The Last Assassination by James E. Doucette is an action-packed political thriller. It is an eye opener to what happens among world leaders/government and in the political world. The plot of the book revolves around the US and the Middle East.
The story began when a mis-directed US drone attacked a hospital in Aleppo, Syria. The US was allegedly blamed for this attack. The US military, in a bid to justify theirselves, had no choice than to put the blame on Jesse Plotnick, the drone operator.
To prove Jesse's innocence, his father, Mark Plotnick (a former Mossad member), enlisted the help of his friends, who served together with him in the Israelis army, in discovering the perpetrator who had done this evil. Who is responsible for mis-directing the drone? Who bombed the hospital in Aleppo, Syria? Will Mark and his friends uncover the culprit?
The Last Assassination by James E. Doucette is a vivid picture of the happenings in our modern world. The political race, rift and strife among countries are so real today to the extent that the government is so caught up in it to the detriment of the poor masses. The government in realising this, tends to strive for peace and unity and also to form allies among all nations which, however, some try to sabotage by causing all sorts of mishaps and mayhem as seen in this book.
This book is action-packed and fast-paced as scenes come into view in quick succession. The plot is very engaging with wonderful characters that one can easily familiarize with. The story is filled with suspense as it leaves one gripping the edge of one's seat as the scenes unfold. I was captivated as I read this book and became dazzled upon its completion.
One of the things I like about this book is that it gave me more knowledge about our world, and I'm able to know about places I've not been to in my real life. Scenes of places like the US White House, the Saudi Arabia Palace and its environs are incentives to look forward to in this book.
The author has craftily and successfully woven family life into this political thriller as he weaves between the major characters' family and politics. I also liked this about the book as it further made the reader connect more with these characters.
This book also has its own share of history and wonderful moral lessons for all. I recommend it for lovers of political and action thrillers. Also, to those who wish to increase their knowledge of the world and the tenet of politics, this is the book for you.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It was professionally edited, and good use of English language was employed. The author used words that were simple and easy to understand and at the same time maintained the efficacy of the book.
