Enter a world of intrigue, adventure, magic, technology, and, of course, murder, as the Assassin Without a Name finds himself embroiled in a secret war where all is lost no matter who wins.
The Killing Knife is a compilation of the first three Assassin Without a Name fantasy adventure stories. It includes:
Even for an assassin, death isn’t always the answer.

“So you’ll give me a bottle for sparing your life?” I asked, not amused.
“No! Not one bottle, but a full year’s supply!”
He had my interest. There weren’t many things that would keep me from fulfilling a job, but the syrah had been exquisite: soft on the tongue, satisfying going down, with the faintest hint of spicy pepper left behind.
This book introduces you to the ‘Assassin Without a Name’. He has his principles and one weakness. I will not tell you more about the stories than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.
With The Killing Knife, Scott Marlowe has created a thrilling compilation of the three first tales about the Assassin Without a Name in the series. The Killing Knife comprises three different stories, each gripping in its own way. You get to know the assassin without a name better and better with each story. The Assassin Without a Name is quite a character and I held my breath along the way. I was drawn into the story – hoping to not become his next killing order. This is for you if you like fantasy, crime and – do not object to admitting that a killer can seem like quite a nice guy. 😉
The World of Uhl is addictive! 😀
