He was the perfect assassin.
Boy Nobody: No name. No past. No remorse. At least until he began to ask questions and challenge his orders -- until he fell in love with his target. Now The Program is worried that its valuable soldier has become a liability.
Boy Nobody, haunted by the outcome of his last assignment, is given a new mission. A test of sorts. A chance to show his loyalty.
His objective: Take out Eugene Moore, the owner of a military training and indoctrination camp for teenagers. One target. Limited time frame. Public place. It sounds simple, but a previous operative couldn't do it. He lost the mission and is presumed dead. Boy Nobody is confident he can finish the job. Quickly.
But when things go awry, Boy Nobody finds himself lost in a mission where nothing is as it seems: not The Program, his allegiances, or the truth.
The riveting second book in The Unknown Assassin series by Allen Zadoff delivers heart-pounding action and thought-provoking characters, as well as a new, exotic setting; a new mission; and new secrets to be revealed.

You don’t want to follow in his footsteps?” I guess he read my application more closely than he admitted. I shrug. “It’s true he’s successful, but at what cost? Sometimes I think I’m less of a son and more of a tax write-off. Know what I mean?” He looks at me, his interest piqued. “I noticed your father didn’t come with you,” he says. “He dropped me off,

“Something like that.” “Well, I’m not.” “Then what are you?” She looks away from me, stares into the woods. “Complicated.” It’s quiet now, the evening punctuated only by the call of night birds and the distant sound of running water. “Is that a river I hear?” I ask. She nods. “Liberty survives because of that river. It leads down into camp. We use it as our water supply.” “What about in the other direction? Where does it go?” “I’ve never followed it there.” She presses something on her

this big weapon and never uses it, just waves it in people’s faces.” I hear Lee’s frustration, but I disagree. You don’t send kids out on mission ops unless you intend to use them someday. Why risk getting caught? Why risk dealing with the authorities at all? So I think Lee has it wrong, but I understand his frustration with his father. Maybe I can use his frustration to get closer to Moore. “Have you talked to your father about it?” I say. “Ad infinitum,” he says. “But it doesn’t matter. You

same as I did before.” “So maybe it was bullshit. Or maybe he was wrong about what it does.” “Maybe so. But he wasn’t wrong about the chip being there. So what else could it be?” “Let’s take a look,” Howard says. He powers on his computer, then places the tubule on the lighted Plexiglas device he used to scan the SDHC card earlier. A moment later, a magnified picture of the tubule appears on the computer screen. Howard points to it. “There’s a computer chip located here. And do you see the

you?” “That’s a longer conversation,” he says. I watch Father, his face impassive as he scans my body, assessing my health. “You weren’t injured,” he says. More a statement than a question. “I wasn’t injured,” I say. “Then let’s get you out of here.” CHAPTER EIGHTY-SIX I USE A FIELD DRESSING TO WRAP MY BLEEDING HANDS. Then I climb into the passenger seat next to Father. I look out through the windshield. A moment ago the sky looked like death. Now it looks like the opposite. “I haven’t
