Day of the Assassins
A Jack Christie Adventure

author: Johnny O'Brien
illustrator: Nick Hardcastle

series name:
A Jack Christie Adventure

Jack Christie and his best friend, Angus, find themselves at the center of a momentous event that will shape history for decades to come. Their dilemma: Should they intervene? Their problem: Can they survive? Join Jack on a dangerous chase from the dockyards of England to the rain-sodden trenches of the First World War. Will he escape the evil authorities who believe in the mysterious VIGIL Imperative?

"Within the first suspenseful pages, readers will find an engaging historical/science fiction tale that has intrigue, danger, and a little romance. . . . From an explosive escape out of captivity to a much anticipated scene that decides the fate of World War I, the end of the book has plenty of action." —School Library Journal

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.
