author’s comments:
Johnny O’Brien got the idea for Day of the Assassins when he came across his grandfather’s medals from the First World War. This is his first published novel. Johnny O'Brien ives in England and has four sheep and a Springer Spaniel with floppy ears. He is married with three children – all of whom have normal ears.
