Publisher's Summary

Forget James Bond. Forget Jason Bourne. Forget Jack Bauer.

Meet Victor. He's an assassin - a man with no past and no surname. He lives alone. He operates alone. He's given a job; he takes out the target; he gets paid. He's The Killer.

Victor arrives in Paris to perform a standard kill and collect for an anonymous client. He completes it with trademark efficiency - only to find himself in the middle of an ambush and fighting for his life. Pursued by determined enemies, a woman too beautiful to be safe, and intelligence agencies from both sides of the Atlantic, Victor will soon discover there is nowhere left for him to hide...and no one he can trust. But he is every bit as ruthless as those hunting him. And Victor will find out who wants him dead and why - one corpse at a time.

    Any additional comments?

    Victor just may be my top draft pick in my fantasy paintball tournament. Rapp, Hawke, Reacher, Wells, Allon, Ryan, Harvath, Malone. If you know these guys, you will like this book. Engaging from the start.

    "Great Read!"
    If you could sum up The Killer in three words, what would they be?

    Can't wait for another book by this author. Keeps you on the edge of your seat.

    "Wow, the "view series" icon has me drooling...."
    What did you love best about The Killer?

    ...in anticipation for book#2. What I love best about this book is I have nothing negative to say about it. The action never stops and has me wishing I was there. I must admit perhaps the reason I loved the book so much was because my hopes were not very high that it would be on par with Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Mark Greaney or Ben Coes. I cant help but feel Tom Wood is on his way. If this is your genre and you cant like if not love this book, then this isnt your genre!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love a story that can make me wish for nothing but good fortune for a really bad person.


    What about Rob Shapiro’s performance did you like?

    There was nothing not to like. His performance was beyond adequate.


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

    Indeed, thinking of changing career.....


    Any additional comments?

    Cant wait for book#2 in what I hope to be a long series.

    "rooting for the bad guy"

    I love this series. The action sequences pull you in and the character building quickly has you sympathizing with the character. The authors knowledge of weapons and military techniques add to the story instead of detracting as so many author's stumble through completely unrealistic scenarios and weapons.

    "As good as Tom Clancy!"

    "Just WOW!"

    This is a sophisticated and thrilling plot extremely well written. The narration by Rob Shapiro is one of the very best I have heard. So outstanding I will be looking for more audio books with his excellent narration.

    "Great Book"

    This book was great from beginning to end. To those who said it slowed down after the first half or so I say that I didn't notice that. Fast-paced and action packed where you root for the bad guy. If you liked Mel Gibson in "Payback" you'll love this!

    "Victor is a bad guy, but a good read"
    Would you listen to The Killer again? Why?

    I enjoyed The Killer so much that I've listened to it three times already...and I am sure I will again. Although he is not a good guy, Victor lives by rules, a lot of rules. And they are geared to keeping him alive in a world and profession that is unforgiving of mistakes. Why do I keep going back for a fresh listen? It's because Tom Wood gets the little things right. He researches the equipment and his character motivation is nothing but spot-on. Everything is believable and unpredictable. All of that makes for a good story.
