• The Assassins

    Gayle’s New Spy Thriller is Coming June 30, 2015!

    “[The Assassins] will surely stand with the year’s best thrillers.” – David Baldacci

    Recently retired from U.S. military intelligence, Judd Ryder is walking home one evening when he sees a man wearing his clothes step out of his house. Moments later, the man is killed in a hit-and-run. Was the stranger the intended victim, or was it Judd himself? Searching the man, Judd finds a phone with only one number dialed – to CIA trainee Eva Blake, Judd’s former girlfriend. What Judd and Eva don’t know is that they’ve unwittingly been trapped in a battle to the death among six professional assassins, and only one will be left standing.

    “You get hooked on page one.”Nelson DeMille

    “It’s the ultimate battle of wits…. a master class in suspense.” Lisa Gardner

    “Rich settings, beautifully crafted characters, and a compulsively readable storyline.”Douglas Preston
