Overview

The Killer by Tom Wood, Tom Hinshelwood

The hunter has become the hunted

Victor is a freelancer, a professional, a killer---the best there is. He's ice cold, methodical, and deadly. He lives alone. He operates alone. No one knows his background, or even his name. For him, business is a straight transaction. He's given a job; he takes out the target; he gets paid.

He's in Paris to perform a standard kill and collect for an anonymous client. The contract is simple, routine, and Victor completes it with trademark efficiency, only to find himself in the middle of an ambush and fighting for his life. Faced with powerful and determined enemies, and caught in the crossfire of an international conspiracy unfolding across four continents, Victor is forced to go on the run across a winter-ravaged Europe. Pursued by the authorities, hired assassins, and intelligence agencies from both sides of the Atlantic, he discovers that no place is safe for him anymore and there is no one he can trust.

But Victor is no easy target, and he's every bit as ruthless as those hunting him. He will find out who wants him dead and why, one corpse at a time.

Debut author Tom Hinshelwood has written a classic cat-and-mouse thriller for the twenty-first century that takes off from the very first page and never lets up. Filled with adrenaline-charged action worthy of the big screen, The Killer will have readers looking down the barrel of a gun at every turn.
The Killer was previously published under the title, "The Hunter".

I picked this book up from the bokstore not knowing anything about the author and I could not put it down. Like a galloping horse the story springs from the starting gate and whisks you along on one incredible non-stop adventure. Victor is the coolest guy since Bond. I gave the book to a friend and its worked its way through my office. we can't wait for another novel from Tom Wood. If you like intrigue, exotic locations and a great story, pick this book up right now - you won't be disappointed!

I enjoyed this book very much until around page 240. 20 page car chases and knife fights don't do it for me. The book was very well written hence the four star rating, but I think this new author is much to good to have 40-50 pages of filler in the middle of a novel. As I said. Very well written, so give it a shot you could do far worse.
