The Assassins' Village

Author: Faith Mortimer
Published: 2011
Genre: Suspense/Thriller
Pinky’s Rating (out of 5): 5 stars

I have to admit this book took me quite a bit longer to read than normal. Not because it wasn’t well written, but because the story was so in depth and intriguing I needed to give my brain time to process all the twists and turns woven into the storyline.
Set in a picturesque Cypriot village, our lead character, Diana Rivers a writer and amateur sleuth, sets out to uncover the truth when expatriate Leslie is found dead. Along the way she becomes involved in the interwoven lives of those in the village, both local and other expatriates, and their connection to Leslie, and how he has irreparably damaged the lives of all those around him.
This amazingly well written tale of mystery and intrigue will keep you guessing until the last page, and just when you think you know the answer, will add yet another twist to the tale.
