Victor the assassin is living a solitary, peaceful life in Iceland when he's drawn into a job for an unidentified Swiss broker. 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...

I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
Read my review of Book 1 of 3. This writer is outstanding! Get all 3 and you will be happy. I can't wait for the next book. Same satisfaction as "Mitch Rapp" who works to protect our nation, but this character works for money as an assassin but has a conscious and "monster skills"(weapons, strategy, technology, intelligence). Fun and exciting.
Tucked away in the beautiful mountains of New Mexico.
Frankly, I'm kinda irked by book 3. Victor was such a character in book 1 that I bought into the series. By book 3, I don't even recognize him. He's doing stuff that book 1 Victor would NEVER contemplate, so the whole story line is forced and therefore unbelievable.
The old Victor is gone, at the convenience of the author but to the detriment of the character. When I spent the first 40 minutes of the book listening to Victor tail a target…let's just say the experience went downhill from there.
The Victor I knew is gone, so it's time for me to move on.
Wood's writing and Shapiro's narration have produced another fine listen. Victor behaves a bit out of character from the first 2 in the series (meeting people face to face for example), but his cold calculating ever stratigizing mind is still a strong characteristic. The story is a different twist than the usual assassination character novels - nice to see something new. I can't wait for the next in this series.
Proud Canadian. Lakeside views. LOVE audio. Living with MS. Prefer male authors. J.K. fooled me aka Silkworm. Action, adventure, suspense!!
Tom Wood does it again!!! I have to buy and download the next book in this series TODAY! I enjoyed this book even more than the second in the series!! Many twists and turns and surprises...if you love Victor "The Game" will cement your relationship!
I have found the voice on audiobook is more important than the story. I love audiobook now I can listen while driving. The can listen and play on my ipad. I highly recommend anyone commuting to get just one then you are hooked. I do wish they were a little less in cost it is nice you purchase on your iPhone and you can also get it on the ipad,
Where victor had a soft moment for the boy Peter. There were so other great parts I only was disappointed it's the last book.
How he got the other assassin.
Just could not put it down
Please have another venture for Victor. He wasn't killed off thank goodness!!!!!!!
Tom Wood is an excellent author. His main character , with his social flaws is somehow sympathetic a/l/a Dexter. Rob Shapiro does his usual fabulous job with voices/narration
Rob is the perfect narrator. A great job of all of Tom wood's books
