"This is a brilliantly scripted page turner. The characters are intelligent and show the intricacies of human emotions at their best and worst. You see the reasoning woven delicately by words into their actions and understanding takes place. A book that will ensnare your mind and keep you in its tendrils as you read this fast paced thriller. A great read!" -- Amazon reviewer
Set against the backdrop of Soviet, post-war Russia, Birth of an Assassin follows the transformation of Jez Kornfeld from wide-eyed recruit to avenging outlaw. Amidst a murky underworld of flesh-trafficking, prostitution and institutionalized corruption, the elite Jewish soldier is thrown into a world where nothing is what it seems, nobody can be trusted, and everything can be violently torn from him.
