Assassin is a novel about a young man hunting for a different kind of life than a 9 to 5 job, even though he does give it a shot.
His experiences in the Marine Corps and his ex-wife bring the training he received in the service to the point where he performs what he considers a needed occupation in a terrible world: He becomes an assassin of bad guys for money. Living this way of life changes his already loose interpretation of whom or what is bad.
The Assassin is honest to himself and is dedicated to being the best of his kind. He has no problems with what will most likely happen in his life, being captured or killed. And if given a chance to start all over again, he would still pick the same occupation. Because once you’re an assassin, you’re always an Assassin.
