An interesting discussion point, and fascinating to see an assassin take the moral high ground on the debate, whilst admitting his actions do not follow that line. Beautifully written to keep the suspence and I think I had as big an adrenalin rush as Alex! Well done. It would be interesting to see a sequel where Yassen and Alex meet when Alex has answered the moral question for himself. I wonder how his life would differ?

Rated: Adults only
Summary: During their first meeting on the helipad of Sayle Enterprises, Alex threatens to kill Yassen one day in retribution for the death of Ian Rider. Yassen decides to show Alex what his future holds if he continues to work for MI6.

Wow! Amazing. Brilliantly written and very believable. I hope you will write a sequel to this one. What will Yassen do when Alex fails to follow his advice? Or will Alex refuse MI6 in your universe - and, if so, what will happen in five years time? Will Yassen return anyway? Well done.

Lovely story but it brought me to tears. Wonderfully written, devastatingly effective. The final moments between Yassen and Alex were so touching, so true, but Yassen was still Yassen, wanting to hurt and kill someone, it just showed his humanity through the killer. Well done.

Great story. I really loved it. Are you going to write more? I really want to know what 'not even' means as well.

Great series. When are you going to continue it? I can't wait to see whether the 'safe agreed limits' will satisfy Alex, or what Yassen will do when he comes back for Alex. Please write more soon.

I love this story. It's interesting to see what others would see in Alex, who don't know his background. I think it is very well written and comes across as being real and truthful. Well done.

Hey, please don't feel disheartened. It's a good story, and well written. I'm interested in seeing what happens next. I'm sure people reading this are just like me: Don't normally write reviews.

If you're looking for critique I can't fault the writing I just don't feel it pulls you in as much as some. I'm afraid I can't advise on how to remedy that. Maybe making it a little more indepth and detailed, although that wouldn't have fitted the characters at this time. Sorry I can't help more but it is good and I for one want you to continue, please.
