An impossible mission, for a man who barely exists.
The mysterious assassin known only as Victor is locked in an uneasy alliance with the CIA. And he has a list: Three names, three victims. Worst of all, Victor is given just two days to take down his targets, forcing him to compromise his usual extreme care.
With each name Victor crosses off his list, the game grows far more complex - and far more lethal. A conspiracy begins to unwind and suddenly this perfect assassin becomes the perfect target.
Zooming from Moscow to London and Washington, and loaded with suspense, twists and sex appeal, The Enemy is a high-octane thrill-ride ideal for fans of Lee Child.

"Anti hero supreme"
How Tom Wood makes his readers care so much about a hired killer is a mystery but we do care and I found myself rooting for Victor. I enjoyed seeing the different facets of the characters lives. The only bits I would cut down on are the exhaustive descriptions of the weapons' capabilities. These do tend to stall the story's momentum. However that is a small niggle really and it hasn't stopped me reading the second book straight after finishing the first! I'm looking forward to reading the next instalment in the near future...
A person with time to waste
No characterisation.If you want to read about killing after killing then this could be for you.
I'm nearly 70 and have read thousands of books. Although I now read much easier books I can say tha t this was one of the worst books I have ever read!
2nd book I've read by Tom Wood and again I couldn't stop listening to it, can't wait to read the next one
"Oh my this was good..."
absolutely gripping and had me captivated to the point I did not want to put my iPad/phone down and stop listening. :)
Victor is the man. Intelligent and ruthless, I liken him to andy Mcnab's Nick Stone, but victor seems far more sophisticated. Whoever thought killing could be cool?
He is such a great narrator in that he fits the character and personality of victor superbly.
This book was superb. I have a new love= Victor the assassin. Look forward to reading other books in the series.
"A great New franchise"
One of the best new characters I have found, no more Will Robie coming over the horizon I was chuffed to find Victor
The tensions was palpable in the book and Tesseracts calmness was chilling
The readers tonality and acting skills made you feel like you were watching a drama
Victor the assassin, ice cold but with a heart
Thoroughly recommend to all
"not a bad story line but could be better..."
brilliant audio performance but the story could be better and the escapades are sometimes a little hard to believe... thoroughly enjoyable though...
"Keeps you on your feet following the story line"
Good story line, with a good level of detail, but not too much.
Unlike James Bond the theme is more real, fresh and in the time.
Great action and set pieces, poor dialog. Could be 5 star if the dialog was more realistic.
This series just gets better and better. I've already downloaded the next book. Fully addicted Victor fan now!! Love it.
"I was gripped from start to finish!"
the breathtaking action and the chilling atmosphere
I'd compare this to "The Hunter" because the plot is kind of the same
he got every character's voice spot on! Each accent was brilliant and the way he narrated the character's thoughts in their own accent as well made them more interesting
yes but I couldn't, I couldn't bring myself to press stop sometimes lol
this book is one of the best books I've read in a long time, I've read all of the James Bond books and; I must say that this beats some of them. I say some of them because this book is for this generation. I could not stop listening to this book and now I've listened to it, I went back to my player and listened to the first book of this series. I can't wait for the release of the next instalment of this series, the action, diolog, settings, the tense atmosphere and the dark mood all really take you by surprise as you go further and deeper into the world of contract killing, this is one book you won't forget in a hurry
