Assassin's Shadow written by Randy Wayne White as Randy Striker was a great fast read about an ex-SEAL by the name of Dusky MacMorgan. Retired and secluded off a private island near Key West, he is content with the isolation of the sea, until he received a visit from one of his former commanding officers. He was given a mission to assassinate another assassin who works for FEAT. Freelance Extortion and Terrorism.

#5 in the Dusky MacMorgan series. MacMorgan is the hero of a quickie series of 7 thrillers written in 1981-2 by Randy Wayne White as Randy Striker.

Dusky MacMorgan accepts an assignment to protect a terrorist target, an Israeli diplomat, and to assassinate the assassin in a way to send a message. His handler for a change is not 'Stormin' Norm Fizer because Fizer has previously disappeared on the mission. Dusky meets Marina, the estranged wife of a prime suspect, who may herself be a suspect.

Recommends it for: Anyone who follows Doc Ford series by Randy Wayne White
Recommended to Patti by: No one. Found it when looking for more of Randy Wayne White/Doc Ford
This is the first book I have read of Randy Wayne White writing as Randy Striker. I found I quite good and a page turner. I am a fan of the Doc Ford series and this character is not as polished but I plan to read more.

When writing this book Randy Wayne Write was still developing his skills as a writer, and a lot of the concepts used here are later going into full bloom with the Doc Ford Series.

My copy of the book had an introduction by RWW essentially explaining why this book is pretty much mediocre.
