I wasn't disappointed. What Wood provides is a cracking tale, full of action sequences that twist the plot this was and that. The characters are great too, with the enemy being truly nasty. Where the writer excels is in the description and detail of Victor's actions as he attempts to avoid getting caught. The storyline is good and the pace of the plot allows tension to grow, making it a joy to read.
If you enjoy Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels, you will relish these stories. Wood just gets better and better. Well Done!
This is Tom Wood's fourth full length book about Victor the seemingly unkillable assassin. It's pacy and violent. Very. Tom Wood takes you into the mind of the world's best assassin while he deals with a rather different project (no spoilers).
There are plenty of nasty people entwined in the ultimate survival test for Victor.
Make yourself a large pot of tea, turn your phone off, and settle down undisturbed for one hell of a ride. Don't count on sleeping much.
Bravo Tom Wood, when's the next book out?
Lots of London based action, but a couple of frustrations. We have clearly seen how careful Victor is and this is established very early, then we see him go out of character and do some stupid and risky things. Also the big reveal about what this is all about felt a bit flat and under-whelming. So while this was okay it could have, and should have, been a lot better.
