Overview

Tom Wood, whose writing “crackles like the early work of Robert Ludlum” (Booklist) returns with a white-knuckle read—and an anti-hero assassin who sets a new standard for delivering brutal, no-holds-barred action…

HE GOES BY ONE NAME.
HE HAS NO PAST.
HIS FUTURE IS MURDER.

Victor’s been out of commission for six months—but as dangerous as ever and still at the top of his game. A former assassin-for-hire now locked in uneasy alliance with a CIA special unit, Victor is in Berlin preparing for what was supposed to be a simple assignment: taking out the scout of a notorious crime lord. But life—and death—is full of surprises.

As Victor tracks his target, he realizes that he’s not the only assassin with a special interest in his prey. And if Victor is going to do his job, he has to stop someone else from doing theirs.

Includes a preview of Tom Wood’s The Enemy
