The fifth of the bestselling Assassin novels, Blood of the Assassin can be read as a stand-­alone novel or as the continuation of the series.­+++Q&A with bestselling author Russell BlakeQ: How is Blood of the Assassin different than the other Assassin books?­RB: I wrote it so that it could be read by a someone who is new to my work, and unfamiliar with the prior books. In much the same way Da Vinci Code was the second in that series but was a satisfying read on its own, I wanted to try the same thing with Blood - a sequel that someone could start with knowing little or nothing about its predecessors. Having said that, it's also consistent with the prior Assassin novels, so those who have read the series will find that it fits snugly in place.­Q: So would you suggest new readers start . . .

In this second installment in the acclaimed BLACK series, Artemus Black, Hollywood PI to the stars, dives into the rap music scene to stop a killer - with often disastrous and humorous results. Fans of hard-­boiled detective fiction from Elmore Leonard, Michael Connelly and Lawrence Block will enjoy Black's trials and tribulations, all delivered with a tongue-­in-­cheek cynicism that's uniquely Russell Blake.­+++Q&A with Russell BlakeQ: Another BLACK novel. How is this different than the first in the series, BLACK?­RB: Part of my goal in penning these tomes is to poke fun at the entertainment industry. In the first one, the film industry, in this, the rap music industry. In the forthcoming installment, I'll skewer the modeling biz, and then reality TV. It's probably just the people I know and my sense of humor, but I find the self-­importance and hypocrisy in show biz worthy of mockery, and delight in doing so. So different set of circumstances, different mystery, and more character . . .
