A truly mesmerizinga powerful, forward driving plot and lots of brutality I loved it, and I know why I consider this author one of my favourites.To reveal , particularly details of a hair raising climax, would be to destroy the reader s enjoyment, but like the rest of this first class piece of action work, it s ingenious and delivered with all the subtlety of a kick in the teeth Victor is just

work, it s ingenious and delivered with all the subtlety of a kick in the teeth Victor is just a great leading character, a rogue but a likable rogue and he matchs all fiction characters around at the moment.Tom Wood fills the books with great strong characters, great plot and sub plots, tension, huge shocks, great details, it is like being on a rollercoaster ride, the whole book that is so hard to put down that travels around the globe with details of so many different countries.I can only say to you, read this book, read ALL his books This book comes came very close to getting a 5 star rating I ll tell you why I dropped a star in a few lines.Sosecond book about Victor the Assassin He s now, but wait if you haven t read the first book that might be a spoiler so, hummmm..let s see He s operating a little differently than he was in the first novel.Anyway, he s still an interesting character who s written well and draws the reader right into his story I suspect that even if you picked this up without ever having re This book comes came very close to getting a 5 star rating I ll tell you why I dropped a star in a few lines.Sosecond book about Victor the Assassin He s now, but wait if you haven t read the first book that might be a spoiler so, hummmm..let s see He s operating a little differently than he was in the first novel.Anyway, he s still an interesting character who s written well and draws the reader right into his story I suspect that even if you picked this up without ever having read the first book you d still like it, get involved and want to follow the story Without giving a spoiler I d say that I can recommend this and if you like thrillers you ll probably like this.Nowspecifics The book opens with reference to the first book and we re off to the races The plot grows naturally from our earlier information even if we do need to buy into the world view and our protagonist s existence I was drawn in completely and having liked the first book I found this one just as absorbing.So, why did i drop a star The book is drawn out into several story lines that intertwine This isn t truly a problem as the intertwining is handled very well Howeverthere is a point where the book bogs down just a little With things happening around the world and the details being complementary things just slowed way down It didn t ruin the book It didn t cause mt to lose interest as has happened in some books BUT it did for a short time screw up the pacing of the entire novel It didn t last, it didn t really hurt the book But it was a slightly false note and I finally decided I had to drop the book to 4 possibly 4.5 stars.That said and aside from the fact that I m always astounded that I like and am interested in a book about an assassin I can and do recommend this one Good book, enjoy Victor is back Tom Wood burst onto the scene last year with his debut novel The Hunter Introducing a new anti hero in Victor, an assassin for hire, The Hunter was a lesson in action thriller writing Following such an excellent debut is no easy task After the explosive first chapter however, any worries about Wood living up to the high standard he set last year disappear From the first page, it s clear you re in safe hands Wood has an innate sense of how to tell an intricate story, with Victor is back Tom Wood burst onto the scene last year with his debut novel The Hunter Introducing a new anti hero in Victor, an assassin for hire, The Hunter was a lesson in action thriller writing Following such an excellent debut is no easy task After the explosive first chapter however, any worries about Wood living up to the high standard he set last year disappear From the first page, it s clear you re in safe hands Wood has an innate sense of how to tell an intricate story, with the plot strands weaving together to create an expansive story set in a number of different countries Now, for a little confessionI generally dislike books in this genre But, in the same vein of my enjoying Matt Hilton s series of Joe Hunter books, Tom Wood has created an incredible way of telling this kind of story, which allows a reader to suspend their disbelief throughout You ll go with Victor on his journey, wherever it takes you, purely due to the fact Wood is a quite mesmerising writer His prose is sparse yet absorbing, with an excellent knack for description and detail which never intrudes on the story.More aspects of Victor s personality are revealed in The Enemy , his intelligence coming to the fore in this tale Always one step ahead of his enemy, there s a reason why he s stayed alive for so long On the surface, he s an evil man Killing without emotion or reason Yet, you can t help but root for him as he becomes the target, which is a real skill with this type of character A fast paced, thrill ride of a novel, The Enemy firmly puts Tom Wood at the top echelons of his genre Great characterisation, complex yet eminently readable, and so suspenseful, it will keep you up all night turning the next page until the end This was a joy to read, and I can t wait for the next instalment This is a truly great read featuring an unforgettable character named, Victor once a hit man for the British, he is now obligated to work for the CIA Let s just say that in the good old days, when Victor was loving the fact he was a freelance assassin, he would always be given at least two week s notice to perform his duties This would give him the time to find a good location, locate the best weapon to use in order to get the job done right, and research everything there was to know abut the This is a truly great read featuring an unforgettable character named, Victor once a hit man for the British, he is now obligated to work for the CIA Let s just say that in the good old days, when Victor was loving the fact he was a freelance assassin, he would always be given at least two week s notice to perform his duties This would give him the time to find a good location, locate the best weapon to use in order to get the job done right, and research everything there was to know abut the city so that he could draw up an excellent escape route that was absolutely fool proof.But now times have changed With Victor s new employer, he s looking at a whole new world that basically has him extremely worried considering the fact that the CIA plays by their own rules For his assignment, Victor is given a list of three targets that are to be killed immediately What originally promises to be an easy assignment for Victor, becomes absolute chaos and tosses him into trouble where he literally finds that he cannot trust anyone, especially his new employers With the CIA comes a time clock, which gives Victor approximately two days to finalize his planning Having to travel to Romania, Russia and on to Washington, D.C in order to carry out the assignments, Victor has very little research time and no longer feels like anything is fool proof Add to that the fact that he must deal with a little romance that sparks up with an old girlfriend a woman who has no idea what his job entails and ends up being put in danger and Victor is definitely running around like an assassin with his head cut off Warning The reader must pay close attention to this one, as Victor is constantly chasing, or being chased, while locating his targets before he becomes a target himself Benefit The exact same as the warning This is a thriller to the nth degree and never once can be called boring Readers will crave to see this one appear on the big screen This really shouldn t be a book I d like Loads of detail on guns about which I know nothing and really want to know nothing Lots of violence, nasty people, an anti hero who is very hard to like and yet I LOVE IT Victor is perhaps slightly less enigmatic in this second book He s not amoral, he has limits he won t cross He does care for people he allows to get just a little closer to him and I suspect many women readers are waiting to see if love can change him Could he love Probably not bu This really shouldn t be a book I d like Loads of detail on guns about which I know nothing and really want

suppose that not much changes in his life in this story It s another series of adventures in his job as a killer Of course things go wrong That s what makes the story buzz.I did have a little trouble following some of the double dealing in the arms world Occasionally, the plot seemed to take second place to an opportunity to show us Victor at his best, ducking and diving and going through such painstaking manoeuvres to ensure he s not being followed and that his weapons are perfect, that he s sure of the scenario He s pushed harder than he prefers in this second book And sent in to kill at very short notice is not the way he likes But that s great for the reader The final scene in the book is just breathtaking I couldn t stop reading.If you like fast paced intelligent thrillers, I can strongly recommend this You don t have to have read the first book before, but I think it helps Even better than his first novel Tom Wood does a nice job of interweaving a rather complicated plot involving the CIA s plan to use Victor the Assassin as a means of causing a mini war between international arms dealers When those plans fall apart, Victor must flee for his life and unravel the mystery of who is using him as part of a larger plan Highly recommended book from an excellent writer Real gritty and a bit gory in parts but never feels over the top or contrived Looking forward to V
