Assassins by Tim LaHaye & Jerry Jenkins

This book begins with a Christian character desiring to be the one to murder the Anti-Christ. Is that ironic? Is it okay for a follower of Christ to want to murder?

Assassins is a quick-paced novel leading up to the assassination of the Anti-Christ. It's one of those whodunit stories where the culprit may surprise you.

This was a fun endeavor for the Jenkins/LaHaye team (Seriously, what input does Timmy have here). I enjoyed trying to figure out who the killer was. I love how this book ends: we know who our assassin is. We sure do. End book.

It's a terrific cliff hanger.

After the story, you get "The Truth Behind the Fiction": added content describing how prophecy is being fulfilled in this era. Of course, all of this new information comes from their own prophecy newsletter so it's going to be heavily biased.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Tyndale Publishing.
