Great read Tense and fast paced Victor is one of my favorite characters, a bad guy doing good..well sometimes Tom wood can t write fast enough for me THis arrived this morning and I opened it to read the first chapter whilst I was waiting for the oven to heat up and then ended up reading it in one sitting So fast and exciting, literally couldnt put it down Another brilliant read. Victor, a hitman without a conscience protects a human rights lawyer inBetter Off Dead, he bestselling BBC RadioSimon Mayo Book Club pick A hitman must be anonymous, amoral and aloneVictor is the face in the crowd you dont see, a perfect assassin with nothing to live forBut when an old friend turns to him for help, he finds he cant refuse For once his objective isnt to kill, but to protectHunted through the streets of London by ruthless enemies, Victor needs to be than just a bodyguard but his every move leads danger closer to the very person hes vowed to defend Published in the US as No Tomorrow I enjoyed the book but not as much as previous, story line I thought was a little weak compared to previous books.Still very enjoyablenot 4stars this time perhaps 3.5stars..and the next one please As usual has a number of excellent, tense, set pieces with immense detail However I felt that the story, about protecting the life of a step daughter of a Russian gangster, for somewhat unconvincing reasons, detracts from the pure character seen especially in the first two books. Reading all of the Victor books All excellent so far If you like Lee Child Reacher you might be surprised to find you like Victor even Decent enough story but didn t bob along at the right pace Too much nostalgia irrelevant story padding it out And the typos and missing repeated words are becoming a bore As is the general denigration of London UK Every other country beams sunshine whereas London gets it between the eyes Ho hum. The best assassin in books todaywhat a great writer Mr Wood is and his anti hero had me cheering him on regardlessand what a page turner ,one of the most exciting books I have read in a long while. I like the Victor series it is one of those guilty pleasures as it is not really a bookseries that requires all your braincells on the alert but sometimes a bit of shameless action is nice as well This book was true in style to its predecessors, but I am not sure what it was that made me enjoy it a little less I can t put a finger on it which is not quite useful for a review I must admit The story seemed a bit forced, as if the writer had run out of ideas for a good story line We never get to find out what was so special to Victor about the woman mentioned in the book.I gues we can use our imagination on that part, but still Yet again another gripping story from this talented author.I really cant get enough of Victor.Im just pulled in.Were seeing different insights into him in every story.The tension is superb.Excellent.Straight into the next one.
