A Lima Charlie Review: Code of the Assassin by Bill Brewer. With a Blast Radius of a MOAB!

Code of theBill Brewer is back with his third thriller featuring the world’s best assassin, David Diegert, in Code of the Assassin. For those just starting this series, last year Bill Brewer blasted into the thriller scene with Dawn of the Assassin (2019), a few short months later, he released Blood of the Assassin (2020). Now, just in time for summer, his third in the series will be here in June 2020.

When we first met David, he wasn’t sure what to do with his life. While getting in trouble with the law, he was encouraged to join the military and get out of his small-town home in Minnesota. He did just that, he joined the Army and quickly found himself in Afghanistan where his unit was conducting illegal for profit off the book’s operations. David found himself on the wrong side of a court marshal and was dishonorably discharged. From there, David found himself in one life or death situation after another, which quickly forced him down a certain violent path. He chooses to embrace the path he was on and went all in when Crepusculous took notice, an organization with global financial influence in every corner of the world with some very big ambitions. They utilized David’s skills and when they couldn’t get him to willingly operate for them, they utilized some brutal means of ensuring compliance.

With a very violent beginning of his story arc, David was constantly finding himself in a situation that forced him to use his skills in order to survive. In Code of the Assassin, this violence takes a back seat in order to build his story as David is thrust into a life of unimaginable wealth. Don’t get me wrong, there is action in this thriller, but not as much as we’re use to. In his last thriller, Blood of the Assassin, Bill Brewer left us with a huge cliffhanger. Code of the Assassin picks up right where it left off and explores the inner workings of Crepusculous, their ultimate plans, their schemes, and exactly how David fits into all that.

Code of the Assassin is an absolute must read, especially for those readers like me that read a series in order and follow the story arc as it grows and develops into something absolutely great. This series by Bill Brewer is one of those and as a fan, I can’t wait to see how far this chaos goes, which direction will David choose to go, what other plans does Crepusculous have to create instability in the world and gain the monetary advantage. Earning itself a Blast Radius of a MOAB! an 8 out of 10 Lima Charlie rating, pick up Code of the Assassin ASAP.
