Having passed the test, he's introduced to a group of mercenaries and killers who are tasked to perform the ultimate assassination.In this group, Victor meets someone from his past, someone who recruited him to the life he now knows-someone he thought was dead. And when he wants out, it's too late-his former mentor has other plans for him...

    "3rd in the series and the best yet!"

    I'd like to say it's all tom wood but this narrator is on point. Vince the Assassin series is good but this book hits it out of the park. Start here or two books back, you won't be disappointed!

    "Love this assassin"

    Finally, an assassin that buttons up all the details by the end of the book...and the narrator is perfect...Rob Shapiro is spot on and does a good job in conveying warmth or steal in the Victor. I love that Victor does not cuss or act disrespectful. Will be reading as many books as I can with this character.

    "I love Victor"

    This was the best of the three so far although the others are good too. This was so exiting and the plot was not as sprawling as the others, which made it so the I could not stop listening.

    "Although this was yet another gripping and exciting story.."

    Although this was yet another gripping and exciting story in the Victor series, the plot involved him exposing himself to risks he simply would not take.

    Nevertheless, and just like the first two books, Victor is awesome, dealing with every risk thrown his way.

    And as ever, having survived the scary, stressful and exhausting journey alongside him, the listener/reader is left wanting more.

    Story
    "Best of the Three-book Series"

    This is the series featuring Victor, the Assassin. In this book, he is working for the CIA and takes on an assignment to substitute for another assassin whom he recently killed. The story is great with Victor moving through the "job" assigned to the other assassin. He is able to do it, because the contractor has never met the man he hired, so Victor is perfectly believable. The story takes a slight twist when the contractor brings in the other assassin's estranged wife and expects a reaction from the assassin (really Victor). Victor shows he is still a really good guy when he puts the safety of the other assassin's wife and child ahead of his own, even though he had never met her before this. The author does a great job moving between multiple facets of the story until they eventually collide to create an exciting ending. Highly recommend.

    Story
    "Back in good form"
    What made the experience of listening to The Game the most enjoyable?

    Unlike book 2, I thought this book was more tightly formed. The plot was logical, and while somewhat complex, flowed much better than book 2 in this series. The tension builds almost unnoticed until the action packed end. I loved the first book but thought book 2 was too disjointed and unnecessarily complicated, this one is just right.


    What does Rob Shapiro bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great readers like Shapiro, keep characters voices interesting and consistent while moving the story along with ease.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read if you enjoy action, international intrigue and likable bad guys like Victor.
