing. Yet this terseness is rife with tension and feeling… A cohesive and compelling story of political intrigue, religious fanaticism, love, brotherhood and the ultimate pursuit of peace.” – Honolulu Star-Advertiser
“The action is rivetingly present on every page… a thrilling read in which tension never relaxes. It’s so real it’s almost overwhelming… Highly recommended, well-crafted fiction that tells the vivid story of an endless war!” – Crystal Book Reviews
“What a riveting, thrilling, and at times, horrifying book this was… so realistic and fast-paced that the reader felt as if they were actually there… Definitely not the propaganda spewed out by CNN and the other major news sources over the last 10-15 years… It profoundly articulates… the how, what, why, and when we are in the midst of the sickening troubles of, not just the Middle East, but the whole world. This book was earth-shattering for me.” – NetGalley
“Mike Bond is my favorite author and I have read all his books. The action is outstanding and realistic. The suspense flows from page to page… The background is provided by recent events we have all lived through. The flow of the writing is almost musical as romance and horrors share equal billing. I finished the book saying ‘Wow, I wish everyone could read and understand this book.’” – Goodreads
