Hour of the Assassin Summary

Hour of the Assassin by Matthew Quirk

Former Secret Service agent, Nick Averose, must expose a dark conspiracy in this electrifying thriller from New York Times bestselling author Matthew Quirk.

'Opens with a bang and keeps exploding for three hundred pages' DAVID BALDACCI

His job is to protect them.

As a secret service agent, Nick Averose spent a decade guarding the most powerful people in the US. Now, he's a mock killer, testing the security around the highest officials to find vulnerabilities, before America's enemies can.

But now someone's out to get him.

Nick's latest assignment leads him to the home of a former CIA director. But when he breaches the director's study, Nick is entangled in a vicious crime. One that will shake Washington to its foundations.

He's the perfect scapegoat.

Nick needs to find out who is framing him for the crime and why. If he can't uncover the truth, a dark conspiracy will consume him and everyone else within the Oval Office...
