HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION:

Orwell’s Grandchildren (David Forsmark, 9/14/09, FrontPageMagazine.com)

Perhaps the most anticipated popular fiction offering of the year for readers of this column is Heart of the Assassin, (Scribner, $25.95) Robert Ferrigno’s final volume in his trilogy about a future America split by civil war and dominated by Islamic rule.

For readers of the first two books—and please read them, don’t start with this one—there is really only one thing you want to know from me.

Yes, it is a worthy finale to the trilogy.

Heart of the Assassin is a rip-roaring mix of action, social commentary, and suspense, with just a touch of wicked satire to spice up the stew.

For the uninitiated, here is a clue as to just how great Ferrigno’s Assassin trilogy is: Giving a rave review to the first book, Prayers for the Assassin, was part of the indictment against columnist Mark Steyn when he was hauled before Canada’s so-called Human Rights Commission. Recommendations don’t come any higher than that.
