Win a copy of the latest master class in suspense

Win one of five copies of The Assassins by Gayle Lynds

A rollercoaster of action and suspense is how one critic has described the latest novel by award-winning author Gayle Hinds.

The Assassins is a 'master class in suspense, where plot twists abound and danger is always closer than you think' is how another review described the new crime fiction book.

It tells the story of Judd Ryder, recently retired from US military intelligence, who as he walks home one evening 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 dialled - 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 against six professional assassins, and only one will be left standing.
