"[Narrator Amin El Gamal] does a masterful job of animating these desert denizens...What results is a suspenseful treat." — Audiofile Magazine

A novice assassin is on the hunt for someone killing their own in K. A. Doore's The Perfect Assassin, a breakout high fantasy beginning the Chronicles of Ghadid series.


Divine justice is written in blood.

Or so Amastan has been taught. As a new assassin in the Basbowen family, he’s already having second thoughts about taking a life. A scarcity of contracts ends up being just what he needs.

Until, unexpectedly, Amastan finds the body of a very important drum chief. Until, impossibly, Basbowen’s finest start showing up dead, with their murderous jaan running wild in the dusty streets of Ghadid. Until, inevitably, Amastan is ordered to solve these murders, before the family gets blamed.

Every life has its price, but when the tables are turned, Amastan must find this perfect assassin or be their next target.

Praise for The Perfect Assassin:

The Perfect Assassin is a thrilling fantastical mystery that had me racing through the pages.” —S. A. Chakraborty, author of The City of Brass

“Full of rooftop fights, frightening magic, and nonstop excitement and mystery, I absolutely loved it from start to finish!” — Sarah Beth Durst

K. A. Doore got a degree in Classics, and then bounced around doing a variety of things, including fixing bicycles, keeping chickens, weightlifting, photographing saguaros, and went on long, dry hikes in the desert. She now lives in Michigan with her wife and daughter, two cats, and no ghost--yet. The Chronicles of Ghadid is her trilogy debut, beginning with The Perfect Assassin.
