    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    "3 out of 3 wonderful Thriller"

    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.

    Story
    "Oh Victor, Why did you Leave Me?"

    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.

    "Another Great Victor Story"

    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.

    "Not the last"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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,


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Game?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    How he got the other assassin.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just could not put it down


    Any additional comments?

    Please have another venture for Victor. He wasn't killed off thank goodness!!!!!!!

    "A great #3 book and performance"
    What made the experience of listening to The Game the most enjoyable?

    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


    Have you listened to any of Rob Shapiro’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Rob is the perfect narrator. A great job of all of Tom wood's books
