Publisher's Summary

It's not how long you'll live....
Now that professional assassin Victor is indentured to British Intelligence, he is tasked with eliminating the worst of the worst. One such man is Milan Rados, a former Serbian paramilitary commander wanted for war crimes and now head of an organized criminal network in Belgrade. He has escaped justice once already, so it's Victor's job to take the justice to him.
It's how soon they'll die.
Victor might be the best in the business, but with powerful friends and an entire crew to protect him, Rados is a hard man to corner and even harder to kill. To get close to his target, Victor will need more than his deadly skills. An unlikely ally can provide him with the edge he seeks, but there's a price on Victor's head - and a killer who won't quit knows just how to find him....

Victor, the assassin you just hate to love?!?

What does Rob Shapiro bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Rob Shapiro had narrated all of the Victor books and does an excellent job. His voice is PERFECT for this character.

Victor, he's intelligent, versatile and very knowledgeable on many topics. He knows music, art, antiques, historical events, jewelry, leaders of nations (past and present), guns, ammunition and combat strategies. He's observant down to the most minute minutiae.
He's also a loner who places no real value on life except his own. He doesn't curse or litter. He appears normal on the outside but his mind is always going as he plans his next move, his future and how the people around him can benefit him. Always in a custom suit, he's tall, dark and handsome. His word means something to him and in a strange way he is an honorable man. There's that something about him that makes you want to root for him even though you know he's not a good guy.
In this book he's been hired by MI6 (British Intelligence) to execute a ruthless drug lord only to find out he's been given poor intelligence and to make things more exciting someone has taken out a contract on him. Victor gets himself into the organization, the remainder of the book deals with his fulfilling his obligations and getting himself out alive.
There's plenty of action and a lot of listening to his thought processes.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Fantastic return to form...

Any additional comments?

Victor gets back to doing the things he does best in this book. Like many others I was disappointed in the previous installment "The Darkest Day." The plot of that story was ridiculous and it read like the author was trying to write a movie script not a thriller. "A Time To Die" is reminiscent of the the first three books in the series and that is great news.

Victor is best when he is fighting battles that are large in scale but local in scope. He also does best in Europe where the author has a unique talent for describing bleak old world city-scapes that suit Victors personality perfectly. I devoured this book over the course of a couple days and rank it right at the top with the first two books in this series as my favorite thrillers.
