Perfect Shot

On its release in November 2023, Steve Urszenyi’s debut novel, Perfect Shot, was an instant Indigo Bestseller. It has since gone on to be a featured selection in the Globe and Mail and Canadian Living, and Apple Books said the story’s protagonist, Alexandra Martel, is their “new favorite hero—Alex is relentless and dedicated to taking down the bad guys.”

Perfect Shot also garnered three award nominations in its first six months since publication:

  1. International Thriller Writers (ITW) 2024 Best First Novel Award
  2. Crime Writers of Canada 2024 Best Crime First Novel Award
  3. Rakuten Kobo Emerging Writer 2024 Prize for Mystery

Urszenyi’s writing has been compared to John le Carré, Stephen Hunter, Mark Greaney, and Jack Carr. BookTrib called Perfect Shot “a modern-day masterpiece of international intrigue that qualifies as a major debut in this superb international thriller,” and Publishers Weekly said, “Urszenyi is a writer to watch.”

When a friend’s death uncovers a global nuclear threat, a former Army sniper must fall back on her Special Ops skills to save the world.
