Assassination is one of the deadliest tools in modern politics. In a fascinating exploration of this dark art, from Julius Caesar to the present day, and a compelling history of hitmen, assassinations, and the men who command them, expert Richard Bellfield looks at hits that have changed the course of history, and how some of the most spectacular operations were carried out from the early planning stages to the most crucial of cover-ups.
