By Rik Stone

Thriller, Action & adventure, Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook, Audiobook


Set against the backdrop of Soviet, post-war Russia, "Birth of an Assassin" follows the transformation of Jez Kornfeld from wide-eyed recruit to avenging outlaw.

Do children born into poverty become impoverished adults? It happens, pitfalls and roadblocks to advancement are everywhere. But on the other hand, growing up without the fancy stuff can be a great motivator. I grew up poor amidst the slum-lands of fifties North East England, and left school at 15 without any academic qualifications. I served the first half of an apprenticeship in the yards on the River Tyne and the latter half in the merchant navy. Life was without horizons until, contrary to what my teachers had told me, I found I was capable of studying. While working full-time I completed a BSc degree in mathematics and computing, and moved into the IT sector. Fiction writing has always intrigued me, to the point that here I am offering up my debut novel Birth of an Assassin, the first in a series... Enjoy.
