Garden of Beasts: A Novel of Berlin 1936 by Jeffery Deaver an American hit man is sent to Berlin to kill a German general responsible for rearming Germany. A fast pace book but the characters are psychologically complex. I particularly liked the interaction between the various German officials. The daily decisions about how much to do for the regime is a frequent backdrop to novels like this. It's handled particularly deftly. I'll be looking for other books by Deaver in the future.
