From the Author
Originally, I'd intended to write an isolated book that occurred with a sniper during a snowstorm. Didn't quite work out like that. But it does snow, and someone does get shot, so at least I was right about that much.
I hear from many fans that the assassin in this book, Alexei Chekov, is their favorite villain in the entire series. I have to admit that he is one of my favorites as well.
This was my most complex and intricate story that I had written up until that time. The Queen won or was nominated for more awards than any of my other novels.
