Ex-Navy SEAL Logan Alexander witnesses the murder of his friend Hamid, a former Kuwaiti intelligence officer, outside a busy restaurant in broad daylight. Hamid’s last words to Logan are a warning to beware Unit 400. Still reeling from the assassin’s brazenness and cold-blooded calm, Logan is shocked to discover that the murder weapon is none other than the knife issued to him upon completing SEAL training – a knife he lost the year before on a covert mission to Iran to destroy a terrorist training facility located in Bandar Deylam. Logan quickly learns that Unit 400 is the code name for the Qods Force, a group of highly skilled Iranian assassins whose roots go all the way back to Hassan al-Sabbah and the Hashashin. Knowing that it is only a matter of time before he and his family become targets, Logan sets off on a mission to track down Hamid’s killer. Will he find Hamid’s killer before the killer finds him? Pick up a copy of Unit 400: The Assassins by T.L. Williams to find out.

Unit 400: The Assassins is a plot-driven, relatively fast-paced read, and works as a stand-alone novel even though it is the sequel to Williams’s 2012 debut novel Cooper’s Revenge. The reader doesn’t have to read Cooper’s Revenge to make sense of the events and story lines in Unit 400. Williams’ background as a thirty-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency is apparent in his writing, and for the most part, he does a good job of keeping the novel from being too jargon-filled. Unit 400 is not as intricately plotted as the novels of Tom Clancy or Robert Ludlum, but fans of Clancy and Ludlum will certainly enjoy Williams’ ability to combine elements of spy fiction and military fiction with a healthy dose of recent current events.
