From the Author

I'm often asked about the right sequence to read the Assassin series. It's not as obvious as it sounds, so perhaps a little explanation is due.

Night of the Assassin is the prequel to King of Swords, which is the first novel in the series. When I wrote the series, I wrote King of Swords first, and then Night of the Assassin second. That's also the recommended reading sequence to get the absolute most enjoyment out of it, although certainly there's no harm done reading Night first. But Night was written to flesh out more of the central character's back story and the sequence of events that led to him being what he is, and as such, the events have more context in light of the unfolding of King. Still, you can't go wrong reading either book first.

The series runs as follows:

Night of the Assassin - Series prequel
King of Swords - Book 1
Revenge of  the Assassin - Book 2
Return of the Assassin - Book 3
Blood of the Assassin - Book 4
Requiem for the Assassin - Book 5
Rage of the Assassin - Book 6.

I'll warn readers that this series is gritty, and is an unflinching portrayal of the realities of the drug cartel violence in modern Mexico. As such, it's not for the faint of heart, so if you're looking for cozy mysteries wherein a spunky grandma puts clues together, this ain't it.

Hope you enjoy the read.

Russell Blake
