“The best kind of thriller. . . . Suspenseful, sentimental, and ultimately redemptive, Assassins Anonymous is a can’t-miss novel.” — S. A. Cosby,  author of All the Sinners Bleed

In this clever, surprising, page-turner, the world’s most lethal assassin gives up the violent life only to find himself under siege by mysterious assailants. It’s a kill-or-be-killed situation, but the first option is off the table. What’s a reformed hit man to do?

Mark was the most dangerous killer-for-hire in the world. But after learning the hard way that his life’s work made him more monster than man, he left all of that behind, and joined a twelve-step group for reformed killers.

When Mark is viciously attacked by an unknown assailant, he is forced on the run. From New York to Singapore to London, he chases after clues while dodging attacks and trying to solve the puzzle of who’s after him. All without killing anyone. Or getting killed himself. For an assassin, Mark learns, nonviolence is a real hassle.
Rob Hart is the author of The Paradox Hotel, The Warehouse, and the Ash McKenna crime series, and the co-author of Scott Free with James Patterson. He’s worked as a book publisher, a reporter, a political communications director, and a commissioner for the city of New York. Hart lives on Staten Island.

A firstCLUE Book of the Week

Assassins Anonymous is the best kind of thriller. A kinetic river that moves inexorably forward to a soul-stirring conclusion. Rob Hart has asked the questions I feel we are all afraid to answer. Can we ever truly change? And if we do, can we ever truly forgive ourselves? Suspenseful, sentimental and ultimately redemptive, Assassins Anonymous is a can't-miss novel.” —S.A. Cosby, author of All the Sinners Bleed

“Absolutely wonderful! From concept to execution (so to speak!) Assassins Anonymous sets the standard for smart, compelling, nonstop crime fiction—all told in the resonant voice of a natural born storyteller. I read Hart’s book in one sitting and I am positive you will too. Bravo!” —Jeffery Deaver, author of Hunting Time

“Rob Hart’s Assassins Anonymous isn’t just a great, brutal, action-packed hitman story—it’s a simmering character study that digs deep into what it’s like to struggle with addiction. Few books can balance being a thrilling page-turner and heartfelt personal saga, but Hart makes it look easy.” —Alex Segura, author of Secret Identity

“Hart’s latest wears its myriad cinematic influences on its sleeve. Escalating stakes and precisely choreographed action sequences keep the pages turning… Bombastic whiz-bang fun.” —Kirkus Reviews

“In a novel packed with explosive fight scenes and non-stop action, Rob Hart has written a fresh, thoughtful and surprisingly self-aware lead character in former assassin Mark, who’s trying to start a new chapter of his life. Assassins Anonymous has an emotional center I didn’t expect in a book about a professional killer. As a long time fan of Hart’s, this is one hell of a ride, and certainly his best book yet.” —Jennifer Hillier, author of Things We Do in the Dark

"If John Wick was more of a talker, you'd get Assassins Anonymous:  the ultimate assassin's assassin who's not afraid to grapple with the issue of morality" —Alma Katsu, author of Red London

"As a devoted reader and writer of assassination, conspiracy and black-ops thrillers, I can say without hesitation that Rob Hart has knocked this one out of the park. A perfect mix of unforgettable characters, realistic action, wry humor, and unpredictable twists.” —Steven Konkoly, author of the Devin Gray series.

“A high-speed thriller that manages to burrow deeply into [an assassin’s] past and present—and the future he dreams of. A wild and hugely entertaining ride."—firstCLUE

“Page-turner of the decade! I promise you won’t be able to put down this fantastic novel once you start reading. Assassins Anonymous is an instant classic.” —David Heska Wanbli Weiden, author of Winter Counts

“This book is fast, brutal, and slick—an adrenaline cocktail with a double espresso chaser. So good I wish I’d written it first.” —Deanna Raybourn, author of Killers of a Certain Age
