An odyssey through the art, theory and brutality of modern political murder by Robert Baer: bestselling author, former CIA operative, and, yes, assassin.

What is the definition of assassination? Robert Baer's boss at the CIA once told him, 'It's a bullet with a man's name on it.'

Sometimes assassination is the senseless act of a psychotic, a bloodletting without social value. Other times, it can be the sanest and most humane way to change the course of conflict: one bullet, one death, case closed.

Assassination has been dramatised by literature and politicised by infamous murders throughout history, and for Robert Baer, one of the most accomplished agents ever to work for the CIA, it's a source of endless fascination. Over several decades, Baer served as an operative, from Iraq to India and beyond. In THE PERFECT KILL, he takes us on a wildly entertaining narrative adventure through a history of political murder, interweaving his first-hand experience and his decades-long hunt for the greatest assassin of the modern age.

A true maverick with a captivating personal story, Baer pulls back the curtain to give a glimpse of the underbelly of world politics, and the quiet murderers who operate on the fringe of our society.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Perfect Kill is a meditation on the art of political murder. Baer knows his subject. -- ED CAESAR * THE SUNDAY TIMES *
This potted history of assassination, with its carefully worded anecdotes and sense of absolute autheniticity is intriguing, terrifying and occasionally lightened by the author's drily black sense of humour. -- Russel D McLean * GLASGOW HERALD *
