When Victor is called to meet with an old friend who ultimately betrayed him, what he thought was an ambush is in fact a plea for help. As a Russian gangster, Norimov is accustomed to death threats, but now an unknown enemy wants more than his life. They intend to kill everyone he cares about, including his missing daughter Gisele. This time, Victor's job is not to kill but to protect. Unfortunately, locating Gisele is his first mistake - because someone is watching his every move.
Before she went into hiding, Gisele had uncovered a secret worth killing for - and now Victor has brought the enemy right to her doorstep. The least he can do is help her escape. But the ruthless network they're up against has the police, MI-5, and every major news outlet joining in the manhunt across London.

Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
That's the sound of a micro mystery breaking open. Victor the Assassin faces a macro mystery in each book... A job that's seriously impossible. But between the assignment and the conclusion... There's a carpet of pop-it beads that Victor's gotta' walk... Each one a devilish threat to his life, and each larger than the last. And each's gotta' be stomped on the way to the other end.
And so these books CRACKLE! Each pop-it is a cliff hanger that keeps me in the car... In the driveway... Holds me to a chore, keeps me on the treadmill... And speaking of devilish... Rob Shapiro has a simmering voice that's like a soundtrack of distant drums... Menacingly pounding out a rhythm of sometimes dread, sometime awe, all the time tension.
Wood is a clever story teller with plot lines that tie together action explosions that frequently come from Tom-Clancy-like detailed gear.
Yep, I liked "No Tomorrow" enough to warn you NOT TO BUY OR LISTEN TO THIS BOOK unless you started the series at the beginning with "The Killer". Why suffer spoiler alerts as Victor the Assassin grows with each new installment. Wood's is our Ian Fleming, only wonderfully darker and not as absurd... Well, not quite :-)
These books... They CRACKLE!
If you like non-cartoonish spy thrillers, you'll love the Victor the Assassin series. Period.
First, I think Rob Shapiro does an absolutely wonderful job narrating the Victor novels. While I wouldn't know a British accent from an Austrian, or a Russian he does them differently enough that they are believable. And he does a decent female voice. Second, I do enjoy the Victor series and this book is another great installment in the adventure. Tom Wood keeps the action going nonstop but without making it feel forced or contrived as some espionage authors or books feel. The scenes and action flow seamlessly and continuously throughout the novel making it near impossible to stop reading/listening to. As others have said it seems hard to root for an assassin or even like one, but Victor, like the Grey Man Court Gentry, are assassins we can root for. I can’t wait for the next in this series.
The amazing Rob Shapiro. He narrates this and all the other books in the series perfectly. He is so......Victor!!
The end..... Don't want to spoil it for anyone but it was enjoyable. Just when you think the book is over Tom Wood throws us another bone. Lol.
Yes!! This is just as good as the other books he narrated. The story was not as great and Wood kind of glossed over some parts making it less believable but overall it was an amazing book with a great performance.
Yes!!! But my girlfriend wouldn't let me. Lol!!! She says I disconnect from her when Im listening to it.
Yes. More, more, more,more,more !!!!!
A straight-tailed slick-Hog knuckle dragging mouth breather; and proud of it!
When an old acquaintance needs to protect his daughter he reaches out to Victor. Victor has his reasons for saying yes despite their past. Victor does an admirable job of staying off a kill team's radar; if not for governmental help for the bad guys, they would be fine. As it turns out Victor and the girl need his escape & evasion, and ultimately combat skills. The repartee is not alway great but the overall story is still good. I enjoy the multiple plot threads, twists, and little details that Tom Wood puts into his stories, they reward a re-listen. As for the main character, we glimpse some of Victor's interesting backstory. We also see a bit of character growth in Victor's willingness to help someone who betrayed him in the past. He also affords adversaries the opportunity (if they are worthy) to walk away not that they always take him up on it. It's not much but it's something. I have to say, I like The Killer the most, but No Tomorrow is well worth a listen. Rob Shapiro's narration is first rate. I am anxiously waiting for the next Audible installment in this series.
This book was less plausible than the others in the series and I loathed the character Giselle. The interaction between Victor and Giselle was nonsensical and contrived. The Victor series is strong but this is the weakest offering in the bunch. Still a fan and I still would pay money for this book and whatever comes after, which I guess is all that matters...
I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
No Tomorrow is my favorite of the six novels in the Victor the Assassin series. Victor's job in this novel is to protect, for money of course, rather than to kill. The man he's protecting is rather evil, but that's okay with Victor. But he must kill to protect.
Tom Wood writes books that are impossible to put down and having Rob Shapiro narrate means listening should start early in the day to avoid staying up all night. This novel is the perfect fix for an action and suspense junkie.
I really like Rob Shapiro doing Victor. I have looked for other books but he doesn't have many. Would like to see him narrating more mysteries and suspense.
This is a really good Victor book. It is fast paced with plenty of heart pounding edge of your seat moments through out the story. I was a little disappointed that it didn't pick up where the last book left off but this was a complete story on its own. The book goes full circle from beginning to end, I won't say how because I don't want to spoil it for anyone but the conclusion leaves your jaw dropped. I actually had to go back and listen to it a second time not sure I had heard it correctly. So now the door is open for a follow up to either book 3 or 4, or maybe Tom Wood will figure outhow to pull them all together, either way I am looking forward to the next This book is worth your time and credit!
Victor is as good as ever. The story moves along with a gradual build and a few curves. Pay close attention to the first chapter. It will help at the end.
