Trailblazing Author Mike Bond Answers One Question about ‘Assassins’

in Thrillers by

Mike Bond writes with an urgency few other authors have been able to maintain. Mailer was able to do it to some degree. Tom Wolfe and Hunter Thompson had their ears to the ground.

With the Middle East being a melting pot of complicated strife, Bond maps a decades-long war through a military and cultural lens over several generations and characters. For our ‘One Question and Answer’ series I asked…
