About the Author

Robert Ferrigno was born in South Florida, a tropical backwater rife with mosquitoes and flying cockroaches. After earning college degrees in philosophy, film-making, and creative writing, he returned to his first love, poker. He spent the next five years gambling full-time and living in a high-crime area populated by starving artists, alcoholics, thieves, and drug dealers, becoming friends with many people who would later populate his novels. Over the next several years he flew jets with the Blue Angels, drove Ferraris, and went for desert survival training with gun nuts. He ultimately gave up his day job to become a novelist, and his first book, The Horse Latitudes, was called "the fiction debut of the season" by Time. He lives in Washington with his family.

Reviews

""Prayers for the Assassin is Robert Ferrigno's biggest and boldest novel so far, a white-knuckle thriller that I couldn't put down. Here is Ferrigno -- gambler, prophet, illusionist, and one of our bravest storytellers -- at his spectacular best."

-- T. Jefferson Parker, author of "The Fallen


""Prayers for the Assassin" is one of those rare books that both educates and entertains. It will make you stop and question everything you take for granted. I literally couldn't put it down."

-- Vince Flynn, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Consent to Kill"


"Ferrigno immerses you in a dark alter-world of paranoia and intrigue in the grand tradition of "Fatherland" and "The Handmaid's Tale." Prayers for the Assassin is close-the-last-page-and-look-at-the-world-differently good."

-- Chuck Hogan, author of "Prince of Thieves"
