"The book gave me a new perspective on human trafficking. I thought I knew a lot of details about the subject, but the book is filled with new details. The story is long and could take a week to read, if you have the time. But the good news is it's a pace read, and it will hold your attention to keep you turning pages throughout the story. If you like thrillers filled with danger, revenge and life like characters, Birth of an Assassin is the book for you. I found the story suspenseful and well worth the read, and would highly recommend it." -- Amazon reviewer

Set against the backdrop of Soviet, post-war Russia, Birth of an Assassin follows the transformation of Jez Kornfeld from wide-eyed recruit to avenging outlaw. Amidst a murky underworld of flesh-trafficking, prostitution and institutionalized corruption, the elite Jewish soldier is thrown into a world where nothing is what it seems, nobody can be trusted, and everything can be violently torn from him.

Meet the Author

Rik Stone grew up amidst the slum-lands of fifties North East England and left school at fifteen without academic qualifications.

He worked in the shipyards on a local river, spent time in the merchant navy, and went on to work in quarries in South East England.

The time came he yearned for change, so he began to study. Starting with lower level stuff, he worked through to gaining a BSc. degree in mathematics and computing.

But he loved reading and because of it, fiction writing had always been his want. After an early retirement at fifty years of age, he was able to pursue the dream seriously. From that dream came his debut novel, Birth of an Assassin, the first in a series.
