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 couldn't finish this one"

    Victor is one of the least likable characters I've ever met, just zero personality, and the perfect at everything hit man, extra proficient with weapons, martial arts, and an incredible ability to instantly, and without knowing all the facts, make the absolute correct decision during times of extreme uncertainty.

    No situation he can't perfectly handle, no mistakes, no faulty logic. Ever. No wisecracks, flirting, or fun and interesting relationships with other characters. Yawn. Maybe people like that exist, but you wouldn't want to hang out with them, or spend 12 hours reading about them.

    Probably OK if you're looking for pure escapism, but if you're looking for an interesting read with compelling characters you might ultimately care about, this isn't it.

    "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'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.

    "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.
