Boy Nobody/The Unknown Assassin
Boy Nobody becomes the unknown assassin
Just as Boy Nobody changes identities with each mission, the series has changed identities as well. In the U.S., the series is known as THE UNKNOWN ASSASSIN, and the first book, originally published as Boy Nobody, is now called I AM THE WEAPON.
Why did the name change?
The first book received starred reviews and has been sold in more than a dozen countries. Readers fell in love with the non-stop action and suspense. But with new stories in the works and new audiences yet to discover the series, my publisher and I went on our own mission. I was tasked with creating a new identity for my hero. They followed with new art and a new approach for bringing the book to a larger audience. After a lot of work and a few superhuman deadlines, the results are the books you see here.
What if I'm not in the U.S.?
In your country, the book might be called Boy Nobody or something else. This is because international publishers reserve the right to name the book with a title that will make sense (and be exciting) to local readers. In England the book was called "The Hit", in France if was called "The Program, Target 1", and in Argentina it was called "Yo Soy el Arma".
Which assassin book should I buy?
Will you do my homework?
