We return to the Jack Lark series with its third book – The Devil’s Assassin. I was really impressed by the first two books (see The Scarlet Thief & The Maharajah’s General). However, I feel that this one is the best yet.

After impersonating two British officers in the previous books, Jack Lark’s third charade is discovered quickly (first chapter) by the British intelligence officer Ballard. Instead of exposing Jack as a criminal and thus a sure death, Ballard presses Jack into his service – as a spy hunter. The British are attacking Persia, whose Shah encouraged by the Russians, is threatening their territory in India. Jack’s task proves extremely vital as the Persians seem to know about every move of the British, thus preventing an early victory. The responsibility weighs heavy on Jack who for the first time must focus on more than the normal duties of a British officer. Ballard is aware of Jack’s talents though and offers official papers giving Jack his own name back in return for his services. Jack leaves no stone unturned for the opportunity to return to his life and save the British campaign from sure disaster.
