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.

Second confirmation that Victor 'the 1 man army' is a double hard bastard. If you like action this is for you.
I like the action character like Jason bourne
but this was not as good as book 1
So glad the excitement of a good tale has returned Victor to quality Wood writing! Lots of intrigue, sub-plots and international agencies to lend to a gripping story. We even see a caring side to the enigmatic assassin. Great stuff!
It's an unrelenting rollercoaster of action that ploughs on, do exciting and thoroughly recommended.
buy (reviews need more words apparently)
excellent book have read and listened to it many times would recommend it to anyone
Great narrator, but story not quite as gripping and interesting as the first book, intrigued to see where it goes from here though.
As usual the story is so good and one can never guess how victor will manage to survive. great detail
Victor is good at what he does, that is until someone wants him dead. Its hard to stay alive when people want you desd, but thats what victod must do
vert very good. starting to get hooked on victor easy to follow and enjoyable
will read all of them fantastic read and would definitely recommend to other people. cool.
I'm ready to download the next one in the series now. I enjoy the description that had me watching the action as a movie in my head.
Have you listened to any of Daniel Philpott’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Yes. Another great performance, demonstrating what a talented narrator can add to the enjoyment of audio books
Any additional comments?
It wouldn't be essential to have read (listened to) the first in the series to find this book thoroughly entertaining but personally I'd recommend "The Hunter" first as it will give context to parts of the story.
I enjoyed The Hunter more as it introduced and developed "victor".
This had a good story line with sub plots as well , but again the Narration stands out for me as the star ..
Enjoyable,.. could leave at different stages but sometimes sat in the car listening instead of heading into the office to work due to excitement of pace in the action parts .
Will pop back to Harry Bosch series now and come back again at a later date for the third in this series (just to keep it fresh)
Excellent follow on to The Hunter. So good I have got the third book The Game.
I hope this series keep going on like Bond did.
The plot kept my attention all the way through
Will be reading any more books in this series.
I highly recommend this author
