    Praise for THE HIDDEN ASSASSINS

    "The Hidden Assassins, the third Falcón thriller, once again demonstrates that few writers—in any genre—can match Wilson's depth of character and plot or his evocation of place and of history."—Boston Globe

    "Modern terrorism is uppermost in the minds of those who populate Robert Wilson’s new novel, but the engines driving The Hidden Assassins through to its satisfying, nuanced finish are old human emotions: greed, obsession, love."—Washington Post Book World

    "A complicated, disturbing novel for complicated, disturbing times."—USA Today
